Rumour Confirmed or Not Part 3

The Rumour Mill has been busy the past couple of weeks so there are still a few more posts where I will be confirming rumours or speculating them before we move on. Listing time!

Rumour: Fallout Online to be cancelled/delayed indefinitely

Confirmed or Not: This one is complicated and will involve a lot of legal wrangling. The Fallout Universe is pretty perfect to adapt for an MMO but due to confusion over who hold rights to the concept, we may as well confirm that this has been delayed indefinitely. Not cancelled, just delayed.

Rumour: Heavenly Sword 2 to be revealed at E3

Confirmed or Not:  Rumours of this much wanted sequel first surfaced a month before E3 with some claiming it would be set 10 years after the events of Heavenly Sword. With E3 now winding down, do not expect any news for this to surface. For all we know, it does not even exist.  So, Unconfirmed.

Rumour: New Super Smash Bros to be shown at E3 for ProjectCage.

Confirmed or Not: Well, there were no screenshots or in game footage but Smash Bros for the WiiU was announced. However, Nintendo have since said that they should not have revealed it as work on the title has not even begun yet. Oops.

Rumour: THQ to announce new WWE Game tonight (May 31st). Samckdown vs Raw name to be dropped.

Confirmed or Not: Look at the above image. It was announced that evening and the ‘Smackdown vs Raw’ Title has been dropped. The new game will simply be called WWE 12.

Rumour: Final Fantasy XV to be announced at E3

Confirmed or Not: This didn’t happen. At all. No mention of FFXV. However, more details have been released regarding FFXIII 2.

Rumour: Advance Wars 3DS and Metroid Prime 3DS to be announced:

Confirmed or Not: No mention of these. Where are they, Nintendo? Fans have been crying out for both titles for the 3DS. Advance Wars in 3D would look fantastic. Don’t let this series disappear off the radar. Metroid Prime will almost certainly make the jump but as of yet, no news on that either.

Rumour: Far Cry 3 to be announced at E3.

Confirmed or Not: “Did I ever tell you the definition of insanity?”

Confirmed and confirmed in such a beautiful, dark, twisted way. Honestly, after FC2 I didn’t have so much hope for this but the opening gameplay demo has already restored a lot of my faith in this series. I will definitely be buying this.

Rumour: New Quantic Dream title could be announced at E3

Confirmed or Not: This was a no show. After the critical acclaim of Heavy Rain a lot of people are waiting for Quantic Dream’s next offering and take on computer games. Some talk is that it will show war in a more emotional way. Band of Brothers: The Game? Well no, but maybe something similar.

Rumour: New Rainbow Six to be announced at E3. Will shift to East Coast.

Confirmed or Not: I was so sure on this and it’s a good thing I didn’t put money on this. It’s been 3 years since the last Rainbow Six game and that’s a pretty long break for this series. Maybe next year after Ghost recon: Future Soldier.

Rumour: Metal Gear Solid and Devil May Cry HD Collections to be announced.

Confirmed or Not:

Well, the DMC HD Collection has not be announced but in regards to MGS, well…

Rumours Confirmed or Not Part 2

Yes, a second run down in one day. So many rumour had been circulating prior to E3 that this has to be done.

Rumour: Halo CE HD remake to be announced at E3.

Confirmed or Not?  Oh yes it was. Microsoft hadn’t really been able to keep this a secret prior to E3 but it still made a big impace in the Gaming World.

Rumour: Santa Monica Studios revealing God of War 4 or New IP.

Confirmed or Not?  There was no showcase of GoW4 or a New IP. However it was announced that the PSP God of War titles are getting the HD treatment and will be avaliable as a collection on PS3 so some good news for fans of Kratos.

Rumour: Wii 2 to have HD Virtual Console

Confirmed or Not? It hasn’t been confirmed but I really can’t see Nintendo not realeasing HD versions of their games through Virtual Console on the WiiU. Both MS and Sony already do this.

Rumour:  Gears of War Exile to be shown at E3.

Confirmed or Not? Well, the much rumoured Kinect only version of a Gears of War game has so far not made an appearance and it most likely won’t. However, we know Gears of War Exile exists we just don’t know what it will be about.

Rumour:  CD Projekt to announce Witcher Titles for Consoles.

Confirmed or Not? Confirmed, well sort of. The Witcher 2 will be console exclusive to Xbox 360. 

Rumour:  Dance Central 2 to be announced at E3.

Confirmed or Not? Confirmed and in a Big Way. Over a hundred songs, excellent multiplayer and more improvements over the original best selling Kinect Game.

Rumour: Darksiders 2 to get Official Reveal at E3.

Confirmed or Not?  Darksiders got a reveal a few days before E3 kicked off. Main points of interest. You will play as Death and it will be coming to the WiiU.

Rumour: Sly 4 to be revealed at E3.

Confirmed or Not?  CONFIRMED. Such an awesome series and I cannot wait for it when Sly 4 releases next year.

Rumour: Last Story to Get Western Release on Wii

Confirmed or Not? Not yet but it is almost certainly to hit the US and Europe some point soon. However, if it will be for Wii or updated for WiiU. no one knows.

Rumour: Syphon Filter 4 to be revealed by Sony at E3:

Confirmed or Not? Unconfirmed I’m afraid though since there was a bit of a leak last week regarding Syphon Filter 4, I will be bet that it is revealed soon.
