Square Enix to air two new trailers at Spike VGX

Monday, 2nd December 2013 21:46 GMT By Brenna Hillier

Square Enix will bring at least two new trailers to Spike VGX this month; the publisher has quite an interesting selection of upcoming titles to pick from, too.

The news comes via Karl Stewart, one-time Tomb Raider brand manager and now marketing VP of Square Enix Europe and North America, sharing the hype on Twitter.

“Just reviewed the final cuts of both trailers we’re showing at next Saturdays Spike TV VGX. Amazing stuff from the teams as ever. Cant wait,” he said.

A quick survey of Square Enix’s western studios turns up plenty of possibilities. Eidos Montreal is working on Thief; Crystal Dynamics has a new Tomb Raider in the works; and IO Interactive is devoted to Hitman. Final Fantasy 13: Lightning Returns is another possibility, although traditionally VGX tends to show off games further from release. On top of all that, Square Enix almost certainly has a bunch of games in the works we know nothing about as yet.

Spike VGX 2013 takes place on December 7. We’re expecting to see big surprises from Titanfall and our first proper look at Quantum Break gameplay. There’s a very, very slim chance we’ll see Fallout 4, too; pretty sure this one is a fake.

    @2 Well there’s one down, is there any chance of it being Legacy of Kain?

    I thought it was already a given that one of the trailers was going to be the new “Tomb Raider” “sequel.” Probably to coincide with one of those useless Spike “which heavily marketed game do we like or want to promote the most” awards. If only it could be the real Lara Croft returning as she should.

    I also wouldn’t be surprised if it turns out to be a fourth FF13 game that’s also focused on perving out about Lightning even more. It’d be nice if it was for the only Squeenix game coming up that looks worth the time, FF15, but chances are good it’ll be a Western game since we’re talking a Western awards show.

    Presumably “Thief” and “Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition.”

    Dammit Square Enix We need a Horror game , all these recent generations are lack for Survival horror games on consoles so why don’t you revive some of your horror titles and make it happen , Like PE for example

    Thief and most likely that Nosgoth MOBA knock off or Murdered: SS. It will be stuff that we already know about.

    It won’t be Final Fantasy 15 guys, c’mon. Most likely Thief and Tomb Raider 1 for next-gen.

    “Crystal Dynamics has a new Tomb Raider in the works”

    I’m very happy about this. I’m playing through the reboot now and must say I’m very impressed. Superb gameplay and looks gorgeous. It reminds me of TLOU for some reason though the story’s not so powerful…

    I’m definitely up for a sequel on PS4!

    @4: Serious question: could you be any more of a nob-jockey?
