Believe it or not, E3 2018 is almost here. The annual gaming extravaganza returns to Los Angeles in June for what is poised to be one of the biggest week’s all year for gaming news. Much of the news is expected to come from the various press conferences taking place during the week. Microsoft, Bethesda, and EA have already announced the date and time of their briefings, while we’re expecting Sony, Nintendo, Ubisoft, and others to follow soon.
EA kicks things off on Saturday, June 9, with its EA Play briefing, while Microsoft and Bethesda will follow on Sunday afternoon and evening, respectively. If history is any indication, Sony’s will be held on Monday evening, with something from Nintendo starting sometime on Tuesday. There will be a PC Gaming Show this year as well, while we hope that indie publisher Devolver returns this year because last year’s show was bananas.
Below you can see a rundown of the press conference times and dates that we know about. We will continue to update this post in the days and weeks ahead leading up to E3. The show itself runs June 12-14, and like last year, it’s open to the public–here’s how to get tickets.
In other news, Cyberpunk 2077 developer CD Projekt Red has confirmed it is attending E3 this year, though this doesn’t necessarily mean we’ll learn more about the upcoming sci-fi game.
