Missing in action: 9 games that were conspicuously absent from E3

2 of 11

The Last Of Us 2

I don't feel out of line in saying this must have been the most anticipated game that everyone expected to make an E3 appearance this year. Several sites even went so far as to announce news that the game would be officially confirmed at the expo when some info from Naughty Dog supposedly “leaked.”

Yet for all the hype and certainty, the follow-up to this emotionally devastating post-apocalyptic game was nowhere to be found. Fans were particularly on board at this point in time, with an Easter egg in Uncharted 4 indicating a Last Of Us 2 should be inbound any time now.

Whether a prequel, sequel, or something else entirely, its safe to say fans want to see this made, and they want it sooner rather than later.

    I was really hoping for Shadow of Mordor or a new Metroid. Too bad neither showed. Still, we got some good -looking games coming up.

    I'm expecting Shadow of Mordor to be shown at GamesCom.

    And why did anyone think a R* game would be at E3? They never are... RDR2 (or any other R* game) was expected not to be at E3.

    So, so looking forward to a new Shadow Of Mordor. I don't recall if Rockstar was presenting it or if it was Sony/Microsoft announcing it coming to the current gen consoles, but I know for fact GTA 5 has been covered at past E3s, so Red Dead certainly isn't outside the ream of possibilities.

    There was a GTA V trailer released around E3, but not at E3 it's self.
