Over the last few years, Microsoft has been fond of telling us that "this year's E3 will be our biggest yet". We might argue how true that's been in terms of quality, but not in terms of length. The Xbox briefing lasted for 90 minutes in 2016, 96 minutes the year after if we don't count the opening montage, and 98 minutes last year thanks to the Cyberpunk 2077 trailer. Many started wondering if Microsoft would put as much effort into this year's conference after the folks over at Sony announced they weren't going to E3, but Phil Spencer quickly made it clear that wouldn't be the case. It seems like he wasn't kidding.
Xbox Brazil has announced that this year's Xbox E3 briefing will last for two hours, which makes it approximately twenty minutes longer that last year's exciting show. Why would they need all this time? Well, we know Gears 5 and Halo Infinite will be there, some of their new studios will show what they're working on, Ori and the Will of the Wisps seems like a sure bet, it's time for an update from Cuphead: The Delicious Last Course, we might hear a few extra details about Xbox Scarlett now that Sony has started sharing information about the next PlayStation, CD Projekt Red might want to give us a taste of their new Cyberpunk 2077 demo and it might be time to unveil the long rumoured Fable game Playground is working on. Those are just a few examples of why we think Microsoft won't have any problems filling the 120 minutes with exciting announcements, so we're definitely excited.
How about you? What do you want to see during those two hours on June 9?
