It was recently confirmed that Square Enix will focus on revealing new games individually this summer, as opposed to collecting them for a single showcase.
After the cancellation of E3 2020, a variety of independent showcases arranged by developers and publishers have cropped up to fill the void left in the wake of an E3-less summer. For a handy list of where to watch various shows arranged to compensate for the cancellation of E3 this year, check out where to watch Summer Game Fest, PlayStation reveals, and more.
Guerrilla Collective is another prime example – it’s a new initiative organized by Guerrilla Games, during which a range of indie publishers will come together to highlight the projects they’re currently working on. Apparently, Larian Studios, the developer of Divinity: Original Sin and Baldur’s Gate 3, will make more than one Divinity announcement at Guerrilla Collective this June. Ubisoft also announced its own digital event scheduled to take place in July.
Square Enix has decided to go in a totally different direction. As opposed to organizing a single showcase featuring information on all of the titles it currently has in development, Square Enix will stick to a more conventional line of game reveals starting this summer. Check out the tweet below.
Square Enix said it won't hold online event to unveil this FY's new releases around E3's timing because making assets ready for such show has become difficult due to Covid-19. Instead, it will announce new titles on individual basis.
