This year’s E3 Electronic Entertainment Expo is almost upon us, which for the newbies out there it brings us all the biggest announcements in gaming for the year ahead. Our E3 2019 Press Conference schedule guide is here to give you everything you need to know to get ahead of the game, before the main event arrives.
E3 2019 Press Conference schedule
As with previous years E3 2019 is going to be held across the pond at the L.A Convention Centre, and will run through the 11th – 13th June 2019 inclusive.
We have already been given the thumbs down from both Electronic Arts and Sony, who won’t make an appearance in our E3 2019 Press Conference schedule. Out of the two no-shows however, EA are going to be hosting their own EA Play Event which we believe are going to show off titles such as Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order with some more top-notch titles anticipated.
With E3 2019 starting in a matter of weeks, most of the companies appearing at the show have revealed when they’ll have their appearance slot, and where they’ll feature within the E3 2019 Press Conference schedule. In addition, a handful of the companies appearing have given teasers of what we can expect to see from them during the show. We’ve detailed all of the dates and times of each day of the event below, and should any of these change we will keep this article updated on the run up to the show.
As games are announce through the E3 2019 Press Conference schedule, we will also keep you posted on what the reveals are along with any release dates that are confirmed.
As far as E3 goes, the event has been held in Los Angeles for several years now, but E3 2019 is the final year for it to be hosted at this location. 2020 will see the location of E3 being hosted elsewhere, but no details have been speculated as of yet – although London would go down well for us in the UK! Nothing is definite at this times, but the organisers behind E3 have essentially told the LA Convention Center that they need to get their facilities in top shape or they could be seeking a new location to host the event.
