Every year, E3 aims to be the biggest show in video gaming, full of in-depth game previews and brand new game announcements. Since video game publishers like to surprise their audiences with game announcements at their E3 press conferences, many of the games that will be at the show are kept secret, though there are many more that are announced ahead of time.
At the time of this writing, there are nearly 30 games confirmed for E3 2019. Some of these games will be featured during the event’s high profile press conferences, whereas others will only be seen by those on the show floor. Most of these games have yet to be released, but some are out now and will have new content announced at E3.
Here are all the E3 2019 games revealed so far.
- Borderlands 3
It’s been seven years since Borderlands 2, so fans of the looter-shooter franchise are no doubt excited to get their hands on Borderlands 3. The recent Borderlands 3 gameplay reveal event gave fans their first in-depth look at what the long-awaited sequel will have to offer, but even more information on the game should come to light at E3 2019 in June.
- Doom Eternal
Bethesda is going through somewhat of a rough patch. Not only did Fallout 76 flop after it was the company’s main showcase for E3 2018, but The Elder Scrolls: Blades is also struggling to win over fans. E3 2019 presents an opportunity for Bethesda to repair its image after months of PR missteps, and it will be interesting to see what the company brings to the table. Right now, the only confirmed game is the crowd-pleasing Doom Eternal, which looks like a worthy followup to the 2016 Doom reboot based on what we’ve seen so far.
- Bee Simulator
- Farmer’s Dynasty
- The Fisherman – Fishing Planet
- Paranoia: Happiness is Mandatory
- The Sinking City
- Werewolf: The Apocalypse – Earthblood
- WRC 8
French video game company Bigben Interactive may not be the most noteworthy publisher at E3 2019, but the company has been around since the early 80’s, making it one of the oldest video game companies in the industry. Arguably the most noteworthy game Bigben will showcase at E3 2019 is The Sinking City, a horror game based on the mind-bending works of H.P. Lovecraft.
- Monster Hunter World
Video game fans can usually count on Capcom when it comes to E3 surprises. E3 2016 saw Capcom reveal Resident Evil 7, E3 2017 included the first look at Monster Hunter World, and E3 2018 was where the company finally announced the Resident Evil 2 remake. Rumors point to Capcom announcing a Resident Evil 3: Nemesis remake at E3, but that has yet to be confirmed. The only game Capcom has confirmed will be at E3 2019 for sure is Monster Hunter World, where the publisher is expected to reveal more about its upcoming Iceborne expansion.
CD Projekt Red
- Cyberpunk 2077
CD Projekt Red’s Cyberpunk 2077 turned heads at E3 2018, and it will be exciting to see how far the project has come since then. Often listed as one of the most anticipated video games, Cyberpunk 2077 is especially exciting when one considers the likely possibility that it is a cross-gen title. If Microsoft announces its next-generation Xbox consoles at E3 2019 as some analysts have predicted, perhaps we will get to see Cyberpunk 2077 running on the new hardware.
- Apex Legends
- Battlefield V
- Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order
Like Bethesda, Electronic Arts is struggling with an image problem after the Star Wars Battlefront 2 loot box controversy and the Anthem drama. EA is opting out of a traditional press conference for E3 2019, but the company will look to win fans over with news on Anthem‘s future, a possible new Apex Legends character, more content for Battlefield V, and the very first Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order gameplay footage.
Epic Games has confirmed that the battle royale sensation Fortnite, arguably the biggest video game in the world right now, will in fact be at E3 2019. Fortnite will be featured during the Block Party event, which will take place from June 14 to June 15, and include the second annual Fortnite Celebrity Pro-Am competition.
- Stranger Things 3: The Game
In an unexpected turn of events, video streaming giant Netflix has announced that it will be at E3 2019. Netflix will be at E3 to show off Stranger Things 3: The Game, in addition to other video game projects based on its original series.
- Splatoon 2
- Super Mario Maker 2
- Super Smash Bros. Ultimate
Nintendo is keeping tight-lipped about what games it will be bringing to E3 2019. The Big N has mostly confirmed already-released Switch titles for the show, with Splatoon 2 and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate set to be featured in special competitive gaming events. If past E3 events are anything to go by, it’s likely that Nintendo will use these competitions to announce new DLC for both Splatoon 2 and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, so fans of those games should be sure to tune in to those events as well as the E3 2019 Nintendo Direct presentation on June 11.
The only other Switch game confirmed for E3 is Super Mario Maker 2, which will also have a competitive event at E3.
- Dying Light 2
Dying Light 2 was met with enthusiasm when the open world zombie game was first announced at E3 2018. We haven’t seen a lot on the game since then, but Techland is promising to bring Dying Light 2 back in full-force for E3 2019. If fans are lucky, we may even be treated to a Dying Light 2 release date announcement at the show, though that’s just speculation at this time.
Xbox Game Studios
- Halo Infinite
Microsoft has promised to “go big” at E3 2019 as it’s looking to capitalize on Sony’s absence. The possibility that Microsoft will announce its next-generation Xbox console has fans buzzing, but many are also looking forward to a proper look at Halo Infinite, which is rumored to be a cross-generational title.
E3 2019 will take place from June 11 to June 13 in Los Angeles, California.
