Xbox is preparing its “biggest E3 presence ever,” covering Xbox One and PC gaming as well as online streaming through its Mixer platform.
The Xbox E3 2019 briefing will take place on June 9 at 1pm PDT.
It’s to be broadcast via Microsoft’s streaming platform Mixer, Xbox announced, with freebies for those that tune in; as with previous E3 presentations, it’s expected to be made available via other streaming and social media networks as well – Twitch, YouTube, Facebook and so on.
Early indications are that Xbox plans to take full advantage of PlayStation’s absence.
An Inside Xbox showcase will air the next day, Jun 10, from 3pm PDT, while a Mixer Dome at the LA Live event center is to provide access to “a ton of streaming activities” and Xbox plans to keep things going for the duration of the nearby E3 convention.
Bethesda, which publishes the “Doom,” “Elder Scrolls” and “Wolfenstein” games, is another company whose E3 2019 presence is already confirmed, as is Ubisoft of “Assassin’s Creed,” “Just Dance” and “Watch Dogs,” and while Electronic Arts is not holding a stage presentation, it does have its own off-site location, fan event, and streaming schedule planned for the weekend prior.
Nintendo, which has new “Pokémon” and “Animal Crossing” games out before the end of the year, is likely to again broadcast a program of game demonstrations and developer chats from the E3 show floor.
