Report: Crystal Dynamics & Criterion Games to Announce New Games at E3 2014
Twitch’s E3 2014 schedule told us which publishers would be announcing games during the week of E3 2014, and now GameTrailers’ June 9th E3 schedule has shown us a couple developers who will be announcing something at E3 2014.
First up, the All Access Live program from 2PM ET – 3PM ET (11AM PT – 12PM PT) will host Crystal Dynamics, who are set “to make a new game announcement exclusively on Spike — with the first footage too!” We already know Tomb Raider 2 is in development, so it’s possible they’ll be showing that off, but there’s also a chance it’s something completely new.
Secondly, GameTrailer’s description for the EA press conference at 3PM ET – 4PM ET (12PM PT – 1PM PT) says, “Live from the Shine Exposition Center, Electronic Arts CEO Andrew Wilson reveals Battlefield: Hardline and world premieres nearly a half-dozen new games, including updates on Mirror’s Edge, Dragon Age: Inquisition, a new project from Criterion Games, and much more.” Criterion was revealed to be working on a new IP for PS4 and Xbox One, so it’s likely we’ll be hearing about that next week.
Past those two announcements, here’s a couple highlights and teases found in GameTrailers’ schedule:
All Access Live: 12:00 ET – 12:30 PM ET (9 AM PT – 9:30 AM PT)
- First-ever gameplay demo of Homefront 2
- “Another surprise game demo.”
All Access Live: 4:00 – 5:00 PM ET (1 – 2 PM PT)
- A new demo for Dragon Age: Inquisition beyond what was shown in the press conference
- A “special surprise executive interview you definitely don’t want to miss.”
All Access Live: 5:00 – 6:00 PM ET (2 – 3 PM PT)
- Richard Marks from Sony Computer Entertainment America’s Magic Lab comes by to give an update on Project Morpheus and showcase brand new content.
- Demos of Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel and The Evil Within.
All Access Live: 7:00 PM – 8:00 PM ET (4 – 5 PM PT)
- “A surprise game demo we can’t announce just yet.”
All Access Live: 8:00 – 9:00 PM ET (5 – 6 PM PT)
- Jack Tretton will offer analysis prior to the PlayStation E3 2014 press conference.
- Demos for “two other surprise E3 games we can’t tell you about just yet.”
