E3 2021: the most anticipated announcements at the Los Angeles event

E3 2021: the most anticipated announcements at the Los Angeles event

E3 2021

E3 2021 is about to begin! Although this year the event will take place in a completely digital format, due to the well-known problems related to the organization of face-to-face appointments, there will be no shortage of announcements relating to games already revealed or still unpublished.

So what are the most anticipated announcements at E3 2021? From Halo Infinite to Starfield, from Fable to Bayonetta 3, from Senua's Saga: Hellblade 2 to Rainbow Six: Quarantine, passing through Elden Ring, Final Fantasy 16, Forspoken and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2, here is a list of games that we hope to see on the virtual stage of the new edition of the Electronic Entertainment Expo.

Bayonetta 3

Bayonetta and her new look of the second chapter. Let's face it, Bayonetta 3 has become a bit of a meme: every year we hope to finally see it in action and it doesn't happen on time, but from PlatinumGames they point out from time to time that the development of the game for Nintendo Switch is progressing well. So where is it? Announced at the 2017 Game Awards, the new chapter of the action series is making us wait a long time.

It's clear: all this desire to see the powerful witch Bayonetta again comes from the fact that she was the protagonist of two absolutely excellent titles , able to reaffirm the extraordinary abilities of the Japanese team and to offer us a very solid, spectacular and, most importantly, completely crazy experience. Is the appointment for the Nintendo Direct of E3 2021? We keep our fingers crossed.

Elden Ring

Elden Ring, the character seen in the first teaser. With Elden Ring we enter into a more concrete terrain, given that the numerous rumors surrounding the exciting project by From Software, created in collaboration with the famous writer George R.R. Martin, talk about a product that is practically ready, whose release has been postponed in 2020 due to the well-known problems related to the pandemic and the work from home of the developers.

So if Elden Ring will be launched by the end of this year, it goes without saying that an official presentation at E3 2021 represents the best opportunity to show the public what are the peculiarities and characteristics of this new experience, its dark and disturbing world, as well as its characters. Is the trailer what we have already seen? We'll probably find out in a few days.


Fable, an image from the cinematic trailer. Announced last year with a simple cinematic trailer, Fable carries on its shoulders the weight of a historic franchise, which undoubtedly deserved to be relaunched as part of a wide-ranging project, also ambitious from a technical point of view, which would explain the next-gen exclusive for PC and Xbox Series X | S.

At the same time, however, there are those who say that the development is still at sea, that the reveal was done too early and therefore there is a concrete possibility that at E3 2021 the game will not be shown with a gameplay trailer or a demo, or maybe it will not be shown at all. In fact, Microsoft and Bethesda will have so much more material to present ... or maybe not?

Final Fantasy 16

At the time of writing, Square Enix has not yet officially announced its conference at 'E3, even if it seems that the entire event has been stolen in some way, in a sensational way, and therefore there is a risk that it will be put online ahead of time. There is talk of a Musou based on the Final Fantasy series, but we know that all eyes will be on the new chapter of the series.

Announced last September during an event dedicated to PS5, Final Fantasy 16 will mark a return to the traditional fantasy for the franchise, projecting us into the fascinating world of Valisthea and revealing the truth about the powerful Mother Crystals. After the debut trailer, we certainly expect to see the game in action at E3 2021, with gameplay sequences that can give us a clear idea of ​​what awaits us in this promising new adventure.


Forspoken, the protagonist during a battle based on magic. Another round, another Square Enix production: Forspoken received an official name only a few weeks ago, since we knew the game previously with the temporary title of Project Athia, but it immediately got noticed thanks to the setting and the peculiarities of the protagonist , equipped with extraordinary powers that also allow it to fly.

At E3 2021 we certainly expect to review the title, perhaps with a long gameplay demo that clarifies the characteristics of the open world and succeeds to convey to us the charm of an experience that on paper is certainly endowed with great potential, but which must precisely communicate it effectively. The stage is the right one, we'll see.

Halo Infinite

Halo Infinite, the official artwork featuring the Master Chief. We can say without fear of denial that E3 2021 will be an opportunity for redemption for Halo Infinite after the well-known gameplay demo presented by Microsoft last July, criticized to the point of convincing the company to postpone the release of the game although it was the only first party production to support the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S launch line-up.

It's been nearly a year since then, the developers at 343 Industries have been working hard to revolutionize this new chapter of the series, also and above all on a technical level, and they are certainly eager to show us the result of their efforts. So let's get ready to finally see the game it should have been in action, and to welcome it with enthusiasm.

Rainbow Six: Quarantine

Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six: Quarantine, a stolen artwork. Ubisoft will hold the now traditional Forward on June 12, 2021, as a real E3 opening event, and there is great curiosity about what will be shown. Far Cry 6 will certainly be in the game, as will Assassin's Creed Valhalla's next expansion, The Siege of Paris, but we imagine that the spotlight will be on the unannounced titles above all.

Rainbow Six: Quarantine, an unofficial name for the next iteration of a very well-tested franchise, which with Siege has been able to conquer tens of millions of users and which will try to intercept further fans by putting on the table a simple and immediate cooperative formula, also supported this time from timely post-launch support.

Senua's Saga: Hellblade 2

Senua's Saga: Hellblade 2, an image from the first teaser. Let's go back to Microsoft for a particularly awaited exclusive, shown so far only with a short teaser. We are talking about Senua's Saga: Hellblade 2, the first, ambitious project set up by Ninja Theory after the acquisition by the Redmond company, as well as the sequel to an action adventure that has conquered a large number of players.

The ingredients that made the story of Senua so fascinating and particular are clear, and we bet that the new chapter will aim to further enrich them, giving greater depth to the mechanics that most needed finishing and placing everything inside one wide and suggestive scenery. The hope is to finally see a gameplay, and the opportunity is the right one: will we be satisfied?


Starfield, one of the stolen images of the game. Also in the part of Microsoft, also in this case the result of an important acquisition, that of Bethesda, Starfield certainly aims to establish itself as the game of the show, the one that the virtual visitors of E3 2021 will find themselves talking about longer and more often, thanks to a sci-fi setting focused on space exploration and the well-known experience of the developers in the field of action RPGs.

Closer to No Man's Sky than to Mass Effect, therefore far from the idea of ​​a space opera and more concrete in its mechanics, the game will certainly be shown with a full-bodied demo, which can effectively communicate the strengths of the project and immediately start pre-orders in view of a launch that, depending on of sources, will happen later this year or early next year.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2 , or what will be the name of the new chapter of the Nintendo series, was announced as a surprise during E3 2019 and undoubtedly represents something new for the Kyoto house, used to rethinking every single game of the saga from scratch to tell new stories, placed within a timeline definitely particular.

As mentioned, this time it will be different: Eiji Aonuma confessed that there were so many ideas and contents that did not find a place in the original Breath of the Wild, and from there the idea of a traditional sequel, developed very quickly thanks to a structure already prepared and tested. Will we see the game in action at E3 2021? Most likely!
