E3 Schedule 2019: Press Conference Dates and Times

The E3 event itself takes place between Tuesday, June 11th and Thursday, June 13th at the Los Angeles Convention Center. However the excitement always kicks off before the show floor opens.

Are PlayStation Going to Be At E3?

PlayStation surprised everyone late last year by announcing that they would not be attending E3 in any form — not only will the company not have a conference, they will not be demoing any content on the show floor either.

Are EA Going to Be At E3?

Yes and no. The EA Play event is no longer an official part of the E3 schedule, and the company are not doing a live conference this year, opting instead for a series of streams at as-yet-undisclosed times. However there is still going to be an EA Play event at the Hollywood Palladium just down the road, taking place throughout Saturday, June 8th . The Palladium event will have hands-on demonstrations and “exclusive content” from the Creator’s Cave, a space at the Palladium reserved for prominent streamers and influencers.

Confirmed Games and Consoles

So far there haven’t been many confirmed games or consoles ahead of the conferences, which is to be expected — especially with Xbox holding so many secrets. The only confirmed title for Xbox so far is Halo: Infinite.

Monster Hunter: World’s confirmed presence is almost certainly in reference to the upcoming Iceborne expansion.

Elsewhere, EA are bringing their variously beleaguered live service titles Anthem, Apex Legends and Battlefield V to the show, but their big selling point will likely be Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order.

Romero Games and Paradox Interactive have confirmed that they are bringing an unannounced IP to E3 this year — but we do not know any details about what it is, or which stage they will be bringing it to.

*Borderlands 3 and Cyberpunk 2077’s presence were both confirmed by the brands’ official Twitter accounts, but they may be attached to a conference stage — almost certainly Xbox.

Rumoured Games and Consoles

Already there are plenty of rumours as to what might make an appearance at E3 2019. Sure bets include FIFA 20 and Madden NFL 20, given that hell hasn’t frozen over — plus EA have confirmed multiple EA Sports announcements for EA PLAY.

Xbox will almost certainly unveil their Scarlett and Anaconda consoles, and likely give them actual names. Gears 5 will likely take up a chunk of the show too, as it did last year. We will probably hear more about xCloud bringing Live to multiple devices, and we might even see more of the Minecraft AR game just recently teased at Build 2019. Elsewhere we are hoping to put some game titles to Microsoft’s many studio acquisitions from last year, especially fan favourites Ninja Theory, Obsidian and inXile. We might even see something from the ever-expanding super-studio The Initiative. More specifically, we expect to see more from Ori and the Will of the Wisps and Battletoads, both teased last year.

Elsewhere, Square Enix will hopefully finally show us their Avengers project before it feels any more stale, seeing as the Cinematic Universe has already wrapped its decade-long Avengers arc. It’s highly likely that they will show more of the Final Fantasy VII remake teased in the latest PlayStation State of Play too.

Ubisoft will surely make a big deal about Ghost Recon: Breakpoint, seeing as they just revealed it. Beyond Good and Evil 2 and Skull & Bones will both need another showing to keep people interested. Bethesda might dare to announce some new content for its abysmally received Fallout 76, and while we almost certainly won’t hear anything about The Elder Scrolls VI and possibly not even Starfield, we should at least get an update on Wolfenstein Youngblood. Given their friendly relationship with Xbox, there’s an outside possibility that recent mobile title The Elder Scrolls: Blades will get achievement support.

Oh, and Nintendo will probably focus on Pokémon Sword & Shield – while the company may spend some time on games with Xbox cross-play, we’re going to place a safe bet that this will not be among them…

*Ancestors was exclusively revealed by PlayStation in the past, but it’s not an exclusive game. There’s a chance we’ll hear more from Xbox or just on the show floor.
**The Hellblade-esque Darkborn has been through the wringer trying to find a publisher. There’s a chance Xbox could nab it.
***Come on. You know it will be there somewhere.

