E3 2018: Official Hype Thread

Edit: updated full schedule


What to expect this year from The Big Three?

The Microsoft Xbox E3 2018 press conference is on June 10, two days before E3 kicks off properly. Expect a mixture of Microsoft Studio titles along with demos of third-party games to make up the show. You can find out when the Microsoft Xbox E3 2018 press conference begins in your area by consulting the list below:

June 10 - 1 pm PT
June 10 - 4 pm ET
June 10 - 9 pm BST
Microsoft has tried to make its E3 conferences more about the games and less about the data surrounding them, so expect its E3 2018 conference to be lean.

Really hoping the rumors of Borderlands 3 and a new Splinter Cell are legit.

Square Enix has their own press conference now? That's new right?

And what about EA?

New Splinter Cell is definitely happening.

And so is Rage 2, for some reason.

Rage 2 gotta be the dumbest announcement. Hopefully Bethesda announces that new sci-fi IP. Not sure if that has been confirmed.

Probably most hyped for Cyberpunk.

But seriously, because CDPR is rumored to present Cyberpunk 2077 on their conference and I guess Halo 6 and Halo Something Else and they can’t just shut down profit, albeit a significantly smaller one this gen, which is their own goddamn fault.

XBox Next should really look upon the whole world and think global. And give us Games, more exclusives, less launch bullshit.

As for this year’s E3, it may be the biggest one in my book.

The Last of Us: Part II, Death Stranding, Cyberpunk 2077, Ghost of Tsushima, more Spidey, possibly Metroid 4 footage... just gimme.
