E3 2019 is getting closer and we are slowly getting leaks about what to expect from the mega event. Sony is not attending this year’s E3 but all of the other major companies are there thus there will be a lot of new game announcements.
GameStop has listed more than 20 new SKUs (stock keeping unit) for PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch. They are all for new games that are potentially getting an announcement at the upcoming E3 2019. They don’t leak the game names but they do give a good idea of how many pre-orders will go up for new games during E3 week.
The companies which are confirmed to host their press conference at E3 2019 are Microsoft, Nintendo, Ubisoft, Bethesda, and Square Enix. There are other minor updates during the event like Devolver Digital’s press conference or new game announcements by other third-party developers.
As far as these new listing for various SKUs are concerned, old games that are already announced don’t get counted in these listing so they are most likely for new games. Microsoft will present 14 first-party titles at E3 2019. Nintendo will host their own Nintendo direct while other companies have similar plans so this remains par the course for E3 every year.
Square Enix has recently confirmed that they will show Marvel’s Avengers at E3 while Ubisoft has been rumored to announce Watch Dogs 3. Nintendo Direct will mostly focus on the games that will be out this year as opposed to making announcements for 2020 and beyond.
