We’re hoping that Sony’s E3 conference in 2018 will be one of the best ever. There is a lot we already know about the upcoming event, but there’s still a lot that we’re holding our breath for.
Here’s a look at the 10 sequels that could make Sony’s E3 2018 the best conference ever. Some of these games have already been confirmed, whilst others are sitting on the list due to recent rumors and speculation.
The Last Of Us Part 2
The Last Of Us Part 2 is going to make a big impact on Sony’s E3 conference this year. It has been confirmed that there will be a big showing for The Last Of Us Part 2 and many are expecting gameplay footage.
A hands-on gameplay session on the main Sony conference stage is what we’re hoping for and if rumors are correct, it’s what we’ll be getting. Hopefully, we’ll also get a full release date.
The Crew 2
We have seen a lot about The Crew 2 already, but we wouldn’t complain if we were shown more.
The Crew 2 is already shaping up to look like an incredibly fun gameplay experience. The Crew 2 isn’t an exclusive Sony game, but we have a feeling it might show up during the Sony E3 conference.
Red Dead Redemption 2
Red Dead Redemption 2 is launching later this year and we are hoping we’ll finally see some gameplay footage during E3 2018.
Once again, Red Dead Redemption 2 isn’t a PS4 exclusive, but in the past 2K and Rockstar have let Sony host new gameplay reveals, so we wouldn’t be surprised if it shows up during the Sony conference.
With the release date for Red Dead Redemption 2 being so close, we’re hoping we’ll get at least something new to learn about the game during E3, even if it isn’t gameplay.
Potential Bloodborne Sequel
According to rumors, a new game by From Software is in the works. It’s apparently called Shadows Die Twice and many people are considering it the spiritual successor to Bloodborne.
Shadows Die Twice might not necessarily be a direct sequel, but it may expand upon the Bloodborne universe and it is most likely going to land as a PS4 exclusive game.
Unfortunately, we know very little about Shadows Die Twice so far and it is likely that it’s still very early on in development. Just a small nudge or reveal trailer at E3 2018 would be enough to get us excited.
We’d be asking a little too much to ask for gameplay at this point, but if we’re lucky we might get some kind of announcement.
The chance for Borderlands 3 being showcased at E3 is small, and the chance for Sony to showcase the game during their own conference is even smaller but we’re still hoping it might just pop up.
We know that a new Borderlands game is in the works and it’s expected to be the biggest game yet in terms of overall scale. We’re expecting an absolute behemoth of an RPG game and we really want to learn more about it as soon as possible.
Once again, the likelihood of a Borderlands 3 showing at E3 this year is unlikely, but we can hope, right?
This is another unlikely showing at Sony’s E3 conference, but it could happen. If Skate 4 is shown during E3, it’s more likely that EA will want to show the game themselves.
In the past, we mentioned that Skate 4 might be in development, and hints from previous developers would suggest it is true.
Despite of the signs pointing towards the potential for a Skate sequel, EA keeps denying it. EA has mentioned recently that the game isn’t in development at all.
We’ve been given a lot of mixed signals, so we don’t know what’s going on behind the scenes. However, I’m sure I’m not the only one that would be very, very happy if Skate 4 was announced at E3 2018.
Shadow Of The Colossus 2
The recent Shadow Of The Colossus remake for the PS4 was critically acclaimed. The game kept enough from the original to be a nostalgic experience for old fans of the game, but it refreshed it with new visuals to make it appealing to those that hadn’t yet played the game.
After playing the Shadow Of The Colossus remake, it left me wondering. Will there ever be a Shadow Of the Colossus 2? I’d absolutely love there to be.
If Sony ever has plans to commission a sequel to Shadow Of The Colossus, the best time to announce it would be during their E3 2018 conference. Interest for the franchise is at an all-time high thanks to the recent remake, so come on Sony, why not treat us?
Final Fantasy VII Remake
We know that a Final Fantasy VII remake is coming, but we’re just not sure when. It’s been three years since the initial announcement from Square Enix and now we’re waiting for more news from Sony.
There are rumors circulating that suggest the Final Fantasy VII remake will get showcased during Sony’s E3 2018 conference. I’d be very happy to see that happen.
Crash Bandicoot Sequel
The Crash Bandicoot N.Sane Trilogy saw so much love that it convinced Sony to push Naughty Dog to release future Crash Bandicoot games and ports.
We don’t know how far along the line new Crash Bandicoot games are, but we’d happily take a port from older games. How about a Crash Team Racing or Crash Bash remake?
Horizon Zero Dawn 2
With the incredible success that Horizon Zero Dawn had, it’s safe to say that a sequel is on the cards. It will be quite some time before Horizon Zero Dawn 2 makes it to the shelves, but we still haven’t heard an announcement about it yet.
Just a small reveal trailer for Horizon Zero Dawn 2 during Sony’s E3 2018 conference would be the icing on the cake. I’m sure a lot of PS4 owners would get very excited if a sequel was announced.
Even if Horizon Zero Dawn 2 does get announced at E3, it’s likely we’ll be waiting till 2020 or 2021 before the game makes it into the public.
What are your thoughts? If you could dream up any sequel from any franchise in the world, what would you choose?
