Plenty of time for some major announcements, that.
Microsoft’s E3 press conference this year remains an enigma- they have a lot of major games announced for the coming year, including anticipated games like Crackdown 3, ReCore, Scalebound, Sea of Thieves, Halo Wars 2, and Gears of War 4, plus naturally, they have some unannounced surprises too – a new Xbox model is rumored, as well as a new controller – but there have been very little leaks that could clue us in to exactly what Microsoft may have up their sleeves.
Today we learned a bit more about this conference- at least we learned how long it will be. Speaking to a fan on Twitter, Xbox Head Phil Spencer confirmed that Microsoft’s E3 keynote this year will be 90 minutes long- which is plenty of time to pack in a whole lot of great new announcements and surprises
Microsoft had a great showing at E3 last year, though excitement over it has definitely been tempered by some of Microsoft’s recent moves– will they be able to have a repeat of that showing, and enthral fans and cynics alike again? It remains to be seen, but under Spencer, Microsoft have never disappointed at E3, so I remain hopeful.
