With just over a month and a half to go until E3, more publishers are keen to reveal their plans for next month's annual extravaganza. Several companies including EA, Bethesda, and Microsoft have announced dates and times for their press conferences, and Microsoft has gone into even more detail on the official Xbox blog.
As noted, Xbox's E3 2016 briefing will take place on Monday, June 13, at 930a PDT / 1230p EDT. Microsoft will focus on "in-depth looks" at previously announced games and trailers for unannounced games due out this year and even later. "You can watch the Xbox E3 2016 Briefing live beginning at 9:30 a.m. PDT on June 13 on Xbox.com, the Xbox Twitch Channel, via the Xbox Live Events Player on Xbox One and Xbox 360 consoles, or on the big screen at your local Microsoft store," per Xbox.com.
Microsoft's broadcasting schedule only heats up from there. On June 14 and 15, Xbox Daily: LIVE @ E3, a one-hour show hosted by Microsoft personalities including Larry "Major Nelson" Hryb. The show will feature interviews with developers as well as announcements. Look for it at 4p PDT / 7p EDT on Tuesday and Wednesday of E3 week.
That's all the stuff everyone expects from console manufacturers at E3. But reports surfaced last week that Microsoft would announce new Xbox hardware at the conference—an upgrade to Xbox One, or a proper successor, teased by console chief Phil Spencer, who stated explicitly that he doesn't like the idea of moving consoles forward in half steps. If that's going to happen, it'll go down during the briefing on June 13.
