Devolver Digital is Hosting Another Gonzo E3 2019 Press Conference, Invites Fans to Discuss Leaks Early

Expect another crazy E3 from Devolver.

E3 press conferences really used to be extended business presentations. But as the event has become more commercial in recent years, stage presentations from companies have either become big promotional affairs, or taken offstage altogether in favor of straight trailer reveals. Devolver Digital might be the only company to turn the presentation into a stage theater show, and the company is doing so again at E3 2019.

For the past two years, popular indie publisher Devolver Digital has offered a macabre theater show in the guise of a company press conference. Host Nina Struthers would go on stage and for the next hour it was anything goes. Sometimes they would reveal games like a re-release of Metal Wolf Chaos, sometimes they'd sell an actual "lootboxcoin" cryptocurrency-thing.

Devolver teased that it will be hosting yet another press conference at E3 this year on June 9, 7 P.M. PT. The company added a short video teaser of what looks like several "scientists" screwing in a screen. It's not much to go on, but Devolver looks to be going for the theatrical angle again this year for its press conference.

Furthermore, Devolver linked to a Discord channel for fans to discuss "potential leaks, rumors, and speculation." Nothing like an official space to try and get at a company's leaks before the biggest gaming event of the year.

E3 will be held on June 11 through June 13, though press conferences will be held the weekend before the show. Check out our E3 2019 guide for a full schedule, and check back with USG which will be attending the show again this year.
