In just under 2 months, the biggest convention in the video game industry goes down. Ladies and gents, the hype train that is pre-E3 is here! Most of the major news is usually announced at the console and AAA studio press conferences that happen the days before the show. Well, Microsoft today sent out an email to PR that has given us a time and a date to their annual E3 press conference.
“We’re excited to return to E3 this year where we’ll showcase more games and experiences coming later in 2016 and beyond, starting with our briefing at 9:30 AM PDT on Monday, June 13.”
As usual, the press conference is early and will likely be a focal point to the day. Sony usually follows up with a press conference the afternoon of Microsoft’s Xbox show, so this actually give us more info than just what Microsoft has up their sleeve.
While we don’t have any official word of what will be at the 2016 Xbox press conference, it’s safe to assume that Microsoft’s gem of the show will likely be Gears of War 4. Of course, it’s fair to expect some information on Call of Duty 2016, Titanfall 2 and Killer Instinct.
We’ll be sure to share more information on the 2016 Xbox press conference as it becomes available.
