It’s 2021 and E3 is finally back. It’s been tough for years for the iconic gaming show between the show leaking out personal information of attendees, combating COVID-19 in 2020, and publishers starting to pull out and do their own thing. Still, in spite of all that, E3 2021 is trucking along and aiming to continue to be a major event for video game news. With most of the big publishers attending, including Square Enix, E3 2021 looks to be in decent shape as we stand today. So there’s no reason not to keep the tradition going here and dive into some predictions for Square Enix’s E3 2021 conference.
There’s a lot of directions Square Enix could go this year. They have a lot of burners going on their stove. Will they just show us everything they are working on such as Final Fantasy XVI, Forspoken, Project Triangle Strategy, and even Final Fantasy VII Remake Part 2? Or will they keep it relatively conservative; just show us some new gameplay footage of Final Fantasy XVI, a new Endwalker trailer, a random mobile game, and then call it a show?
Let’s dive into some possibilities.
Naoki Yoshida Shows Up With Final Fantasy XIV: Endwalker
Square Enix E3 2021 Predictions
Final Fantasy XIV is gearing up for another major update this November with the Endwalker expansion. This expansion will conclude the Hydaelyn and Zodiark saga of Final Fantasy XIV which has persisted since the game’s original launch and will put the game on a new story track for the first time. You also get to go to the moon! It’s exciting stuff!
Final Fantasy XIV director and producer Naoki Yoshida is an extremely popular and personable figure, so it’s very likely that he’ll have the Square Enix stage to himself to allow him to talk about whatever he wants related to Endwalker and Final Fantasy XIV.
Expect a new or extended trailer, and perhaps a look of some of the new jobs, areas, or job updates in action.
