Publisher Square Enix is joining the likes of Bethesda, Ubisoft, and EA, by hosting its own dedicated press conference at E3.
The media briefing is due to take place on Tuesday, June 16 at 9 AM, which is traditionally the time slot Nintendo uses for its own press conference. Whether the two will clash is not clear, for now, as Nintendo has yet to reveal its own timings.
The publisher’s bid to arrange and pay for its own press conference will trigger speculation regarding the scale of its announcements. Square Enix has not hosted a media briefing at E3 since 2012, where it showcased its next-gen Luminous Engine for the first time.
Major AAA projects in development at Square Enix include Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, Final Fantasy XV, Rise of the Tomb Raider, and a new Hitman project. It is not clear whether the publisher is preparing to reveal other major projects beyond this.
