News regarding reveals at E3 2021 are coming in hot and fast, with lots of information confirming what will be shown or even leaks for potential reveals popping up everywhere online. The latest piece of news comes from Deep Silver, who instead of confirming what will be shown at E3 instead confirmed what they won’t be in order to keep expectations in check.

In some recent tweets, Deep Silver said that we shouldn’t expect any news regarding Dead Island 2, Saints Row 5, Metro 4, or even the recently announced Timesplitters 4 game at E3 2021 or any of the other Summer Games showcases around E3.

Our parent company @KochMedia_HQ is making an announcement as part of #SummerGamesFest on June 11th,” Publisher Deep Silver said on Twitter. “To give you a head’s up, you won’t see Dead Island, Saints Row, Metro or TimeSplitters there (or at any other E3 2021 event). We’ll let you know when we have news to share.

That may be disappointing news for some who were expecting some big reveals this year since last year’s E3 2020 was cancelled due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, and multiple games were delayed also due to the pandemic. Though parent company Koch Media is making an announcement on June 11th and so some big reveals could still come out of it right?

You can tune into the Koch Media event on June 11th at 12pm PDT (3pm ET / 8pm BST).

What do you think? Are you excited for E3 2021? Were you hoping to see any of these game reveals at E3 2021? If only one of them was officially revealed then which one would you be more interested in? Let us know!

If only 1 was revealed at E3 2021 which one would you rather see?

I find it strange that Dead Island 2 even still exists while dying light i feel has surpassed them in the relevancy and gameplay department. Techland is the studio that made the original dead island and now is making the dying light 2. They split from Deep silver do to creative differences: "Even with Dead Island there were a lot of moments where we would disagree on the creative vision of the project, so this might have been one of the factors." -Maciej Binkowski dev.

dead island 2 was our only chance to get a dead rising-like first person coop zombie experience, dying light is its own thing with a boring story and uncool weapons

I mean i couldn´t tell you the story of either of their games but dying light 2 seems to have put big focus on it. While dead island 2 has been radio silent for so long.
