Starting from the top, Double Fine will most certainly be discussing Psychonauts 2, which is set to be released on August 25, 2021.
Obsidian revealed The Outer Worlds 2 at the Xbox and Bethesda E3 2021 Showcase, and we may get a few more details about the development of the much-anticipated sequel. Obsidian’s Avowed may be a bit more of a longshot as nothing new was shown of the upcoming game, but we may get some behind-the-scenes details nonetheless.
Ninja Theory will undoubtedly be talking about their progress on Senua’s Saga: Hellblade II, which also wasn’t featured in the Xbox and Bethesda E3 2021 Showcase. They’ve been sharing development updates every few months, and we may get something like those this Thursday.
Rare may discuss more of Sea of Thieves’ collaboration with Pirates of the Caribbean that it unveiled at Xbox’s showcase, but fans will surely also want to hear more of Everwild. Unfortunately, recent reports indicate that Everwild was rebooted and may not be ready until 2024.
It’s important to remember that Microsoft specifically mentions this will be focused on conversations with these developers, meaning there may not be big reveals. However, surprises may be in store!
