E3 is approaching and anew rumor surfaced detailing publisher 2K Games plans for this year’s E3 2021 show.

A source claims to have “seen trailers and/or promotional material” of the following titles from the company:

2K Games E3 Plans rumor

NBA 2K22

Dirk Nowitzki will be this years cover athlete. EDIT: Could be the cover of another Legend Edition, with other athletes on other editions, as some in the comments have mentioned.

Wonderlands: Codename Daffodil

It’s a Borderlands spin-off title featuring Tiny Tina. The final name could also be “Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands” (as this is the name that Gearbox already trademarked.) Seems to be the same style as all other Borderlands games with “Multiclass-Heroes” to play as. This spin-off is rumoured since last year, so I guess this isn’t really new. Reveal should be expected at E3. EDIT: Here’s the trademark for Wonderlands

New Firaxis Game: Codename CODA

New turn-based action game using Marvel property. Source described it as “XCOM with Marvel heroes”. Seems like some famous actors are voicing the characters.

Codename Volt

New action game, seems to be in really early development. Logo looks similar to the Fallout-Logo. No final name yet. Source described it as “Cthulhu meets Saints Row”. Game looked pretty unfinished in the trailer. Sadly, my source didn’t know which studio is developing this title. I think it could be Hangar13, as they had a leaked contract last year that stated that they are working on a “open-world sci-fi title with supernatural elements”.

XOM style turnbased Marvel

Out of the four games rumored, perhaps one of the most intriguing is the new “XCOM Style” turn-based action game based on Marvel Superheroes being worked on by Firaxis.

Firaxis is known for being the developer behind the Civilization series as well as some recent XCOM titles like XCOM 2: Collection, both of which have some presence on Nintendo Switch.

As for the rumor as a whole, it has received some degree of endorsement from notable industry insiders such as Jeff Grubb and Jason Schreier, suggesting that it could be legitimate
