With a bunch of long-awaited sequels to beloved franchises and some exciting new IP, 2019 is Nintendo's year to take with their E3 2019 showcase.
Bethesda is probably going to have a rather tame show this year. With Japanese tech giant Sony sitting this one out and Nintendo doing its usual direct, all eyes will be on the USA tech giant Microsoft for E3 2019. Last year, the company covered a ton of ground, announcing Fallout 76, Starfield, and The Elder Scrolls 6. Where it goes in the future, we don't know. So, while we may learn some more about that DLC, we won't see a new Assassin's Creed game unless Ubisoft is trying to pull off a really big gotcha. E3 2019 will host Ubisoft, Electronic Arts, Xbox, Bethesda, Nintendo, Square Enix, with their upcoming projects, starting from Saturday, June 8th.
For starters, Nintendo is hosting is competitive events this year pre-E3, to give Nintendo Treehouse live more time to reveal information about its upcoming game library. Because of the trailer that was released after four years of absence, The Final Fantasy VII will make an appearance on E3 2019.
Xbox supported a Borderlands 3 event at the start of May and the September launch could well turn up, especially after a surprise expansion for "Borderlands 2" leaked with a June 9 date; Ori and the Will of the Wisps, Battletoads and skateboarding sim Session should be considered at least as likely for acknowledgement.
The coming of summer means it's time for another E3, one of the largest video game trade shows in the world.
Meanwhile, Nintendo's E3 2019 Direct presentation will be a livestream, like it always is, that's held at 9 a.m. PT / 12 p.m. ET on June 11. We're expecting much of the same for its press conference in 2019, ranging from hardware announcements to a full slate of games.
You can watch the press conference on Microsoft's YouTube and Twitch channels. Additionally, Gears 5 could be showcased on stage, along with Halo: Infinite, Age of Empires and a new Fable title. There should be some big games on display from a variety of publishers too, so E3 2019 will definitely be worth following.
This is the list of the companies that are participating at E3 2019 and what we know about their plans.
