The following upcoming releases were announced at the London MCM Expo Comic Con:

Manga Entertainment

Attack on Titan will be released, date and formats to be confirmed.

The live-action feature film version of Space Battleship Yamato is licensed for a DVD and Blu-ray release on August 19.

Fate/stay night: Unlimited Blade Works is confirmed on August 26 on DVD and Blu-Ray. There is no news on Fate/Zero.

MVM Entertainment

Heaven's Memo Pad, Shangri-La and [C] - CONTROL: The Money and Soul of Possibility have all been licensed.

MVM will also release Red Garden and Pumpkin Scissors, both formerly licensed by ADV.

(MVM tweeted that all these titles except Shangri-La would be released later this year, and would be on its site next week for pre-order.)

MVM also said that its previously announced acquisition of Is This a Zombie? would be released this year.

Daphne in the Brilliant Blue has been relicensed (also available on its site next week for pre-order).

Anime Limited

The company has licensed Gekijō-ban Tiger & Bunny -The Beginning- (the first feature film spinoff from Tiger & Bunny).

Viz Media UK

The company will release a Legend of Zelda manga, and a full Bakuman. manga box set.

Via the UK Anime News twitter feed and the Manga Entertainment twitter feed.

Correction - A previous version of this story wrongly said that Is This a Zombie? was a Manga Entertainment license. In fact, it belongs to MVM. Apologies for the mistake.
