E3 2021: all confirmed games and companies
The main video game developers and publishers like Microsoft, Nintendo or Ubisoft have confirmed some of the games they will be showcasing at E3 2021. Check the complete list.
E3 2021 is returning to showcase what all video games fans are waiting for: new information and reveals on upcoming games. After its cancelation in 2020, the main publishers and developers are attending to show the titles and products they have been working on. During the four days of the convention, video games, as expected, will be the stars of the event. Some of the participating organizations have already confirmed which titles they will be presenting while others remain cryptic. Some hints have been sighted through artworks or ambiguous statements.

Surprises are part of E3's essence. Gaming companies have always loved to play with fans hiding some of the surprises they have prepared (although leaks are frequent weeks and days before the event occurs). Nothing like an unexpected trailer to raise the hype between fans. Additionally, they also tend to confirm which projects (usually expectable ones) users might be watching these days.
By way of an example, Ubisoft has already stated what titles it will be showcasing: Far Cry 6, Riders Republic, or Rainbow Six Extraction, among others, while Prince of Persia: Sands of Time Remake won't be shown after being delayed until 2022. A highly anticipated name like Beyond Good & Evil 2 hasn't been mentioned. It means it isn't confirmed and might be one of Ubisoft's surprises.
Other companies like Microsoft, which is holding a showcase focus on Xbox and Bethesda games, hinted some titles like Starfield (or something similar in the first teaser showed) on the artwork shared in its social media account. Yet, the only confirmed one is Halo Infinite, the long-awaited flagship for its Series X and Series S consoles. Anyway, the Redmond-based organization promised "World Premieres" and everybody knows what that means.
Nintendo did not announce a single game in its E3 confirmation message that it would be attending. Albeit, the Japanese not only promised 40 minutes of exclusive information on games coming in 2021 but also on some coming in 2022.
Warner Bros Games was one of the biggest names for the convention since it holds a line-up of appealing upcoming games like Hogwarts Legacy or Gotham Knights, but finally, the company will be just showcasing Back 4 Blood, a long-anticipated title due to its Left 4 Dead franchise vibes.
Square Enix will be attending once again with an interesting catalog. It has confirmed the showcasing of Babylon's Fall y Life is Strange: True Colors as well as a new World Premier game developed by Eidos Montreal. Another confirmed game that will be in the spotlight is Marvel's Avengers. Final Fantasy (neither the XVI installment nor the VII Remake Part 2) or Forspoken (the previously called Project Athia) have been mentioned but it doesn't mean they won't be there. There can always be surprises...
Developers and publishers like Capcom, Bandai Namco, Take Two, and Gearbox Entertainment haven't revealed anything yet.
