With just about a month to go before E3 2018 kicks off, Microsoft is continuing to tease what’s in store for its briefing at the big-time gaming show. After suggesting that games from Japanese publishers will be on stage, Microsoft has now teased its showing even more. In a blog post today, Microsoft’s Mike Nichols said the company has a “great briefing filled with new games” on tap.
“We’re hard at work on exciting plans for E3, from what will be a great briefing filled with new games to the fan experience at the Microsoft Theater,” Nichols said. “This is our biggest E3 yet, and we look forward to a great week for gamers. Again, thank you to the amazing Xbox community.”
Microsoft’s E3 2018 briefing takes place on Sunday, June 11, starting at 1 PM PT / 4 PM ET. Whereas last year we knew that Xbox One X (then Project Scorpio) would be a major highlight, we know relatively less about this year’s show.
In January, Spencer said that there would be some “positive changes” at E3 for Microsoft, which could have been a reference to the company’s decision to hire out the nearby Microsoft Theatre. Microsoft will still have a presence on the E3 show floor, but it will be dedicated to Mixer exclusively, while the rest of the activities take place across the street in the Microsoft Theatre.
One possible announcement from Microsoft this year is Halo 6, which has been discussed but not formally revealed. Microsoft is also said to be working on a PlayStation Now-like game-streaming service. Keep checking back with GameSpot for more on E3 2018 in the days and weeks ahead.
