Next week, the gaming world will descend upon Los Angeles for the massive Electronic Entertainment Expo trade show, where game companies will reveal their most anticipated releases along with a number of never-before-seen games.
Now, thanks to gameplay livestreaming site Twitch, we have a better idea of what to expect from E3, and that includes more than 20 new, unannounced games from the industry’s biggest publishers. Twitch is planning to broadcast a live show direct from E3 that will have a number of studios showing off their shiny new products, and the company released a schedule for the event that shines a light on what publishers like Nintendo and Microsoft will have.
Here’s a quick breakdown:
- 2K Games: Evolve, Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, and Civilization: Beyond Earth,
- Activision: Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare and Destiny
- Bethesda: 1 unannounced game and Evil Within
- Blizzard: Diablo III: Reaper of Souls – Ultimate Evil Edition

By the time Twitch gets around to streaming these games, the publishers would have already announced most (if not all) of them during their own respective press briefings. Still, Twitch might have a closer look at some of the titles if that’s what you want.
E3 is fast approaching. Starting Monday, June 9, companies like Microsoft, EA, Ubisoft, and Sony will host their big media briefings. We’ve already learned about games like Batman: Arkham Knight and Halo 5: Guardians, but these events will likely give us a lot more to get excited about. On Tuesday, June 10, we’ll get a look at Nintendo’s new games right before we head out to the show floor. We’ll have plenty of coverage right from L.A., so stay tuned.
