To gamers everywhere, June marks the arrival of the annual Electronic Entertainment Expo, commonly called E3 for brevity.
Every year, the biggest gaming publishers and developers make the trek to the Los Angeles Convention Center to showcase their most impressive hardware and software. Everyone has become accustomed to seeing the big three (Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo) deliver the most exciting press conferences of the entire show. Other noteworthy gaming giants such as Electronic Arts, Ubisoft, Square Enix and Bethesda put on live presentations that give gamers a glimpse of what’s to come.
E3 2019 looks to be decidedly different from past years. Sony announced it would be skipping the show, which leaves Microsoft and Nintendo in a better position to become the main focus of the expo. While Sony may be preparing to officially unveil the PlayStation 5 via a live-streamed event later down the line, Microsoft may use its E3 show to announce plans for the next Xbox. As for Nintendo, it’s safe to say the company will give us its usual Nintendo Direct live stream and deliver a sneak peek at upcoming titles and newly announced projects.
The excitement surrounding E3 has always been about the games we know about and the ones we hope to see. With so many believable and outlandish rumors floating around the gaming hemisphere, there are plenty of dream games to fantasize about. If any of the games below have a chance of being real, they’d all make for some jaw-dropping reveal trailers at E3. Our fingers are crossed as we hope one or even all of these games turn out to be a reality.
