No schedule for streams exists yet as far as I can tell but will update when that is the case :monster:

Sony once again not there as has been the case since after 2018, no EA either.

I'm mostly excited at the prospect of more FFXVI news from Square Enix tbh.

If the leaks are anything to go by, FF and Forspoken will be there. They also say in their blog post their lineup is mostly under wraps.

Rest assured we have plenty that will definitely make you go ‘ooh' and possibly even ‘ahh’, but we’re going to keep the line-up mostly under wraps for now. After all, we don’t want to ruin the fun.
With that in mind, here’s a tantalizingly vague list at what you can expect to see:

  • The world premiere of a new game from Eidos-Montréal
  • An exciting update on BABYLON’S FALL
  • New details about Marvel’s Avengers Expansion: Black Panther- War for Wakanda and updates on upcoming in-game events
  • A deep dive on Life is Strange: True Colors and a first look at Life is Strange: Remastered Collection

Guess that’s indicative that they are aware that their Japan based titles in development generate more hype than their SE Europe and NA titles?

Also, schedule of stuff can be found here: https://www.gamesradar.com/uk/e3-2021-schedule/

Includes a bunch of not-E3 like Geoff Keighley's Summer Game Fest. I think pretty much everything is announced now. Maybe I'll get off my lazy arse and do a timezone graphic for everything.
Thanks! So one week and two hours from now is S-E’s showcase. I’ll make sure to tune in :)

There's a thread on ResetEra that's an absolute rollercoaster, where someone seemingly confirmed "don't expect any big FF stuff at Square Enix's showcase on Sunday" which is completely at odds with the leaks.

Thursday is the summer games fest thingie stream, both Sony and Square Enix are at that. Then SE have their thing on Sunday. We know big FF stuff is coming this month but it seems like SE might have slapped themselves again by giving their trailer reveals to other publishers. Aiyaaaaaaa

Yeah one of the insider people on Reset said something along the lines of FF news coming this month, even if it's not at Square Enix' event.
I'll still tune in for Life is Strange I guess but...come on, have FFXVI at your own event at least lol

Sonic game 2022(aka: Sonic Rangers if the accidental reveal is true or it's just a code name-I think it's true 'cause it makes sense) might have a slight change of getting a bit of a more reveal at this year's E3, but Prince of Persia Sands of Remake misses out, since Ubisoft just announced today it's been delayed now for an entire year, so that game's coming out next year too.
