The Entertainment Software Association has announced the dates for next year’s Electronic Entertainment Expo.
E3 2019 will take place from June 11-13 at the Los Angeles Convention Center, the ESA announced today.
This year’s expo comes to a close today after drawing in more than 69,200 attendees who saw over 200 exhibitors, 85 of which were showing at E3 for the first time. ESA President and CEO Michael D. Gallagher called E3 2018 “an enormous success that “reinforced the cultural prominence of video games for a global audience.”
Cyberpunk 2077 has been one of the most-talked about games at this year’s show. During E3 2018, IGN’s coverage included first-hand impressions of the Cyberpunk 2077 E3 demo, some more gameplay details here, or about CD Projekt’s response to the first-person backlash here.
Fortnite was also one of the biggest games at this year’s show, and publisher Epic Games added that E3 is a great venue for “bringing players together.” Many of the game’s fans, however, were upset by the E3 announcement that PlayStation 4 players would not be able to carry their profiles over to the newly announced and released Fortnite Switch version.
