Square Enix is a publisher with everything to gain at E3 2014. With their last AAA game launching this June, Murdered: Soul Suspect, there isn't a whole lot else on the horizon for the company. This is why we expect Square to make a major impact at E3 2014 with games the likes of Final Fantasy 15, Kingdom Hearts 3, Sleeping Dogs: Triad Wars, Hitman and possibly something else from Tomb Raider and Deus Ex.
E3 is always a time for any company to make a major impact, and if you think about all the things Square currently has in development, we could be talking about Square Enix as the impact company of E3 2014.
Things we expect Square to reveal at or before E3 2014 are games like Sleeping Dogs: Triad Wars, the next Hitman and potential teasers from the Tomb Raider and Deus Ex franchises. United Front Games confirmed the existence of their newest iteration in the Sleeping Dogs world back in October of last year. They've promised to reveal more about the upcoming game this year and what better time than E3?
Hitman: Absolution was a critically-acclaimed hit for Square in 2012, but since then we haven't seen a console launch from the series. IO Interactive has acknowledged development for this new Hitman title, but hasn't said a whole lot either. Between Hitman and Sleeping Dogs, Square could be making an enormous impact.
Games that are less likely to show up, but would steal the show at E3 2014, are Tomb Raider and Deus Ex. It's assumed that a new Tomb Raider is in development and the same can be said about Deus Ex, but when they will receive a formal introduction is not known at this time.
E3 2014 could be where Square Enix steals the spotlight this year. They have the formidable IPs to do it and seem to be prepared to make a big splash. We'll have all of the details about E3 this year, but for more on our thoughts about Square's upcoming E3, take a look at the slide in the top left.