That’s everything we know so far. We’ll keep this updated with the latest news, rumoured titles and schedule information.

Guess we got to start planning the E3 episode of the ReaperCast!

Seems like nothing major going on. I’ll be checking it Halo for sure.

Take a Sneak Peak at Ubisoft’s E3 2019 Lineup

We’re getting to the point where hype starts to build for the upcoming E3 2019 show. While some developers and publishers have gone into lockdown, others are keen to tease their wares. Ubisoft is one of the latter category of publishers. They’ll be arriving on stage at 1PM PT on June 10th, and they’ll be bringing a variety of new and old titles to the show. Their latest trailer gives players a quick glimpse at all of the known titles they’re showing off in LA:

Ubisoft will actually kick proceedings off an hour earlier than their stage show with a pre-show stream that begins at 12PM PT. The stream will include updates on Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, For Honor, Steep, and Trials Rising, as well as “special surprises”. The stage show will then feature For Honor again, Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint, and Tom Clancy’s The Division 2, and we’re pretty sure there will be some new titles too, seeing as three games wouldn’t make for a very exciting show… four if you count the expected obligatory appearance from Just Dance .

Once the stage show has finished, the post-show stream will see Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege take the spotlight as celebrities take part in a live match. The streams will then continue through the rest of the week thanks to the “Ubisoft Live at E3” broadcasts, so be sure to tune in for all of the latest news, interviews, and game walkthroughs from the publisher.

Microsoft Will Show 14 Xbox Game Studios Titles at E3 2019

With E3 fast approaching, preparations are well under way. Microsoft is already rehearsing their stage show, and while they’re always careful not to leak any details beforehand, they’re not above dropping teasers to send fans into a frenzy before the show starts. In a Tweet posted after the latest Xbox rehearsal, Head of Xbox Phil Spencer revealed the team will have “lots to show”, including 14 Xbox Game Studios titles.

Of course, we already know what a couple of those will be. The Coalition will be bringing Gears 5 to the Xbox show and the E3 Coliseum, and 343 Industries will be showing off Halo Infinite. Rare’s Sea of Thieves will be at the show, although we’re unsure whether it will make it onto the stage, and with more details on Xbox Game Pass for PC promised during the show, we can expect appearances from the Age of Empires franchise, new titles from Obsidian and inXile, and perhaps even 343 Industries’ Halo: The Master Chief Collection. Finally, Playground Games are preparing to introduce their open-world action RPG in public for the first time, a game rumoured to be Fable IV.

With Microsoft’s other studios including Compulsion Games, Ninja Theory, The Initiative, Turn 10, Undead Labs, and Mojang, what else do you think we’ll see at the show?

New Darksiders Game to be Announced at E3

Most developers and publishers are desperately trying to stop their new titles from leaking to the public before they’re announced at E3 2019, but it doesn’t help when the E3 schedule itself is working against you. After the E3 Coliseum site leaked details of Square Enix’s upcoming Marvel’s Avengers title, they were at it again with the reveal of a new Darksiders game.

On Thursday, June 13th, Geoff Keighley will be hosting a stream with the developers to discuss how the franchise has evolved, and this will include the reveal of a new game. The full panel text is below:

DARKSIDERS: ACTION ADVENTURE EVOLVED

A discussion about the inception of the Darksiders universe and where it’s headed next. This panel will coincide with the E3 2019 unveil of a brand new Darksiders game that takes the franchise in a fresh direction. This is a panel discussion about the art and business of creating and maintaining an action adventure franchise rich in-game and corporate lore.

Publisher THQ Nordic recently revealed they had 80 games in development, of which 48 were unannounced. We knew that Metro developer 4A Games has a new title in the works, and with a new Darksiders game set to be revealed, it looks like there’s just 46 titles to go.

We’ve seen several video game adaptations of The Simpsons over the years, including 2003’s The Simpsons Hit & Run and 2012’s The Simpsons Tapped Out on mobile.

