E3 2020 Schedule – When and Where to Watch Every Publisher Conference

e3 2020 conferences schedule

E3 2020 may not be going ahead in its usual form this summer, but that doesn’t mean there won’t be plenty to look out for in the world of big gaming news.

Host of The Game Awards Geoff Keighley has launched a brand new event called Summer Game Fest this year, which promises to bring together sixteen huge gaming names (including Microsoft, Sony, Activision, and more) for four whole months of gaming-related excitement.

And with special developer livestreams such as EA Play and a Cyberpunk 2077 themed broadcast from CD Projekt Red to look out for too, this summer promises to be jam-packed with exciting new stuff.

May

Xbox 20/20
7 May, 16:00 BST

The first of the monthly Xbox 20/20 conferences took place on 7 May, giving us our first glimpse of Xbox Series X gameplay and a ton of new games. We also got a deeper look at Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, which, we might add, contains some of the most fabulous beards we’ve ever seen.

Sunrise #1

Geoff Keighley will be hosting the surprise reveal of a new game… and for now that’s all we know.

June

PlayStation 5
11 June, 21:00 BST

Get ready for a peek at a slate of shiny new PS5 titles in Sony’s rescheduled livestream. And don’t forget to register your interest in the next-gen console for all the latest news and announcements from GAME.

EA Play Live
18 June, 23:59 BST

This year, Electronic Arts are holding their EA Play Live event wholly online, where they’ll be unveiling a selection of brand new games. There’ll be special community content to keep an eye out for too.

CD Projekt Red
25 June

Join CD Projekt Red, the studio behind the incredible The Witcher series for a special broadcast – Night City Wire, which is all about Cyberpunk 2077. We’ve got our fingers crossed for a Keanu Reeves appearance.

July

Xbox 20/20
TBC
Xbox focuses this time on games from Xbox Game Studios, with first glimpses of gameplay and brand new game reveals too. You can also register your interest in the Xbox Series X to make sure you’re up to date on the latest.

Ubisoft Forward
12 July, 20:00 BST
While there aren’t any concrete details just yet, Ubisoft are looking into running a “digital experience” at some stage, where hopefully we’ll get to see more of games like Watch Dogs: Legion and Gods & Monsters.

Nintendo Direct
TBC

Nothing’s been confirmed yet, but we’ve got our fingers crossed for another Nintendo Direct with sneak peeks at new and upcoming games this summer. Please, please tell us more about the Breath of the Wild sequel….

Square Enix
TBC

Square Enix usually have something to whet our appetites around E3 each year, so while we’re still waiting on an official confirmation, we’ve got our fingers crossed that there’ll be a livestream at some stage.

Bethesda
Probably not happening, sorry

While Bethesda usually have something exciting to show us around E3, this tweet from Pete Hines, Bethesda’s senior vice president of global marketing and communications suggests pretty concretely that we’re unlikely to get much this summer. That said, if you’re determined to be optimistic, this was posted on 1 April.

And that’s all that’s been confirmed for now, but keep checking back with us for the latest additions to the timeline.
