Will Xbox still the show at E3 2019?
With Sony and EA out of the way at E3 2019, Microsoft has a huge opportunity to grab the spotlight and turn out as the ‘winner’ at this year’s event. That could become a possibility as Xbox head Phil Spencer confirms that Microsoft’s E3 2019 press conference will feature a whopping 14 first-party titles from Xbox Game Studios.
In his tweet, Spencer stated that Microsoft will show off “more first party games than we’ve ever had in the show.” In comparison, last year’s E3 2018 had the company show a gazillion world exclusive announcements, only a handful of which were even first-party Xbox exclusives.
Just finishing our final E3 rehearsal here with the team in Redmond. Feel really good about the briefing. Lots to show. We have 14 Xbox Game Studios games in the show this year, more first party games than we’ve ever had in the show. Fun times. #XboxE3
