E3 is the biggest gaming event of the year because companies reveal new projects, hardware, and long-awaited release dates. Dominating a news cycle with heavy-hitting games is a must and so is choosing an appropriate time for your conference. According to The Verge’s Tom Warren, Microsoft will host their E3 2018 briefing on Sunday, June 10, 2018, at 4 PM EDT. This is an hour earlier than their event for E3 2017 last June.
The press briefing will probably be the first one among the console manufacturers given the fact that it takes place on a Sunday. Over the past several years, Microsoft has been criticized for the lack of exclusive games available on the Xbox One. While the generation started off on a strong note with titles such as Ryse: Son of Rome and Sunset Overdrive hitting the system, they quickly tapered off.

On many occasions, Microsoft has confirmed that the company has signed many new “AAA” games so hopefully we’ll get some announcements in a few months. Now that the company has the most powerful console on the market, it needs to focus on its game catalog. There is a rumored Fable game in the works alongside Forza Horizon 4. Hopefully other exclusives from third-party developers will also be revealed during the event.
The Xbox One has come a long way since its 2013 reveal but there is still work to be done. Hopefully Microsoft will be able to impress gamers on June 10.
