Everything At The E3 Conferences Last Year & What Happened After

Taken from my coverage of E3 2015, everything announced at the conferences and if the game came out, went into development hell, or was delayed. 

Sony
  • The Last Guardian: IGN First for this month, but otherwise we've heard very little since last year
  • Horizon: Zero Dawn: Except for the Paris Games Week demo, we've heard very little since last year. In an upcoming post, I'll be talking about why I think Horizon will be delayed until next year.
  • Hitman: The episodic series began releasing on March 11th this year. I started the first episode, liked the combat, but couldn't get past having to always be online with my crappy internet. Episode 1 has 77 on Metacritic for PS4.
  • Street Fighter V: released 16th February 2016, with 78 on Metacritic.

  • Assassin's Creed: Syndicate: released 23rd October 2015, with 76 on Metacritic
  • Final Fantasy 7 Remake: we've heard very little beyond the fact it'll be sort-of episodic, with large individual games making up the main one.

Bethesda
  • Fallout 4: released 10th November 2015, with 87 on Metacritic for PS4. I played about 15 hours and wasn't thrilled with it. I was expecting Skyrim with guns, but it didn't have quite the same heart.
  • Doom: released 13th May 2016, with 85 on Metacritic for PS4.
  • Battlecry: there have been no updates on this game since last year, and it seems to be in development hell. We'll see if Bethesda talk about this year.
  • Dishonored: Definitive Edition: released August 25th 2015, with 80 on Metacritic. I played the first couple of hours and everything felt a little weird, so I bounced and never went back. While I'd like to have another look, I don't see that happening. 
  • Dishonored 2: set to release 11th November 2016.
