Activision has announced the lineup of games it is bringing to E3 2018 in Los Angeles from June 12 to 14.
In addition to first public hands-on gameplay with Call of Duty: Black Ops III and Spyro Reignited Trilogy, Activision says that “fans can stay tuned for additional announcements, including Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy news, next week.”
The Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy news mentioned in the press release is likely the new “Future Tense” bonus level earlier this week.
“Activision’s E3 2018 slate is all about giving fans what they want – hands-on experiences with their most-beloved game franchises,” said Activision CMO Tim Ellis in a press release. “Call of Duty: Black Ops III delivers gritty, grounded, all-out combat in an incredibly deep multiplayer experience that players can jump into at the show; Destiny 2: Forsaken invites players to experience the frenetic pace of the all-new four-versus-four mode, Gambit; Spyro Reignited Trilogy gives fans first hands-on gameplay with the totally remastered experience; and there’s more exciting news still to be announced!”
