Microsoft E3 2019 Press Conference Set for June 9
According to Microsoft in an interview with Xbox Wire, E3 2019 will be their “biggest E3 presence ever” though no clarification has been provided regarding Microsoft’s plans. Rumors suggest that Microsoft may reveal the next generation lineup of Xbox consoles – codenamed Lockhart and Anaconda – at E3 2019.
The timing does feel right, especially considering how details regarding Sony’s next console, the PlayStation 5, have already been leaked. That said, rumors regarding Xbox Lockhard and Anaconda still remain entirely speculative in nature. Meanwhile, others have noted that we may get new info on upcoming games like Halo Infinite and Cyberpunk 2077, which certainly seems plausible.
Personally, we’re hoping for a full Halo 5 gameplay trailer, as well as a tentative release window for Cyberpunk 2077. Outside of the conference itself, Microsoft also plans to host an episode of Inside Xbox at E3 the following day, June 10, at 3 p.m. (PST) and 6 p.m. (EST). As with the conference, Inside Xbox will be streamed live on Mixer so that gamers at home can catch up on everything Microsoft has planned for 2019 and beyond.
