At the Los Angeles Convention Center of course, but aha ha a last-minute hitch will deprive you too of that happiness. The live gaming platform Twitch, as well as YouTube Gaming will show the conferences – dig a little bit to see how it goes and in what language – otherwise the French gamers community that is also mobilized will be on your favorite gaming site.
Obviously, everyone has their preferences and all these are only hypotheses. Let’s take a look at what could happen, with big conferences announced for Microsoft, Sony and Ubisoft.
Electonic Arts – Presents a lot of games not really SF (football, racing). We are expecting a lot of hype around Star Wars and Battlefront 2.
Microsoft / XBox: Announces a conference longer than the traditional 90 minutes. Objective: to show the next powerful Xbox Scorpio console , its native 4K and the games that go with it. Battlefront 2 and Red Dead Redemption 2 might be concerned.
Bethesda – Wolfenstein The New Order and Evil Within 2, and why not The Elder Scrolls?
Ubisoft – Big machines in sight: Assassin’s Creed Origins and Farcry 5, baoum! And South Park The annals of fate. Some new features for the Switch including the Rabbit Rabbids ( Battle Rabbids Kingdom ) who will obviously be entitled to a cross with … Mario. And the end-of-conference surprise Ubisoft.
Sony / PlayStation – The Last of Us 2 with the first images of the game would be super nice. Spider-Man has been confirmed, Red Dead Redemption 2, Bully 2, God of War, we hope the news from Detroit: Become Human.
Death Stranding and Shenmue 3 have withdrawn for 2017.
Nintendo Spotlight is not a conference, but rather a showcase. We expect something new for their console Switch, including the return of Mario.
