E3 2021 Schedule | Major Events and Conferences

There are a number of different conferences and events scheduled for E3 2021. Keeping up with all of them is an immense task, which is why we’ve listed the triple-A highlights below.

  • June 10
    • Summer Game Fest (11AM PT/2PM ET)
      • A series of conferences hosted by Geoff Keighley. Not an official E3 event, but with companies like Activision and Epic Games attending, expect new announcements.
  • June 12
    • Devolver Digital (TBC)
      • Perhaps best known for the modern Serious Sam releases, all that’s confirmed so far is that Devolver Digital will attend E3. The company announced a new IP last year, so expect an update on that.
    • Ubisoft (12PM PT/3PM ET)
    • Gearbox (TBC)
      • No concrete information yet, but expect details on the Borderlands movie filming now as well as the rumored spin-off game.
  • June 13
    • Xbox/Bethesda (10AM PT/1PM ET)
      • Hot off its Bethesda acquisition, Xbox will be looking to bolster its first-party output this E3. Expect Deathloop gameplay, and if we’re lucky, a look at Starfield.
    • Square Enix (12:15 PT/3:15 ET)
      • Teasing a “world premiere” announcement, expectations are high for the Square Enix presentation. Expect a triple-A reveal as well as details on Spider-Man in Marvel’s Avengers, plus a look at Life is Strange: True Colors.
    • Warner Bros.
      • Last year, WB announced a Suicide Squad game, a new Batman title, and a Gollum game – so expect gameplay and trailers for all of these.
  • June 14
    • Take-Two (TBD)
      • The Rockstar subsidiary will likely disclose info on GTA Online’s current-generation ports, due for release later this year.
  • June 15
    • Nintendo Direct (9AM PT/10PM ET)
      • This conference is purely looking at software, not the much-rumored Switch Pro. With whispers about a Zelda sequel circulating, this could be a big one.

With all these conferences, as well as presentations from Devolver Digital and Capcom, expect an E3 unlike any other.
