E3 2019 is here. The Electronic Entertainment Expo may have started as an industry trade show, but it is has ballooned into a full-on spectacle. Gaming companies from across the world converge on Los Angeles in June for a week full of exclusive announcements, incredible updates, and celebrations regarding the gaming industry in general. There’s nothing else like it in the video game world, and this year’s event figures to be one of the best yet.
This year’s conferences began on Sunday, June 9 and will run through Tuesday, June 11. Meanwhile, the expo floor, where all the latest and upcoming games will be on display, will be open from Tuesday, June 11 and run until Thursday, June 13. As always, the event will be held at the Los Angeles Convention Center and the immediate surrounding area.
Between Microsoft showcasing its latest Xbox One titles while preparing to introduce the next generation of consoles and Nintendo continuing to shock the world with its success and innovations, this year’s major game studios will likely roll into E3 – or, in the case of Nintendo, an E3-themed Direct video – looking to steal the show. Competing with them are a host of major publishers – Bethesda, Ubisoft, and Square Enix – that have recently been stealing the show from E3’s biggest presenters.
You can expect more and more information about E3 2019 to be leaked out in the days and weeks to come, but for now, here’s everything we know about the biggest gaming show of the year:
