My E3 2016 wishlist

June 2, 2016

Well, it’s that time of year again, and E3 2016 is right around the corner! I get as excited about E3’s press conferences as normal people get about the Super Bowl. I recall taking a summer class in college a few years ago and watching Sony and Ubisoft’s press conference on my laptop in the back of the classroom.

GameSpot has compiled a list of all the games confirmed to be at the show so far, including Mafia III (!), The Legend of Zelda Wii U, Titanfall 2, and Dishonored 2, just to name a few. E3 is always full of surprises, and there are a few things I would love to see announced at this year's show. No matter how unrealistic, this is my personal E3 2016 wishlist.

New Red Dead game

A new Red Dead game has been all but confirmed, but I would be giddy over an official announcement from Rockstar. Red Dead Redemption is one of my favorite games, and I am itching to play a new game in that universe. That recent NeoGAF leak (http://gamerant.com/) of the new game's map was such a tease, although it should be taken with a grain of salt.

The Wolf Among Us, Season 2

The Wolf Among Us is my second favorite Telltale Games series, right behind The Walking Dead. It’s been a few years since the conclusion of Season 1, and fans have been anxiously awaiting a second season. I would fall out of my chair if they so much as teased a second season at E3 this year. I’m really not convinced that a second season is even happening, but I'm holding out hope!

The Walking Dead, Season 3

While we’re talking about Telltale Games, let’s talk about The Walking Dead, Season 3! Season 3 was confirmed a while back, but we haven’t heard anything about it in a while. I would love to see at least a teaser. I will never forget the impact Seasons 1 and 2 had on me, and I can’t wait to see what happens next.

The Last of Us sequel teaser

It’s not surprising that The Last of Us is getting a sequel, as it was one of the best-selling and most critically acclaimed games on the PlayStation 3. It’s a beloved franchise to fans around the world, and we are all anxious to see just a glimpse of the sequel. However, with Uncharted 4 having just launched a few weeks ago, it may be a little early to expect anything related to The Last of Us.

Visceral Games’ Star Wars game

Since her departure from Naughty Dog two years ago, Amy Hennig has been working hard over at Visceral Games on a third-person, single-player Star Wars game, and I am super anxious to see something on it. Last year at MetroCon, Nolan North (voice of Nathan Drake in Uncharted) said that those who love Amy Hennig’s style of storytelling should be excited to play this game, which will reboot a brand new Star Wars franchise in the style of Uncharted (1313, anyone?). Star Wars 1313 looked incredible, and Star Wars fans around the globe were heartbroken when it was cancelled. I can only dream that Hennig’s game is a revival of Star Wars 1313. I am really holding out hope that this game will at least be teased at E3.

P.T., resurrected

Okay, this one is a long shot. I am still heartbroken over P.T./Silent Hills’ cancellation, and I would love for Hideo Kojima and Guillermo del Toro to come out on stage and announce that they will still be making a survival horror game together. Again, this is a pipe dream, but HOW GREAT WOULD THAT BE?!


E3’s press conferences begin on Sunday, June 12 with EA at 4 p.m. EST, and end the next day with Sony at 9 p.m. EST. Visit e3expo.com for the full schedule. Follow me on Twitter @cassielovesmcr; I will be live tweeting during the press conferences.
