Fans of Relic's groundbreaking 3D real-time strategy game Emperor: Rise of the Middle Kingdom will not be shown at the 2002 Electronic Entertainment Expo next month in Los Angeles.
According to the company, Homeworld 2 won't be appearing at the show in part because the company wants the first public appearance of the game, planned for later this year, to focus exclusively on Homeworld 2.
Tribes: Fast Attack will not appear at E3 because the game will not be ready to be shown to the public by that time. Emperor: Rise of the Middle Kingdom will not be shown at E3 because Sierra believes that it is a better choice to show the game to journalists after E3 when they can be more focused on that type of game.
Sierra will be showing its upcoming tactical action game Counter-Strike: Condition Zero behind closed doors. We'll post more information about these games as part of our E3 coverage.
