The one chief absence from the E3 2019 is Sony. Like EA, they won't be holding a proper presentation at this year's E3. But whereas E3 will be putting on the EA Play event for the public to attend, Sony won't be rocking up to the show at all.
Below, we'll break down each presentation in detail. We'll go over the start times of every E3 2019 conference, as well as detailing all the games we expect to be at the corresponding shows.
- Bethesda E3 2019
- EA E3 2019
- Microsoft E3 2019
- Nintendo E3 2019
- PC Gaming Show 2019
- Sony E3 2019
- Square Enix E3 2019
- Ubisoft E3 2019
- E3 2019 Confirmed Games
Bethesda E3 2019
Bethesda only started doing E3 presentations a matter of years ago, but they're definitely known as having one of the tighter presentations at the show, with the least padding. Doom Eternal will be the big game of Bethesda's E3 2019 showcase, while you can also probably expect to hear some details about future content for The Elder Scrolls: Blades, The Elder Scrolls Online, and The Elder Scrolls Legends. Probably nothing about The Elder Scrolls 6, though.
- 5:30 p.m. PT
- 8:30 p.m. ET
- 1:30 a.m. BST
- 2:30 a.m. CEST
EA E3 2019
For E3 2019, EA announced that they wouldn't be hosting a presentation, as they have done for the past few years. Instead, there'll once again be the EA Play event, which last year offered the public a chance to play games like Battlefield 5 early. EA should be hosting livestreams for upcoming games like Madden 20, which we'll be posting the times for here as soon as they're revealed.
Microsoft E3 2019
As ever, Microsoft will be showcasing their coming year of games on the Sunday of E3, on June 9. Halo Infinite will likely be the headline game of the Microsoft E3 2019 conference, while you can definitely expect to hear some Gears of War 5 news as well. It's also likely that we'll get some sort of news about the next Forza game, and we should see some details about Microsoft's next console, whatever that actually entails.
- 1 p.m. PT
- 4 p.m. ET
- 9 p.m. BST
- 10 p.m. CEST
Nintendo E3 2019
Nintendo has just announced that they're going to be holding a proper E3 2019 Direct on Tuesday, June 11. Outside of tournaments for Splatoon 2 and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Nintendo will be revealing more of their future games through a full Nintendo E3 2019 Direct. We should expect to see more of Pokemon Sword and Shield, Luigi's Mansion 3, and a few other treats.
- 9 a.m. PT
- 12 p.m. ET
- 5 p.m. BST
- 6 p.m. CEST
PC Gaming Show 2019
The PC Gaming Show is the oddball of E3. You can never really be entirely sure what games or hardware will turn up at the show. But, you can bet we'll see a fair few indie gems at the presentation, with Sable debuting at the PC Gaming Show in 2018.
- 10 a.m. PT
- 1 p.m. ET
- 6 p.m. BST
- 7 p.m. CEST
Sony E3 2019
Perhaps the biggest news going into E3 2019 this year is the fact that Sony will be entirely absent from the trade show. Sony has always typically had headline reveals across E3 over the years, from The Last of Us Part 2 to Days Gone, Ghost of Tsushima, and Death Stranding. But this year Sony won't be present at E3 2019 at all, so you'll have to wait a while longer for some news on any of their forthcoming games.
Square Enix E3 2019
The Square Enix E3 2019 conference will be taking the evening slot that was previously occupied by Sony. While you can probably expect some news about Dragon Quest 11 and Dragon Quest Builders 2 for the Nintendo Switch, Square Enix has now confirmed that the Final Fantasy 7 Remake will be at E3 2019 in some capacity.
- 6 p.m. PT
- 9 p.m. ET
- 2 a.m. BT
- 3 a.m. CEST
Ubisoft E3 2019
Ubisoft has always had a laid back, entertaining presentation at E3 2019, and it's honestly a show that I quite look forward to each year, dancing panda mascots and all. We're expecting to hear some news about Beyond Good and Evil 2, and maybe some news about the rumored Watch Dogs 3 at the Ubisoft E3 2019 presentation.
- 1 p.m. PT
- 4 p.m. ET
- 9 p.m. BST
- 10 p.m. CEST
E3 2019 Confirmed Games
Publishers don't usually reveal many games that will definitely be at E3, before the show takes place. This is why we've got a limited list of titles below that have been confirmed for E3 2019 so far, but we'll be building out this list whenever future games are confirmed.
- Cyberpunk 2077 - Earlier in the year, CD Projekt RED confirmed that Cyberpunk 2077 would be at E3 2019 in some capacity. Our money is on the ambitious game appearing at Microsoft's show, making a reappearance from last year's Microsoft show.
- Doom Eternal - Bethesda previously confirmed that Doom Eternal would be at their presentation for E3 2019. This is probably the only AAA game that Bethesda is releasing in the latter half of this year, so it'll take pole position at the show.
- Dying Light 2 - Techland recently confirmed that Dying Light 2 would be present at E3 2019. The game previously appeared at Microsoft's presentation at E3 2018, so it's likely that it could make a reappearance at the show this year.
- Halo Infinite - One of the biggest games Microsoft has in its arsenal right now is Halo Infinite, which we still know basically nothing about. While Microsoft previously confirmed that Halo Infinite has nothing to do with the battle royale genre, they did reveal that it would be at E3 2019.
What is E3?
Simply speaking, E3 is the biggest video game trade show in North America. Typically, it used to be spread out across multiple convention centers in LA, where games media visitors could try out games, and hardware, ahead of release.
But in just the past few years, E3 has been opened for the public to attend. Anyone can now purchase a ticket to the show taking place over multiple days in LA, and they can attend events like EA's EA Play event, which showcases EA games that are yet to be released, as well as playing other blockbuster games on the show floor.
E3 is still used as the main stage to announce new games and hardware to the world. It's where countless triple A games like Assassin's Creed, Battlefield, Devil May Cry, Monster Hunter, The Division, and more are revealed for the first time. It's also traditionally where new consoles from Microsoft and Sony are unveilved in front of the world, as if a litany of blockbuster titles weren't enough.
