Report: Microsoft's E3 Conference Date and Time Revealed

The first big three conference gets a time and date.

Even though E3 is still three months away, it's never too early to start getting hyped about this year's biggest video game event. Which is why we can happily report that Microsoft's E3 conference this year will be held on June 10 this year at 1pm PT/4pm ET. That's a Sunday mind you, just like last year's Microsoft conference.

This comes from The Verge's Tom Warren, who also suggested that Microsoft will be doing "something new" this year, though there are no details about what that might mean. E3 watchers will recognize that Microsoft held its 2017 E3 conference on a Sunday last year as well.

No word yet on what will be at Microsoft's E3 conference this year. Last year, the company unveiled the Xbox One X and a handful of Xbox One X compatible games. But all eyes will be tuning in to see whether or not Microsoft can come up with some exclusives to help bolster its powerful hardware.

We also have no confirmation on when the other conferences will be held aside from Bethesda's conference, which is on the same date as the reported Microsoft conference, but at 6:30pm PT/9:30pm ET.

USgamer intends be at E3 again this year, so tune in closer to June when we bring you the latest news from the world's biggest video game conference. We've contacted Microsoft to confirm the report and we will update the story if more details emerge.
