Every year, E3 aims to be the biggest show in video gaming, full of in-depth game previews and brand new game announcements. Since video game publishers like to surprise their audiences with game announcements at their E3 press conferences, many of the games that will be at the show are kept secret, though there are many more that are announced ahead of time.
At the time of this writing, there are nearly 30 games confirmed for E3 2019. Some of these games will be featured during the event's high profile press conferences, whereas others will only be seen by those on the show floor. Most of these games have yet to be released, but some are out now and will have new content announced at E3.
Here are all the E3 2019 games revealed so far.
- Borderlands 3
It's been seven years since Borderlands 2, so fans of the looter-shooter franchise are no doubt excited to get their hands on Borderlands 3. The recent Borderlands 3 gameplay reveal event gave fans their first in-depth look at what the long-awaited sequel will have to offer, but even more information on the game should come to light at E3 2019 in June.
- Call of Duty: Modern Warfare
We've known for some time that Call of Duty 2019 would be at E3 2019, but now we know that Call of Duty 2019 is in fact Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. A reboot of the Modern Warfare franchise, fans expect to take a deep dive into what Call of Duty: Modern Warfare has to offer when the game is showcased at E3 Coliseum on June 11.
- Doom Eternal
Bethesda is going through somewhat of a rough patch. Not only did Fallout 76 flop after it was the company's main showcase for E3 2018, but The Elder Scrolls: Blades is also struggling to win over fans. E3 2019 presents an opportunity for Bethesda to repair its image after months of PR missteps, and it will be interesting to see what the company brings to the table. Right now, the only confirmed game is the crowd-pleasing Doom Eternal, which looks like a worthy followup to the 2016 Doom reboot based on what we've seen so far.
- Bee Simulator
- Farmer's Dynasty
- The Fisherman - Fishing Planet
- Paranoia: Happiness is Mandatory
- The Sinking City
- Werewolf: The Apocalypse - Earthblood
- WRC 8
French video game company Bigben Interactive may not be the most noteworthy publisher at E3 2019, but the company has been around since the early 80's, making it one of the oldest video game companies in the industry. Arguably the most noteworthy game Bigben will showcase at E3 2019 is The Sinking City, a horror game based on the mind-bending works of H.P. Lovecraft.
- Monster Hunter World
Video game fans can usually count on Capcom when it comes to E3 surprises. E3 2016 saw Capcom reveal Resident Evil 7, E3 2017 included the first look at Monster Hunter World, and E3 2018 was where the company finally announced the Resident Evil 2 remake. Rumors point to Capcom announcing a Resident Evil 3: Nemesis remake at E3, but that has yet to be confirmed. The only game Capcom has confirmed will be at E3 2019 for sure is Monster Hunter World, where the publisher is expected to reveal more about its upcoming Iceborne expansion.
CD Projekt Red
- Cyberpunk 2077
CD Projekt Red's Cyberpunk 2077 turned heads at E3 2018, and it will be exciting to see how far the project has come since then. Often listed as one of the most anticipated video games, Cyberpunk 2077 is especially exciting when one considers the likely possibility that it is a cross-gen title. If Microsoft announces its next-generation Xbox consoles at E3 2019 as some analysts have predicted, perhaps we will get to see Cyberpunk 2077 running on the new hardware.
Warframe from Digital Extremes has had surprisingly strong legs, with the free-to-play shooter still popular to this day. Fans of the game should be able to get a peak at what's next for Warframe when the game is featured at E3 2019.
- Apex Legends
- Battlefield V
- FIFA 20
- Madden NFL 20
- Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order
- The Sims 4
Like Bethesda, Electronic Arts is struggling with an image problem after the Star Wars Battlefront 2 loot box controversy and the Anthem drama. EA is opting out of a traditional press conference for E3 2019, but the company will look to win fans over with news on Anthem's future, a possible new Apex Legends character, more content for Battlefield V, and the very first Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order gameplay footage.
Epic Games has confirmed that the battle royale sensation Fortnite, arguably the biggest video game in the world right now, will in fact be at E3 2019. Fortnite will be featured during the Block Party event, which will take place from June 14 to June 15, and include the second annual Fortnite Celebrity Pro-Am competition.
- Planet Zoo
Zoo Tycoon fans will want to keep an eye on Planet Zoo. The game is being touted as a spiritual successor to the Zoo Tycoon franchise, with one of the main selling points being realistic animal AI. Whether or not it works as intended remains to be seen, but we should get a good idea come E3.
- Ary and the Secret of Seasons
- Bear With Me: The Lost Robots
- Lost Words: Beyond the Page
- Trine 4: The Nightmare Prince
While most of these games are fairly low profile compared to others on this list, Trine 4: The Nightmare Prince is the latest game in the long-running puzzle/co-op/platformer series, and should be pretty exciting for fans of that franchise.
- Cosmic Defenders
- Harvest Moon: Mad Dash
- Reel Fishing: Road Trip Adventure
Natsume will be bringing the next game in the Harvest Moon franchise to E3 2019. It's called Harvest Moon: Mad Dash, and it is coming to PS4 and Switch.
