In a thread discussing the topic on Resetera, fans have already begun theorising what could be making an appearance at Square Enix’s E3 presentation. Guesses include more info on Final Fantasy 16, Forspoken, Project Triangle Strategy, Marvel’s Avengers Black Panther War for Wakanda expansion, and maybe even some new Kingdom Hearts content for the series’ 20th anniversary next year. 

Other video game companies have also teased their plans for the June expo including Nintendo of America president Doug Bowser who has promised to “make the virtual format fun and engaging.” Ubisoft has also confirmed their attendance at E3 2021 where they plan to showcase "all the latest information about the lineup and announcements from our teams around the world."

After studying Film Studies and Creative Writing at university, I was lucky enough to land a job as an intern at Player Two PR where I helped to release a number of indie titles. I then got even luckier when I became a Trainee News Writer at GamesRadar+ before being promoted to a fully-fledged News Writer after a year and a half of training.  My expertise lies in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, cozy indies, and The Last of Us, but especially in the Kingdom Hearts series. I'm also known to write about the odd Korean drama for the Entertainment team every now and then.
