Rage 2 is real, and it looks like Sunset Overdrive and Mad Max had a baby. Or, like, if Borderlands was good. Apparently gameplay is coming tomorrow, but for now enjoy this nonsense. It comes to us from Bethesda and Avalanche Studios (the Just Cause duders):

 

 

Also there's a new rumour going around that Retro Studios, aka those guys what made Metroid Prime and have been dead silent for the last four years or so, have been working on a Star Fox Racing game named Star Fox Grand Prix. It started with a the darkest nether region of the Internet which shall not be named leak, which would otherwise sink a rumour before it went anywhere, only this time a couple of Eurogamer editors say that this matches up with behind-the-scenes things that have been a'stirrin'.

EDIT - Rage 2's lookin' pretty good:

BREAKING NEWS! MEGATONS!

 

Sony appears to be doing a Nintendo Direct for E3 this year, as in a pre-recorded show with no live stage presence. The link goes to a podcast which nobody's going to listen to, so here's a synopsis I stole from Resetera:

 

Monday, June 11th 2018, details coming soon
Exclusive looks and deep dives on 4 upcoming Sony World Wide Studios titles
Death Stranding
Ghosts of Tsushima
Spider-Man
The Last of Us Part II
Highlight on indies
3rd party publishers (as usual)
No hardware announcements at E3 2018 (PS5 reference?)

 

So I guess it's just the usual thing, only pre-recorded and without the VR rubbish bogging things down. And there's still a spot for third party stuff, so DMCV is still definitely happening. It's a shame we won't get to hear the screams and explosions of hype in the crowd when DMCV overshadows everything else there, but it should be fine, I spose.
 
BUT WAIT, THERE ARE MORE MEGATONS AND THEY MIGHT INVOLVE DMCV!

Now, we don't know if those 'action/adventure' listings are three different games or one multiplatform thing, and we don't know if that's the sum total of everything Capcom's going to show. For all we know they're just demo booths for the E3 show floor for Monster Hunter World or whatevs. BUUUUUUT, what if Microsoft has thrown some buckets of money around backstage and DMCV is actually a Microsoft exclusive? It'd be the biggest bombshell since DMC4 went multiplatform, and an excellent excuse for me to buy one of them there Xbox One Xes.
 
In FURTHER MEGATON NEWS!
 
Walmart Canada's website has accidentally leaked a whole slew of upcoming E3 announcements, including Splinter Cell, Just Cause 4 and, bizarrely, Rage 2:

#Bethesda Showcase is in one month. I’m starting to get excited. We have a lot to show you this year. Might be our longest E3 Showcase ever? Not sure, but it’s packed. 

 

You guys, can you smell it? The E3 in the air? It's right around the corner!

Here it is, boyeeeeeez, everyone's favourite moment of the year: Capcom's Business Divisional Strategies and Projections in FY2018! Now, I know you're all going to want to read it in full when you have the time, but for now we're going to focus on this page here:

See that '2019 Plan' in the rightmost column? Where they're expecting 7.4 million combined sales from two Major Titles to be released before May 2019? There it is, my friends. You know what that means. I know what that means. We all know what that means.

 

It means Devil. May. Cry. Five.

 

That is all for today.

If you aren't already holding onto your butts, then FIND THOSE BAD BOYS AND GET A GOOD GRIP, because Square Enix has just announced they're holding their own special E3 conference again this year!

Those of you playing along at home will no doubt remember that the last time Square did this they ended up announcing Nier Automata out of the blue. Or, to put it another way, Square has announced a new Nier game at 100% of their past E3 conferences. What I'm saying is that Ni3R is confirmed. It's simple mathematics, really.
