Microsoft looks likely to unveil its series of next-generation Xbox consoles at its E3 2019 conference on June 9 and, with Sony skipping the tradeshow this year, the timing couldn't be better.
While Microsoft hasn't confirmed what it will be showing off in terms of hardware, we're pretty confident there will at the very least be mention of the next Xbox. We're also expecting to hear more about XCloud, Microsoft’s new game streaming service and new updates to its Xbox Game Pass subscription service which has grown immensely in the last 12 months.
When is Microsoft's Xbox E3 2019 conference?
When: Microsoft's Xbox E3 2019 conference will be held on Sunday, June 9 at 1pm PT, 4pm ET and 9pm BST or Monday, June 10 at 6am AEST.
How long will the conference last? Typically the Microsoft Xbox E3 conference is an hour to two hours long.
In terms of games, we’re predicting that Microsoft’s first-party studios should be there in full force with new footage of Gears 5, Halo Infinite and, as always, a new Forza title. We're also counting on a few indies being thrown in for good measure.
Last year Microsoft announced the acquisition of several new studios including The Initiative, Undead Labs, Playground Games, Ninja Theory and Compulsion Games, so hopefully we’ll start to see some of the projects these companies have been working on.
