PC Gaming Show – E3 2019
PC Gamer will broadcast the fifth annual PC Gaming Show live from E3 on Twitch Monday, June 10 at 10 AM PT, 1pm ET, 6pm BST, 7pm CEST.
Square Enix pre-recorded showcase – E3 2019
Could this be the year we finally hear how Final Fantasy 7 Remake is coming along? Maybe even shown to us? Possibly.
The first ever official concert dedicated to Final Fantasy 7 is taking place on June 9 at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles the day before E3 kicks off. Coincidence? We sure hope not. Give us the goods, Square.
It’s quite possible we’ll hear something on The Avengers project too, currently in development at Crystal Dynamics and Eidos Montreal.
This will be the publisher’s third E3 “press conference” so expect all the usual shenanigans along with a battering of interesting games.
E3 2019 games
With the annual event comes a plethora of new game announcements and release dates. While we’re not 100% on everything to expect, here’s a few educated guesses, rumors, updates and those we have our fingers crossed for a reveal.
Expect this list to grow over time:
E3 2019 PS5 and next-gen Xbox
PS5 development is underway, but since Sony is skipping E3 this year, any announcement regarding the console is off the table. We wouldn’t rule a dedicated event for its reveal in 2020, however. For now, here’s everything we know about the PS5.
Microsoft is rumored to announce its next Xbox console codenamed Anaconda. The console is said to be a “more powerful machine” and unlike the recently revealed sku, it features a disc drive.
Anaconda is said to offer native 4K with its much more powerful GPU and will be similarly priced to the Xbox One X at launch, costing around $500.
Halo Infinite is said to be a launch title when the machines release at the end of 2020, though the game will also be available on the Xbox One family of consoles.
E3 2019 how to watch
As is tradition, E3 2019 will be streamable from pretty much any device you own and you will be able to watch it all over the internet. VG247 will embed the streams right here on the site if you’re struggling to find them.
