RPS Asks: What Are Your Hopes For E3 2015?

"That it go away" doesn't count

E3 2015 is a little under two weeks away which means that RPS is, between emailing, weeping and panic-vomiting, excitedly daydreaming about the games we care about: the XCOM 2s, the Fallout maybe-4s, the Deus Ex: Mankind Divideds. What might E3 bring of those games and what surprises might the show deliver? Could a new Hitman game be properly announced? Could Mirror's Edge 2 live up to my hopes at all?

If you are similarly staring out your office window, thinking about not-work, then tell us: what are you hoping for from this year's E3?

We know a fair few of what will be there already, including the aforementioned, plus the likes of the new Doom, Banner Saga 2, and so on. It's the unknown that interests me more. For example, Ubisoft yesterday announced that they'd be at the show with Assassin's Creed: Syndicate, The Division and Rainbow Six: Siege, but also "a few big surprises." I'm not sure that Watch_Dogs 2, a new Splinter Cell, or another Far Cry would really be a surprise, but perhaps they'll have a Beyond Good & Evil 2 (bet not) or some strange new UbiArt Framework thing (probs) to talk about.

Similarly, there look to be holes in the development slates of most of the major publishers. What action game are 2K working on now that Evolve is out and BioShock is dormant? What are Rockstar's many studios making now Grand Theft Auto 5 is out on all platforms? Don't EA have more cooking than the long-ago announced Mirror's Edge and Star Wars: Battlefront?

Will Microsoft even mention the PC at their traditionally XBox-focused pre-show conference?

Will Valve hahahahha?

Etc.

Tell me your dreams.
