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.
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.

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.
