Microsoft Xbox E3 2018 Press Conference Date and Time
The Microsoft Xbox E3 2018 press conference is on June 10, two days before E3 kicks off properly. Expect a mixture of Microsoft Studio titles along with demos of third-party games to make up the show. You can find out when the Microsoft Xbox E3 2018 press conference begins in your area by consulting the list below:
- June 10 - 1 pm PT
- June 10 - 4 pm ET
- June 10 - 9 pm BST
This is welcome news to European viewers given the reasonable start time. Microsoft has tried to make its E3 conferences more about the games and less about the data surrounding them, so expect its E3 2018 conference to be lean.
Games Likely to be Shown at the Microsoft Xbox E3 2018 Conference
Microsoft is on the back foot but trying hard to make the Xbox the powerhouse it was during the Xbox 360 era. Expect to see plenty of games, both new and known about.
- Crackdown 3
- Forza Horizon 4
- Sea of Thieves
- Ori and the Will of the Wisps
A tease of the new Fable would be nice, but that game is still a long way off, so don't get your hopes up. Outside of a new Forza Horizon it's hard to see what else Microsoft has up its sleeve for the end of 2018, but hopefully the platform holder will surprise us.
It's always worth remembering that backwards compatability could feature at Microsoft's E3 2018 presentation. The publishing giant is always looking to impress by getting old, great games onto their new console, and it's definitely one advantage they have over Sony.
