And some companies didn't wait to get started. That was followed by Google's first-ever Stadia Connect event.
But that was just the tip of the iceberg.
E3 2019's show floor is open June 11-13. You can check out the full EA PLAY schedule here, with the show running for a little more than three hours on Saturday morning. But instead of a traditional press conference like it has held in the past, EA will be hosting a series of livestreams on Saturday to highlight some of its current and upcoming games. One can expect a slew of announcements at the event that highlight some of its games like Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, Apex Legends, Battlefield and more. EA hopes to revive momentum for Apex Legends with a season two battle pass, while leaks suggest "Ubisoft plans to roll out a subscription offering similar to EA Access or Xbox Game Pass", analyst Jeff Cohen said.
Microsoft is going big with Gears 5, the latest in the Gears of War franchise. E3 2019 officially begins on June 11, but it's the press conferences scheduled for the days prior where most of the news actually happens. The current suspicion is that a new Xbox console will be officially announced after almost a year of teases. Perhaps more details will be given about the streaming service Project xCloud and its next-generation hardware. A lot of announcement will be made, trailers, games, and other news.
Bethesda is probably going to have a rather tame show this year. "Doom: Eternal" and "Wolfenstein: Youngblood" will likely be a major focus, with both due out before the end of 2019. While Devolver has typically brought a strong slate of games to E3, it also has a "unique" approach to its shows. Shortly before Assassin's Creed Odyssey launched previous year, Ubisoft confirmed that there won't be a new Assassin's Creed title in 2019 as the company works on DLC for Odyssey.
