We’re edging close to E3, and we already know quite a bit about what will be there. We’re getting new looks at Cyberpunk 2077 and Jedi: Fallen Order, our first look at the Avengers game, probably a bunch of announcements at Microsoft’s press conference—as well as a bit of Halo Infinite, surely—and a couple of surprises from Ubisoft along with more about Ghost Recon: Breakpoint.

We’re edging close to E3, and we already know quite a bit about what will be there. We’re getting new looks at Cyberpunk 2077 and Jedi: Fallen Order, our first look at the Avengers game, probably a bunch of announcements at Microsoft’s press conference—as well as a bit of Halo Infinite, surely—and a couple of surprises from Ubisoft along with more about Ghost Recon: Breakpoint.
And this past week has seen the typical stream of leaks gushing all over the sidewalk leading up to the big event, as well as a few official announcements that popped out ahead of the show to avoid getting crushed in the mayhem. Here’s a brief recap of what we’ve learned this week, and we’ll follow it up some of our own predictions of what else we might end up be seeing.
Leaks, reveals, and rumors
Elden Ring is the game by From Software and George R. Martin
After some speculation a few weeks ago, the game by From Software and George R. Martin may be called Elden Ring. It looks like we’ll hear about it at the show after Bandi Namco’s E3 assets apparently leaked: it’s described as an action-adventure RPG.
A new Tales Of RPG called Tales Arise
Another E3 asset leak from Bandi Namco only shows a couple of screenshots but Tales Arise appears to be the follow-up to 2016’s Talse of Berseria. It hasn’t been confirmed yet, but we’ve known a new Tales has been in development since 2018.
A new Watch Dogs game called Legion, set in London
An Amazon listing spilled the beans on Watch Dogs Legion, and at the very least the name has been officially confirmed, as is the fact that it’ll appear at E3. Still unconfirmed: the details, though the leaked info tells us it will take place in a post-Brexit dystopian London and that players will be able to play as any citizen in the game, who (somehow) each have their own voice overs and animations.
Baldur’s Gate 3 is confirmed
We didn’t get much, just a creepy and somewhat gross cinematic teaser trailer, but Baldur’s Gate 3 is heading our way and we’re going to find out lots more at E3. We can say this for a fact since it’ll be on the PC Gaming Show on Monday!
Rainbow Six Quarantine, a new co-op shooter from Ubisoft
It’s just a rumor right now, but it comes from Nibel, a reliable source. It may be a co-op spin-off set in the Siege universe and based on the limited-time Outbreak mode for Siege that appeared in March of 2018. In Outbreak, an epidemic ravaged a town in New Mexico and teams of three agents battled their way through the streets and buildings and protected objectives against wave attacks from infected monsters.
A new expansion pack for the Sims 4 called Island Living
This looks legit, gathered after Joran Jovic from Sims Community searched the Origin Store. It only appeared for a second, but it was enough time to extract screenshots and a description of Island Living, an expansion that includes mermaids, dolphins, sand castles, and sunburns. Our Predictions
Despite the crush of news before E3 starts, the actual show still manages to be a carnival of surprises. Every year we do our best to guess at what the major publishers have in their back pockets.
