Unlike a handful of other big publishers, the folks at Deep Silver are still planning to have a big presence at E3 2016, recently revealing that they will make a major announcement at this year's show.
You'll likely know Deep Silver from a trio of big name series, including the zombie slay-a-thon, Dead Island; the post-apocalyptic survival shooter, Metro; as well as the tongue-in-cheek third person action series Saints Row.
In a recent interview with MCV, Deep Silver CEO Klemens Kundratitz explained that they plan on being at this year's E3 conference in a big way, with a “major announcement” planned for the show. Kundratitz goes on to say that Deep Silver has “a lot of games in the pipeline” and that they are “very much looking forward to E3.”
And the timing couldn't be better. It's been quite a while since Deep Silver unleashed a hit game, and all three of those series mentioned above are due for a sequel.
Dead Island 2 was shown off a couple of years ago in the form of a catchy trailer and eyes-on gameplay on the show floor. The game was clearly pretty deep into development, but apparently there were a few too many hitches and the project got delayed. Deep Silver recently announced that the team at Sumo Digital is plugging away on Dead Island 2 now, so that's good news for folks who like to dispatch zombies in clever fashion. Honestly, that Dead Island 2 jogging trailer was one of my favorites from the show, so here's your chance to relive it now.
As for Metro, the most recent game in the series, Last Light launched nearly three years ago. We haven't heard word one about a possible sequel so, again, this would be good timing to make a big reveal.
And then there's the beloved Saints Row series, which also had its most recent entry, Saints Row IV, arrive in 2013. If I had to put my money on anything, it would be a return trip to this series that takes all of the open-world antics of a series like Grand Theft Auto and injects it with a fantastic sense of humor and joy around every corner.
We're eager to find out what Deep Silver has up its sleeve, but it looks like we'll have to wait just a little bit longer. E3 2016 doesn't kick off until early June, so that means you've got about three months to muscle through before we hear any news. As for you readers, what are you hoping to hear from the publisher? Would you prefer news on a sequel for one of these games, or perhaps something new entirely? Let us know in the comments below.