- Stranger Things 3: The Game
In an unexpected turn of events, video streaming giant Netflix has announced that it will be at E3 2019. Netflix will be at E3 to show off Stranger Things 3: The Game, in addition to other video game projects based on its original series.
- Luigi's Mansion 3
- Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order
- Pokemon Sword and Shield
- Splatoon 2
- Super Mario Maker 2
- Super Smash Bros. Ultimate
- The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening
Nintendo has confirmed already-released Switch titles for the show, with Splatoon 2 and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate set to be featured in special competitive gaming events. If past E3 events are anything to go by, it's likely that Nintendo will use these competitions to announce new DLC for both Splatoon 2 and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, so fans of those games should be sure to tune in to those events as well as the E3 2019 Nintendo Direct presentation on June 11.
Super Mario Maker 2 will also have a competitive event at E3. Meanwhile, Pokemon Sword and Shield are set to be featured in the E3 2019 Nintendo Direct presentation, as is Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order, Luigi's Mansion 3, and more.
- The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel 3
Originally released in Japan in 2017, The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel 3 is finally making it to other parts of the world later this year. Fans of the JRPG franchise should learn more about its western localization at E3.
- Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines 2
Vampire: The Masquerade is a cult classic when it comes to horror games, so there's a great deal of hype for Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines 2. E3 2019 should give fans a deeper look at the game, and leave them with a good idea as to whether or not it will live up to original's impressive reputation.
- The Outer Worlds
Microsoft acquired Obsidian Entertainment, but before the studio can focus on Microsoft-exclusives, it will still need to finish work on The Outer Worlds for Private Division. Drawing comparisons to Bethesda's Fallout franchise, The Outer Worlds has a great deal of hype behind it, and it will be interesting to see more of the game come E3.
- Evil Genius 2
2004's Evil Genius is a cult classic strategy game that was notable for its strong sense of humor. Rebellion Developments is looking to revive the series with Evil Genius 2, and fans should get their next substantial look at it at E3 2019.
- Marvel's Avengers
After teasing the game on Twitter, Square Enix has confirmed that Marvel's Avengers will be at E3 2019. The game will reportedly feature 4-player co-op, a continuous online world, hero customization, and more. Fans can expect to see more of the game during Square Enix's E3 2019 press conference and at a special E3 Coliseum event on June 11.
Besides Marvel's Avengers, Square Enix is also confirmed to be showing a new science-fiction IP at the event called Outriders.
- Psychonauts 2
Starbreeze Studios may be running into some financial difficulty as of late, but that's not stopping the studio from bringing Psychonauts 2 to E3. And not only will E3 2019 showcase Psychonauts 2, but Jack Black will be at E3 to help promote the game as well, sparking speculation that he may be involved with it as a voice actor or in some other capacity.
- Dying Light 2
Dying Light 2 was met with enthusiasm when the open world zombie game was first announced at E3 2018. We haven't seen a lot on the game since then, but Techland is promising to bring Dying Light 2 back in full-force for E3 2019. If fans are lucky, we may even be treated to a Dying Light 2 release date announcement at the show, though that's just speculation at this time.
The PC Gaming Show will be showcasing over 30 games at its E3 2019 press conference, and one of those games is a rather intriguing title from Tripwire Interactive called Maneater. Described as a "shaRkPG," the Maneater game will put players in the role of man-eating sharks.
- For Honor
- Rainbow Six Siege
- The Division 2
- Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Breakpoint
- Watch Dogs Legion
Ubisoft will undoubtedly have new games to announce at its E3 2019 press conference, but it will also be offering updates to a variety of its ongoing titles like For Honor, Rainbow Six Siege, and The Division 2. One new game that we know for sure fans will get a look at is Ghost Recon Breakpoint, which stars Jon Bernthal and is due for release on October 4.
Wizards of the Coast
- Baldur's Gate 3
Announced as part of the first ever Google Stadia Connect event, Baldur's Gate 3 is a sequel 20 years in the making. Developed by Divinity: Original Sin developer Larian Studios, fans can look forward to learning even more about Baldur's Gate 3 at E3 2019. Whether or not it will be featured in any of the major press conferences remains to be seen, however.
Xbox Game Studios
- Gears 5
- Halo Infinite
- Halo: The Master Chief Collection
Microsoft has promised to "go big" at E3 2019 as it's looking to capitalize on Sony's absence. The possibility that Microsoft will announce its next-generation Xbox console has fans buzzing, but many are also looking forward to a proper look at Halo Infinite, which is rumored to be a cross-generational title. Halo: The Master Chief Collection for PC is also expected to be on display, as is Gears 5, which will most likely have a release date announcement at the show.
- Akiba's Trip: Hellbound & Debriefed
- BurgerTime Party!
- Rune Factory 4 Special
- Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin
- Senran Kagura: Peach Ball
It's true that E3 is a western-centric show, but that doesn't mean Japanese games won't be on display as well. At E3 2019, Xseed will be displaying a variety of Japanese games that it will be localizing in the west, including Akiba's Trip: Hellbound & Debriefed and Rune Factory 4 Special, the Switch port of the well-received 3DS game.
