E3 2019 is almost a week away and my risk of carpal tunnel syndrome is already in danger of increasing. Developers are starting to announce what they'll be bringing to the show, and one of these such announcements is from the Sniper Elite developer Rebellion. There are some things we expected, but there's also a surprise: the Rebellion E3 2019 games will include "A Major Unannounced New Title".
The announcement of the Rebellion E3 2019 games was made on the company's official Twitter account:
Two games have explicitly been confirmed by Rebellion for E3 2019. The first is Evil Genius 2, a game that is (unsurprisingly) a sequel to 2004's Evil Genius. Much like Dungeon Keeper, players take on the role of a spy movie villain (think "Dr. Evil") who wants to terrorize the world and get rich doing it. You'll have to build an island base, hire henchmen and specialized assassins, and defend your lair (which may or may not feature a volcano) from curious onlookers, military assaults, and eventually secret agents.
The other Rebellion E3 2019 title is Sniper Elite VR. The Sniper Elite franchise is well-known for giving players one of the coolest long-range shooting experiences out there on the market today. After all, there aren't that many titles that let you blow off Hitler's remaining testicle in slow motion from a hundred yards distance.
What is most interesting, however, is the "major unannounced new title". A casual glance at Rebellion's list of developed games on Wikipedia shows a rather robust history of creating games. While their most recent work has firmly been focused on the Sniper Elite franchise (and rightly so, considering its popularity), their previous works include games in the Harry Potter, Delta Force, and Aliens vs. Predator franchises.
We can't say for sure what the major unannounced new title will be for the Rebellion E3 2019 showing; it may be a revival of one of their older games or it could be a completely new property straight out of left field. We'll find out sooner rather than later when E3 2019 kicks off properly later this June.
