When Might We See Elden Ring At E3 2021?
If we’re going to see Elden Ring make an appearance at E3 2021, it’s really only going to show up at one time: The Bandai Namco E3 2021 Showcase. Thankfully, as we’re just a few days away from the start of The ESA’s event, we know when it’s due to take place.
Bandai Namco’s E3 2021 Showcase is due to take place at 14:25 PST / 17:25 EST / 22:25 BST on June 15th.
This is going to be the last major showcase of the event. Many think that this E3 scheduling isn’t an accident and the whole thing points towards Elden Ring finally being thrust into the spotlight.
We’re not sure about this signposting, but we do think it’s about time we see a little more about FromSoftware’s next title. Of course, Bandai Namco has other games to talk about and we’re expecting a number of “world premieres” from the event. We might not see Elden Ring at E3 2021, but we’re optimistic this time around.
Bandai Namco @ E3 2021
FromSoftware’s Elden Ring might be the one game everyone’s talking about in regards to Bandai Namco’s E3 2021 Showcase, but the publisher has quite a few games in the pipeline that are worth talking about.
Recently, Bandai Namco confirmed that Scarlet Nexus isn’t coming to Xbox’s Game Pass. This was rumoured for a while, but when asked by VGC, Bandai Namco said the following:
” We have no plans to bring Scarlet Nexus to Xbox Game Pass at this time and are excited for its launch on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4 and PC on June 25.”
We are anticipating another trailer for Scarlet Nexus to appear at E3 2021, at least, given its proximity to the release date. In addition to this, Supermassive Games’ third title in The Dark Pictures Anthology has recently been revealed and we’re expecting House of Ashes to feature in some capacity.
Bandai Namco is also in charge of series like Ace Combat, Soulcalibur, Dragon Ball Z, and Mobile Suit Gundam. We know fans of any of these IPs would be happy with any kind of news. For now, though, we will just have to wait until Bandai Namco’s E3 2021 showcase to find out more about what they have up their sleeve.
