Because it not big enough that anyone would be surprised by it.... Its not a new franchise and its very popular. Its safe to assume even before it was shown that they were making a new one sooner or later.
Since Sony should have been the ones that "let" them announce it...it must mean they have enough cool stuff at E3...Sony...WHAT ARE YOU HIDING?!?!? XD --- "There Is Nothing Either Good Or Bad, But Thinking Makes It So"
You realize we have only seen the multiplayer? I bet the single player is going to look amazingly good and at E3 it'll be a big reveal --- I am the son and the heir, Of a shyness that is criminally vulgar
What is the logic behind not saving such a big announcement as a new GoW on the PS3 for E3 to surprise people during the press conference?
A) Nothing is ever a “surprise” at E3 anymore. Everyone always hears whispers about a game so it’s never a surprise. The major magazines heard whispers about this game five months ago.
B) A big strength of E3 is that gamers go there and can SAMPLE the game. They get the announcement out of the way and then they can have a demo for gamers to play and hype up the game. You can’t surprise people if they’re setting up huge God of War booths and game zones prior to the event.
they really just couldnt save that to blow people away come E3?
Do you work for E3 or something? Who cares about when they announce it?
If they announce a new Legacy of Kain game this year, that'll make E3 history in my book.
I doubt that many folks will care. At least not enough to “make E3 history” which has featured people crying over a Zelda trailer before.
