Last year during the Pandemic or as I refer to it, the Year From Hell, E3 was postponed. In its place, we got Geoff Keighley’s Summer Games Fest as well as a smorgasbord of independent shows like the Kinda Funny Games Showcase, the Devolver Digital Showcase, and more. While we will most likely still be getting that again this year it was shown that E3 wasn’t really necessary in regards to indie games and AAA games and all the games that fall in-between. Like last year, everything will be digital in terms of what will be presented and how things will be presented. So, all of us here at VGUtv wanted to talk about our predictions for what we want to see at E3.

More Information on the rumored Mandalorian game
If you have heard me on an episode of Player’s Club or WiN you will know that I am a Star Wars mega-fan and have been since the age of 5 when I first saw The Phantom Menace in 1999. I have played seemingly every Star Wars game going back to 2001. But enough of that. According to a now-deleted tweet from a co-founder of Xbox Era “You’ll notice…there’s a Mandalorian Funko on Phil’s shelf. Yes. Someone is making a Mandalorian game. Not sure who yet.” This was after the GamesBeat Summit 2021 video where Xbox head Phil Spencer, who is notorious for having easter eggs in his videos for things that have yet to be revealed.
While I am not sure which developer in the Xbox Family would be making this game I want to put my eggs in the baskets of either Obsidian, inXile, or a ZeniMax developer. While Obsidian can be taken off the table as they have a ton of games in the works currently, there is an unannounced game they are working on. Meanwhile, inXile is working on a first-person RPG which could very well be said Mandalorian game. To me, ZeniMax is the longshot as their studios are busy with other projects such as Fallout 76, Starfield, DeathLoop, and so on and so forth.
As of now everything is in the hands of the Maker. With the Xbox and Bethesda showcase happening on June 13th so only time will tell from now on.
