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…
