As E3 is only a few days away, we cannot help but take a look at a few of the great announcements, games, and previews that we got to see last year, and how they are doing now!
I think that it is only fitting to start with what many believe to be one of the most anticipated games of the last few years. Cyberpunk 2077 CD Projekt Red’s brain child, was originally announced in 2012 with nothing more than a mock title screen. 7 years later we are on the edge of our seats to see a more indepth dive of the game, and see what Cyberpunk 2077 is really all about. As of this time there is still no release date given to the public, however CD Projekt Red has stated recently that this years upcoming E3 in 2019 will be the largest for the developer since they began.
Assassin’s Creed Odyssey:
Next we have one of the longest running Ubisoft titles, Assassin’s Creed Odyssey. Ubisoft during last years E3 chose to end their keynote with this announcement. The trailer was stunning as most Assassin’s Creed have been in the past, and left a yearning for more in all those who watched it. Odyssey released 3 months later, and was received very highly by the gaming community. Many online personalities and streamers did “playthroughs” of the game, and absolutely loved it. We can only wonder if there is another Assassin’s Creed title in the works, and what time period we can expect it to be in!
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate
Last but certainly not least, we come to one of the best selling game titles of all time. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Nintendo held this till last, and used the majority of their time speaking about it. They announced that for the first time ever, every single Super Smash Bros. character that has appeared in any of the previous games will be available to play. They went as far as to add character that had only been downloadable through online dlc, and non-Nintendo characters as well. Nintendo pulled out all stops, and the reception of the game was nothing less than perfect. 1 year later the game is being played and loved by both the more competitive community, and the casual series loving fans.
Although last years E3 was a huge success for many game companies, and developers, there were a few games that went through a sort of Fallout within the gaming community. With that being said I fully expect this years E3 to be so much more. The anticipation, subtle hints given, and all around need for a new game leaves us only days away from what could be possibly the greatest year of E3 to date.
