E3 2019 Overview Updated June 14, 2019

E3 2019

The biggest announcements from E3 2019

E3 2019 (Electronics Entertainment Expo) is upon us. The world’s largest and most exciting gaming event of the year will take place in LA from June 11th through 13th, but we are expecting the major reveals to kick-off on June 7th. While Sony has bowed out of the competition this year, we expect presentations from Microsoft, Nintendo, Bethesda, EA, Square Enix and more to make up for it just fine. While rumors are swirling regarding Microsoft’s next generation console and recent cloud gaming initiatives, as usual E3 2019 is all about the games. Just a few of the titles we expect to see at the show include Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, the Final Fantasy VII Remake, Gears 5, Halo Infinite, Beyond Good and Evil 2, Skull and Bones and many more. Stay locked to 9to5Toys all month for all the biggest reveals, gameplay footage and news out of E3 2019.

Square Enix streaming service inbound, if the company can find its old games

It sounds like a dedicated Square Enix streaming service might be on the way. After an exciting E3 2019 presentation with titles like Marvel’s Avengers, Dragon Quest Builders 2, Outriders and Final Fantasy VII: Remake, the company is now talking digital streaming. Square has an incredibly deep catalogue of older games dating way back to the 1980’s that gamers would love to get their hands on in some official capacity. And it now sounds like Square is already starting to dig through the crates in order to re-release some of its classics, if it can find them that is. More details below.

But that’s on top of a brand new remake coming from the series coming sometime next year. Head below for all the details.
