It is almost time for the Electronic Entertainment Expo again, and as many gamers know, gaming developers and publishers will be showing us what we can expect over the next year in terms of game releases. Some of the news we have received is already big, such as Sony choosing to abstain from E3 this year. And while EA won’t actually be there for a press conference, they will be doing live streams for their game announcements.
So for those of you who don’t know how E3 works, let me explain. It is a gaming expo conference held in Los Angeles every year where game developers and publishers get to showcase their upcoming products. The actual conference takes from 11 – 13 June 2019.
Be that as it may, many of them have press conferences before the time, some that you can attend in person, and others through live streams. And then during the actual E3 event is when you can participate and test some of the games.
Here is a list of the press conferences that have been scheduled for E3 2019:
