E3 is a little over a month away and we now have a solid looking schedule for all the various press conferences companies will host during gaming's big week. Square Enix in particular has some big shoes to fill.
With Sony skipping E3 entirely, and Nintendo's stage presence reduced since deciding to make E3 announcements through Nintendo Direct livestreams, Microsoft essentially has E3's biggest stage to itself at this year's event. But that doesn't mean Microsoft will be alone.
Companies like Square Enix, Ubisoft, and Bethesda, which also hold E3 press conferences, will once again be hosting showcases at E3 this year. Furthermore, newcomers like UploadVR will be hosting press conferences as well in the wake of Sony's absence. Check out the current E3 schedule below.
