The initial announcements of Elden Ring and Hellblade II sparked considerable interest, but it appears they may not be announced at E3 this year. Disclaimer – This information has not been verified, therefore this is not factual. Both games have faced rumors circulating involving release dates and leaked information. Venturebeat’s Jeff Grubb is now also saying that the game won’t be showing up at E3 along with Hellblade II.
The action-adventure role-playing game, Elden Ring, developed by the From Software studio was first announced in 2019. While many anticipated the developer to announce a release date back in April, nothing ever came which resulted in players thinking the game was getting canceled. Fortunately, those rumors turned out to be false. However, developers remain tight-lipped about potential release dates. Could their silence be a marketing tactic to hype up the game even more? Much of the excitement surrounding the game involves Game of Thrones novelist, George R. R. Martin’s ties to the project as a worldbuilder.
Hellblade II, the highly anticipated sequel to Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice was another title announced in 2019 that fans have been patiently waiting for. Fans were treated to a mysterious trailer at the Game Awards two years ago. In the meantime, there hasn’t been much in terms of official news. Because of this, many speculate the game will not appear at this year’s E3 event.
With these two and many other titles rumored not to be making appearances at this year’s E3 event, fans are left wondering if or when they will know more about these two anticipated games. Currently, E3 2021 is Scheduled for June 12 As a Digital-Only Event. The event will be free to attend online and feature game announcements, release dates, and other important gaming news. Game delays are always a disappointment, but many gamers remain hopeful about other E3 announcements like Starfield and Fable.
