Really, at this point you have to wonder what the point of having E3 at all is. We’ve already had so many official game reveals and unintended leaks in the lead up to the event, that there’s nothing left. To add to the madness, here’s another high profile leak- leading retailer Amazon has made a gaffe that may have unintentionally leaked the release dates of two of the more anticipated games this year, and certainly the biggest upcoming ones on Xbox One- Rise of the Tomb Raider, and Forza Motorsport 6.
According to Amazon, Rise of the Tomb Raider is listed for November 13, while September 18 is when we can expect Forza Motorsport 6 to launch. With Halo 5: Guardians already having an October release date, the two line up nicely, and can potentially provide Microsoft with an incredible lineup of games to fall back on this holiday season.
Amazon has since gone ahead and changed the dates to placeholder ones, but that just reflects the veracity of the earlier leaks, more than anything. I guess we will know for sure in less than a week at Microsoft’s E3.
Meanwhile, I am left wondering just exactly what is left to announce and reveal at E3 this year at this point.
