[Metro Exodus: Complete Edition]Don’t expect TimeSplitters, Dead Island 2, Saints Row or Metro news at E3 2021, says Deep Silver

Update time:2021-07-14 19:17Tag:

  Deep Silver has put out a statement saying that it won’t be showing off any news from several of its most well known franchises at E3 this year, despite a much-hyped?Primetime stream from its parent company Koch Media scheduled to take place during the Summer Games Fest on June 11.

  The tweet on the publisher’s Twitter account reads“To give you a heads up, you won’t see?Dead Island, Saints Row, Metro?or?TimeSplitters?there (or at any other E3 2021 event). We’ll let you know when we have news to share.”

  Though the news is sure to be a blow to fans expecting something new from these series, it’s perhaps rather understandable in the case of?TimeSplitters. It was?only announced just a couple of weeks ago that Deep Silver has reformed original studio Free Radical?to work on a new TimeSplitters title, and at that time it said that development on a new game “has not yet started”.

  Of course, it’s a slightly different story for?Dead Island 2, which has been languishing in development purgatory for many, many years now — with?our last news story on the zombie sequel?a comment made during parent company THQ Nordic’s 2019 financial presentation reassuring investors it was still being worked on.

  A new?Saints Row?game was being touted by the company?a few months after the?Dead Island 2?story, although we’ve also heard no more word on that. However an-even-more-remastered?version of?Saints Row: The Third Remastered?did launch for Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation 5 just last month and?an enhanced version of?Metro Exodus Complete Edition,?is also set to launch?on those same formats in just under two weeks’ time.

  Still, whatever Koch Media & Deep Silver?do?have up their sleeves for this year’s E3, we’ll find out during the Koch Primetime Gaming Stream as part of the Summer Games Fest on Jun 11 at approximately 8pm UK time.
