While we all wait to receive confirmation on some of these upcoming products, information has been issued by industry companies through articles and videos providing us with a glimpse of what’s to come.

In this article, we’ll outline the most anticipated video games of 2019.

But first …

E3 Event in LA

Who is E3?

E3, or Electronic Entertainment Expo, has been around a LONG time. Don’t worry, though, if you haven’t heard of them before. They’re more recognized by industry professionals, and publishers thereof, than the average person.

What do they do? Since 1995, they’ve held large annual events here in the US to bring together 10s of thousands of interactive entertainment leaders in one place to reveal new products and technology advancements with the intent to gain public exposure for their brand. Only recently have they (again) allowed for any of the public to actually attend the conference. Passes are limited, when available, but if you think you might want access, you can learn more on E3’s website.
