E3 2019 is upon us, and to wade through all of the madness that’s in store, here’s the full E3 2019 schedule, ready to guide you through the biggest games event of the year.
This will be the third year in a row E3 is open to the public alongside the press. As usual, we’ll be there to bring you news and interviews from the show floor.
For those at home, you will be able to watch various livestreams from the biggest companies in the business. We’ve outlined what to expect over the next week and there have already been a few leaks, so bookmark this page to keep up with any additions or changes.
E3 2019 dates
E3 2019 runs from June 11-13 in Los Angeles. As with the last few years, Microsoft, Bethesda, and Electronic Arts will hold events separate from E3 2019. Ubisoft will host its usual stage show, while Nintendo and Square Enix will once again air a pre-recorded announcement video.
E3 2019 Schedule UK and US – Conference dates and times
Below you will find the current schedule for E3 2019 presentations and showcases. You will notice some entries are blank. We will bring you more times as the publishers announce additional details.
Electronic Arts will not host a briefing this year, as it’s focus this year is “less talk, more games.” Still, it will be hosting various livestreams during E3 week featuring information on Season 2 of Apex Legends, the gameplay reveal of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, and more.

E3 2019 PS5 and next-gen Xbox
PS5 development is underway, but since Sony is skipping E3 this year, any announcement regarding the console is off the table. We wouldn’t rule a dedicated event for its reveal in 2020, however. For now, here’s everything we know about the PS5.
Microsoft is rumored to announce its next Xbox console codenamed Anaconda. The console is said to be a “more powerful machine” and unlike the recently revealed SKU, it features a disc drive.
Anaconda is said to offer native 4K with its much more powerful GPU and will be similarly priced to the Xbox One X at launch, costing around $500.
Halo Infinite is said to be a launch title when the machines release at the end of 2020, though the game will also be available on the Xbox One family of consoles.
E3 2019 how to watch
As is tradition, E3 2019 presentations and events will be streamable from pretty much any device you own on Twitch, YouTube, Twitter, and Facebook. VG247 will embed the streams right here on the site if you’re struggling to find them.