It’s been a long time since we’ve seen the famed dysfunctional family in video game form, and it’s very possible a new iteration is coming soon. During this year’s E3, we’ll be hearing from both the producers and writers of the popular cartoon during a panel taking place on June 11.

More exciting #E3Coliseum news - join the writers and producers of @TheSimpsons for a panel on June 11! More info to come... #E32019 https://t.co/QOa74rE263 pic.twitter.com/I3fOzO8t2n

Everything Announced at the Xbox E3 2019 Briefing

Yesterday Microsoft took to the stage for the biggest E3 stage show of this year. If you missed it, the Xbox E3 2019 Briefing can still be seen in its entirety on Youtube below. You can also see the full E3 2019 schedule to find out what else is due to happen over the next couple of days.

Microsoft managed to stay relatively tight-lipped about their show this year, so it was full of surprises, as well as some of the titles we expected to see. The highlight of the show was the reveal of the new Xbox console, Project Scarlett, arriving in time for the holiday 2020 season. Before then, players can get their hands on the new Xbox Elite Wireless Controller Series 2 in November.

Microsoft also showed off 60 titles throughout the show. Obsidian Entertainment’s The Outer Worlds and Ori and the Will of the Wisps got release dates. If the gameplay footage from EA PLAY wasn’t enough, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order got another cinematic trailer. Keanu Reeves took to the stage to talk about Cyberpunk 2077. We saw footage of a brand new Gears 5 game mode, Escape, as well as details on how players can get their hands on the game before its release date in September. Dying Light 2 got a new trailer, and Halo Infinite was revealed to be launching with Project Scarlett next year.

There were 11 world premieres and plenty of new announcements to see. Minecraft Dungeons, Bleeding Edge, Blair Witch, Microsoft Flight Simulator, LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga, 12 Minutes, Phantasy Star Online 2, CrossfireX, Tales of Arise, and Elden Ring were all revealed for the first time. If you’re more interested in what you can play right now, State of Decay 2 has gotten a new Heartland update, while Borderlands 2 got new Commander Lilith & The Fight For Sanctuary DLC — both add new achievements. Later this week, Forza Horizon 4 gets a new LEGO Speed Champions expansion that also brings along new achievements to earn.

Xbox Game Pass fans didn’t miss out either. More than 20 games were added to the programme on Xbox One, and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate became available for all players. Game Pass Ultimate also includes the brand new Xbox Game Pass for PC programme, which has launched in beta.

If that wasn’t enough, Double Fine was revealed to be Microsoft’s latest studio acquisition. Were you excited for anything Microsoft showed off?

Everything Announced During Bethesda’s E3 2019 Show

Bethesda’s E3 conferences certainly hit the spot with their fans. Last year, we were all bewildered by a surprise performance from Andrew WK amongst all of the trailers and announcements. While nothing like that happened this year, there were still plenty of announcements that you may have missed. You can still see the full show on Youtube below, and you can also check out the full E3 2019 schedule to find out what else is happening over the next couple of days.

After the customary overview trailer to kick off the show, Bethesda began with Fallout 76. Year 2 will begin with the free “Wastelanders” DLC this fall, as well as adding human NPCs, and a battle royale mode called Nuclear Winter. This was followed by an appearance from Tango Gameworks’ Shinji Mikami, who was there to introduce their new title Ghostwire: Tokyo.

We had a brief gap to highlight the Bethesda gaming community before moving on to The Elder Scrolls Online. As well as celebrating the launch of “Elsweyr” with a new trailer, the team announced a dungeon DLC called “Scalebreaker”. We then saw a couple of mobile games before we saw a new trailer for RAGE 2, announcing new features for the game that are due to be released this week.

Wolfenstein: Youngblood got a brand new trailer, before Arkane Studios hit the stage to announce their new title, Deathloop. Finally, we got a glimpse of DOOM Eternal, with an extended gameplay demo, a release date, a new Battlemode multiplayer mode, and a Collector’s Edition.
