The Internet Speculates
The guessing game hit numerous media outlets across the internet. IGN believed that the video game company might speak about Shadow of the Tomb Raider at the conference. GameSpot pointed out that Square Enix could mention Left Alive, which is a part of the Front Mission universe. The video game site stated that Left Alive is between Front Mission 5 and Front Mission Evolved. Polygon hoped that Square Enix would give an update about a possible Final Fantasy VII remake.
Piecing Together The E3 Floor
While E3 has not released the floor layout of this year's conference, ResetEra forum user Rosti was able to piece together information from both E3's event planning and marketing partners and attending visitors. The E3 Conference will occupy the Los Angeles Convention Center's West, Concourse, and South Halls. Rosti predicted that both Sony and Nintendo would be in West Hall. He also believed that the South Hall could feature eSports matches and other companies such as Activision, Capcom, Epic Games, and Ubisoft.
