Technically, E3 2017 begins on Tuesday, June 13th. However, this is just the floor show. In the days leading up to Tuesday, many publishers hold presentations to reveal all of the big titles on which they're working. Now, that presentation lineup is confirmed. Take a look at the table below to see who you should be watching and when you should be watching them.
|Publisher||Date||Time PDT||Time EDT||Time BST||Time CEST|
|Bethesda||June 11th (NA) / June 12th (EU)||19:00||22:00||03:00||04:00|
|Sony||June 12th (NA) / June 13th (EU)||18:00||21:00||02:00||03:00|
EA has already revealed a lot of their upcoming titles
. We know that Star Wars Battlefront II
, a new Need for Speed
title, Madden NFL 18
, FIFA 18
, NHL 18
, NBA LIVE 18
and a new UFC
title are all on their way within the next 12 months and they're all likely to be at the show. This doesn't mean there won't be surprises, though, especially as the publisher will be kicking off the proceedings and has the public's attention all to themselves.
Microsoft took the surprising decision to move their E3 presentation to the Sunday to avoid congestion. Unsurprisingly, the upcoming Project Scorpio will be on stage although Phil Spencer has confirmed that the console will not be dominating the presentation. Instead, there will be a focus on games, especially Scorpio's launch lineup. We know that Halo 6 will not be at E3
but State of Decay 2
most definitely will be, while Crackdown 3
and Sea of Thieves
have also been confirmed for release this year. Spencer also teased
"some things that we haven't talked about yet", so prepare for some surprises.
Bethesda has dubbed their presentation Bethesdaland. They've promised a night full of fun and games where people can mingle and see their new projects. The night will end with a "live musical performance from a top-secret act". Of all of the publishers, they're the one that has managed to keep the most tight-lipped about what they're planning. The only hints that you'll get are in the following image. Armchair detectives are go!
Ubisoft was the last of the publishers to confirm their E3 presentation. At the same time, they also dropped teasers
for Far Cry 5
, The Crew 2
and a new Assassin's Creed
title. It would be a shame if the company decided to spoil all of their big announcements before the show starts, but with three big titles already confirmed, what else can we expect?
Many of you will be questioning why we've included Sony, but like Microsoft, the Playstation creators also give airtime to games that turn out to be multi-platform. In previous years we've seen footage of Metal Gear Solid
, Resident Evil VII
and the Call of Duty
franchise. There's no reason to think that this year will be any different, so you may want to tune in.
We'll be providing live streams of all of the press conferences through our E3 hub
