Square Enix announced its line-up for E3 next week. You can read the full press release below:

Square Enix today announced its broad spectrum of next-generation and current generation console, PC and mobile game products to be unveiled during the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) 2013, June 11-13 at the Los Angeles Convention Center, Booth #1647. The company's portfolio features new games from signature franchises, a re-imagined classic along with compelling new properties.

FINAL FANTASY®, one of the most successful game franchises of all time, will have a dominant presence in the publisher's booth with both FINAL FANTASY® XIV: A Realm Reborn™, a stunning massively multiplayer online role playing game that will enable players to create their own FINAL FANTASY adventure, and LIGHTNING RETURNS™: FINAL FANTASY® XIII, the epic conclusion to the series. Square Enix will also unveil the first look at the next-generation of FINAL FANTASY.

THIEF™ is the reinvention of a classic franchise that allows players to step into the silent shoes of Garrett, a dark and solitary thief with an unrivaled set of skills. The most challenging heists, the most inaccessible loots, the best kept secrets: nothing is out of Garrett's reach. The mystery thriller Murdered: Soul Suspect™ will haunt attendees as an entirely new game property where the main character travels through both a modern day Salem, Massachusetts and a ghost world to solve his own murder. Square Enix will also introduce Deus Ex®: The Fall™, the new installment of the award winning DEUS EX series. Additional mobile and tablet games will also be at E3.

"Square Enix continues to show its global creative presence like no other game publisher with products from its internal studios around the world as well as key partners," said Yosuke Matsuda, representative director of Square Enix Holdings Co., Ltd. "As the industry continues to diversify and expand Square Enix is poised to lead that change with products showcased at this year's E3."

Along with hands-on demonstrations of many games, E3 attendees will be able to experience exclusive theater presentations for FINAL FANTASY XIV: A Realm Reborn, THIEF and Murdered: Soul Suspect.

For the audience not attending E3, Square Enix will host an innovative live online broadcast from its booth, allowing the publisher's passionate community to get a sneak peak at the new titles' content and interact with Square Enix developers. Viewers worldwide will be able to tune in for the duration of the show (June 11 to June 13, 2013) for a unique insider's perspective into Square Enix at the show. For a full schedule please visit:
