THQ Nordic are set to reveal a completely unannounced title based on one of the established brands of the esteemed Publisher. What could this be? Darksiders? That would certainly fit the bill of being an established game series. We will have to wait and see.
Square Enix are set to make the first public reveal of the Life is Strange 2 trailer. This is the exciting reveal we were talking about. Years ago, Life is Strange had us all awe-struck at its wonderful heart-wrenching story. We can not wait for the sequel.
Deep Silver are set to make a new announcement that we know nothing of as of yet. Given that THQ Nordic acquired Deep Silver in February 2018, a separate release could be interesting.
Bandai Namco are set to reveal a new game from a European Developer. Given the vast variety of games under Bandai Namco. This could be anything.
