E3 2019 Press Conference & Main Event Schedule, Links, Confirmed Games

We went insane gathering all these details so that you don’t have to.

June 7, 2019

E3 2019 might just be the weirdest E3 yet.

Sony is not attending, and the info about the highly anticipated Death Stranding we’re seeing from Hideo Kojima’s twitter feed is frankly bizarre. If you want to learn about any Playstation exclusives, you’ll have to pay attention to something other than E3 2019 coverage this year.

Taking a quick break from beating traditional media to death with a framing hammer, Netflix will make an appearance on stage at E3 this year to talk about a couple of their upcoming video games.

From Software will probably show up with info about the game they’re making with George R.R. Martin. Apparently, he’s not very busy writing an actually acceptable ending to ASOIAF.

And finally, in a return to normality, Bethesda will as usual not talk at all about TES VI. Nothing weird about that.

Read on to learn how and when to catch all the conferences, see a list of all games confirmed to make an appearance at E3 2019, and catch up on all the rumors and gossip surrounding gaming’s biggest yearly event.

Make sure you don’t miss any of the pre E3 2019 streams and events, like Ubisoft revealing a new game every day from June 6-9.

Developer Updates

THQ Nordic revealing three new games at E3 2019

Bethesda at E3 2019

      • No Starfield appearance
      • No TES VI
      • Expect to see them hype up the Fallout 76 expansion due out this summer, Elder Scrolls Online, and Elder Scrolls Blades mobile game. Yawn, yawn, and yawn. I’m not expecting anything exciting from Bethesda for several more years.

Ubisoft at E3 2019

      • Watchdogs 3: Legion
      • Three game announcements leading up to E3.

Netflix at E3 2019

What games will they be showing at E3, if any? Stranger Things 3. It’s exciting to think about all the different intellectual properties that Netflix owns, and how they could be made into video games. Other corporate mega-behemoths catch flak from the fanboys and fangirls for mishandling a well-loved franchise, usually because they water it down to make it appealing to a broader audience.

Will Netflix feel the same pressure as a game developer, or will their ability to print money allow them to maintain their independence? Do they even want to be a real game developer, or do they want to cash in on cheap iPhone games? E3 2019 should give us a good idea what route they’re taking.

Microsoft at E3 2019

        • 14 games said to be premiering at E3.
      • Forza 8
      • Fable
      • Lots of rumors that Microsoft will be revealing new Xbox “Scarlett.” It would make sense since they’re also deeply discounting the Xbox One X during their E3 sale. They’ll also most likely talk about xCloud and blending PC and Xbox over Game Pass.

I still can’t decide if cross-platform play is a good thing, as it means you’re in some ways limiting everyone to play at the speed of the weakest system. I’m very interested to hear what Microsoft has to say, and at least it’s a move in a positive direction, unlike the constant attempts at gatekeeping and paywalls like the Epic Games Store and Google’s recently announced Stadia.

Square Enix E3 2019

We’re at the end of an era for Marvel, who have an uncertain cinematic future now that their main IP is finished at the box office. Fortunately, comic book video games are usually pretty good, and with a solid company like Square Enix at the helm, I’m hoping their upcoming Marvel’s Avengers game will keep up with that tradition of excellence. As the Marvel Ultimate Alliance series is my favorite in the co-op beat em up genre, I’m also excited to see a new entry coming to the Switch this year.

Expect to see news about SE’s Final Fantasy VII remake and DLC for Kingdom Hearts III at their E3 press conference this year as well. All in all, this should be a banner year for the Japanese Giant—Square Enix that is, not Godzilla.

Devolver Digital E3 2019

The oddball studio will not quite make it to E3 2019…but apparently, they will be partying hard right across the street from the convention center. Devolver will be revealing 4 games on Sunday June 9 on twitch.

Conclusion

What are you looking forward to this year’s E3? Are you excited for something in particular? Tell us in the comments below and stay tuned for more updates.
