Xbox will have 90 minutes to showcase the games it has been working on for its E3 2021 presentation. The conference will be held on June 13 at 10am PT/ 1pm ET. Anticipation is rising as Xbox will have a lot to reveal.
But will Xbox show any sports games at this year’s E3?
What Can We Expect From Xbox?
Given the circumstance, it would be difficult to deny that they would. Sony is skipping this year, so there will be no direct competition. In past E3 showcases, Xbox’s main sports title that it showcases is Forza. Xbox showed Forza-related content in four of its last five showcases since E3 2016. We should fully expect another addition to the Forza Motorsport series as Xbox has already teased a new entry.
With Sony’s absence from E3, studios may be more inclined to show their sports games on the Xbox showcase. Studios like EA and Take-Two Interactive strive for high-fidelity graphics and gameplay. This year’s E3 will finally give us a chance to see what these studios can do with the power of next-gen consoles. EA already announced the return of beloved franchises like Skate and NCAA Football. We can expect the yearly reveal of NBA 2K and the return of WWE 2K as well.
This Will Be a Little Different
E3 2020 was canceled because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Xbox, along with many of the studios that will be present during E3, will have its showcase virtually. Xbox has been buying up plenty of studios in the past two years, and there has been no mention of what some of these studios have been working on.
E3 2021 is only a week away and the anticipation is already high. It is possible that Xbox will showcase at least one sports title. However, we will just have to wait until June 13 for the big reveal.
