With E3 2019 less than two months away, many publishers have begun detailing their plans for this year’s show. Last week, Microsoft confirmed the date and time of its annual Xbox press conference, and now Square Enix has announced it is holding another live presentation of its own at this year’s expo.
The Square Enix Live broadcast is scheduled to take place on Monday, June 10, at 6 PM PT / 9 PM ET-the time slot traditionally occupied by Sony’s E3 press conference. Sony, of course, won’t be using that time slot this year, as the company announced back in November that it won’t be attending E3 2019, leaving a sizable gap for other publishers to fill.
The Square Enix Live presentation will be broadcast online on the company’s website and other social media channels. As for what will be revealed during the broadcast, Square Enix has only hinted that it will focus on «another exciting line up of titles.» Last year, the company showcased Kingdom Hearts 3, Just Cause 4, and even revealed a handful of unannounced games like Babylon’s Fall, a new title from Bayonetta developer Platinum Games.
What was conspicuously missing from last year’s presentation was the Final Fantasy VII remake. Little has been said about the title since it was first announced back at Sony’s E3 2015 press conference, so there is a chance it may make an appearance in this year’s broadcast. Square Enix also has an Avengers game in the works that we know very little about, and a Nintendo Switch version of Dragon Quest XI is on the way this year, which will presumably be one of the games highlighted during its live event.
E3 2019 officially kicks off on Tuesday, June 11. This is notably the last year the show has been confirmed for its current venue, the Los Angeles Convention Center, which has traditionally served as the site of E3 for most of the expo’s history. Microsoft’s E3 2019 conference is scheduled for Sunday, June 9, while Nintendo traditionally airs a pre-recorded presentation on the day E3 proper begins.
