Sorry, however Lifeless Island 2 (and Saints Row, and Timesplitters) will not be proven at E3
When Koch Media introduced that will probably be holding a Summer season Recreation Fest livestream subsequent week, all types of prospects introduced themselves. Possibly some phrase on Lifeless Island 2, which we have been ready on for years with nothing to carry our consideration however repeated assurances that it is nonetheless taking place? Or maybe a take a look at the subsequent Saints Row? Timesplitters? An extended shot, certain, however given the very latest timing of the announcement, not solely out of the realm of chance.
Alas, plainly none of that’s going to occur. In a tweet posted earlier at present, Deep Silver dialed expectations manner down.
Our mum or dad firm @KochMedia_HQ is making an announcement as a part of #SummerGamesFest on June eleventh. To provide you a head’s up, you received’t see Lifeless Island, Saints Row, Metro or TimeSplitters there (or at another E3 2021 occasion). We’ll let you realize when we have now information to share.June 4, 2021

(Metro was my private faint hope for the present, so think about me personally dissatisfied.)
That also leaves Payday 3, which Koch is publishing, however there is probably not an excessive amount of to see from that simply but—the final time we checked, it wasn’t slated to be out till someday in 2023. New video games from Koch-owned developer Flying Wild Hog, Shadow Warrior 3 and Evil West, are additionally prospects, and as a whole shot in the dead of night possibly we’ll hear about one thing new from Kingdom Come: Deliverance developer Warhorse Studios.
Koch nonetheless has loads of arrows in its quiver, simply not essentially those we have been most hoping to have shot at us. Nonetheless, it is most likely a wise transfer to get this on the market now: It is higher to maintain expectations low and drop just a few surprises than to come back in with a full head of hype and nothing to ship.
