E3 finally wrapped up yesterday, following five days (six, if you count EA’s events as a part of it) of announcements, interviews, and streams concerning the biggest and best upcoming video games. But it’s never too early to start thinking about next year, and so, as per usual, the ESA has already provided the dates of E3 2019. It will look pretty similar to this year’s, taking place in the second full week of June once again, from June 11-13.
No doubt the days before it, June 9th and 10th, will be filled with the customary series of press conferences from the big names in the industry. We’ll have to wait until next year, though, before seeing exactly which companies will be holding conferences again—Microsoft, EA, Ubisoft, and Sony are all a given, and Devolver Digital has already promised a return in 2019, but Square Enix, Bethesda, and Limited Run Games aren’t so certain. Time will tell, though.
Once again, E3 2019 will be held in the Los Angeles Convention Center, but that could be its last year there. At the end of E3 2017, the groups behind E3 requested that the LACC make improvements to better accommodate the show, and if those are not made, it could result in them moving elsewhere from 2020 on. Again, only time will tell if that actually comes to pass or if E3 will continue to be held in its present location.
