This is really the only conference that matters.
Sony and EA may be sitting out E3 this year, at least as far as having a press conference goes, but that won’t stop rogue and fan-favorite Devolver Digital, the publishing label for some of the biggest indie games on the market, from doing their thing. After their unexpectedly hilarious meta-E3 “press conference” in 2017 went viral, and they followed up with a bigger and better sequel in every possible way in 2018, it seems like they will be back this year to try for a three-peat, they announced on Twitter today.
In case you are not aware—Devolver Digital press conferences aren’t actual press conferences. They are pre-recorded skits that make fun of the whole concept of an E3 press conference, with over the top performances and announcements. They’ve actually been working through a story over the last couple of years, and last year’s show even ended on a cliffhanger—so we’re due for a resolution this year. This is good news, then!
Maybe they can officially announce the PS4 version of The Messenger during the show…
FWIW we’re still going to do an E3 press conference.
