Companies are already getting ready for this year’s E3 and Microsoft confirmed their Xbox Briefing’s date and time; traditions have been broken.
Every year, Microsoft holds an important conference during E3. The event takes place prior to the doors of the show floor opening. Traditionally, Microsoft holds their conference in the morning, usually on a Monday around 8h30 or 9 AM. This year, the company is breaking the chains of tradition to hold the Xbox E3 2017 conference on Sunday, June 11, 2017 at 2:00 PM (PDT).
The announcement comes from a post made via Twitter on the official Xbox handle.

Although Microsoft is changing their date and time for the Briefing, the venue of choice remains the same as traditions wants it: The Galen Center. Also, it is important to mention that looking carefully at the caption of the tweet, it reads “Brace for big news.” This suggests that Microsoft will unveil something “big”. My guess: Project Scorpio will have its details shared. One thing goes without saying, we are looking forward to what Microsoft will announce.
What Should Microsoft Talk About during the Xbox E3 2017 Briefing?
I won’t put too much weight on that subject, because to be honest, there are many things that I would like Microsoft to talk about during their E3 conference. However, here are some of the top topic I believe shouldn’t be excluded:
- UWP: Universal Windows Platform (Xbox + Windows 10)
- New Xbox One exclusive titles (Forza, Killer Instinct, etc.)
- More information about exclusive games already announced (Crackdown 3, Phantom Dust, etc.)
- New Windows 10 gaming features
E3 takes place in June, in Los Angeles, so stay tuned as well keep you in the loop with the latest news.
