This year is shaping up to be one of the best in a long, long time when it comes to gaming.
We’ve already pulled out 28 incredible titles confirmed to be on the way in the coming months, but what about those that haven’t been announced yet?
Naturally, E3 – the biggest gaming expo in the world – is the place to make such announcements.
So, ahead of the E3 show in June, here are six incredible games we’re almost certain to see unveiled.
Let’s kick off with an old favourite.
The last Splinter Cell game was years ago – in the middling, but still fun, Blacklist.
Sam Fisher recently made an appearance in the brilliant Ghost Recon: Wildlands – and was met with warm regard by fans.
There was even a reference to a new mission, which could be a tease for the rumoured game.
Best of all, Michael Ironside, who voiced the hero until Conviction before he was replaced by Eric Johnson (it turned out to be a very, very unpopular move) returns – and has aged the star.
Come on, Ubisoft – make it happen.
Watch Dogs 3
Another game almost certainly to be revealed by Ubisoft this year – and release in 2019 – is Watch Dogs 3.
Watch Dogs 2 may not have sold anywhere near as many copies as GTA but it’s still a fantastic game – and did a lot to turn the series around after the downgrade controversy surrounding the 2014 original.
There are even rumours it’ll be coming top London.
At the end of WD2, one of the characters talks about future DedSec operations, with a code tracking them back to London.
Assassin’s Creed: Dynasty
Assassin’s Creed Origins was easily the best AC ever made – largely because it benefited from an extra year of development.
The same will likely be the case for the next AC, which is strongly rumoured to be called Assassin’s Creed: Dynasty.
Unconfirmed reports suggest the game will take place in Feudal Japan, which is an era fans have yearned for.
You may have to hang on for a while, though – the earliest it’ll drop is the tail-end of 2019. Still, a teaser at E3 is very much on the cards.
It’s been a mediocre few months for Xbox – who have been overshadowed by a number of Sony exclusives.
This E3 expect them to come out fighting – with a new Halo being the ace up their sleeves.
Although nothing has been confirmed, Halo 6 is almost certainly in development and, if all goes well, there could be a shock release at the end of the year.
Expect far more focus on Master Chief this year, too.
Halo 5 alienated some fans because you didn’t play as the Chief for a majority of the game.
Speaking to GamesTM, franchise development director Frank O’Connor said the team “took some digs for the storytelling,” with Halo 5.
“We definitely marketed in a way that we hoped was going to bring surprise, but for some fans and certainly fans of Master Chief, it was a huge disappointment because they wanted more Chief.” You can read more about Halo 6 here.
The last game was the brilliant 2013 hit, Bioshock Infinite, so it’s time for another outing.
Very little has been revealed about the new game – probably because rumours suggest 2K are currently developing the game in secret.
It’s unlikely we’ll see any more than a teaser at E3, but just confirmation at this point would be incredible.
Would you kindly release this game asap, 2K?
Red Dead Redemption 2 may be Rockstar’s main focus right now, but Bully 2 surely has to be on their radar.
Leaked concept art has been floating around the internet for the past few years, which hints the game is in development.
The first has become somewhat of a cult classic since it was released two console generations ago.
Bully 2 would be the perfect game to bridge the gap between Red Dead 2 and a new GTA.
