E3 2021 organizer the Entertainment Software Association (ESA) recently shared a new-and-improved schedule for the event -- and now it has highlighted exactly what to expect today, the second day of the event. When the first real E3 2021 schedule was released, it was a bit vague on details beyond some announced conferences and a general idea of what day what companies might present something, but the latest and greatest schedule eschews vagueness for specific and direct times for... well, everything. Thanks to the new schedule, we now know exactly when all of the various E3 conferences and presentations will be.
Specifically, you can check out the schedule for Day 2 below:
LIVE with Day 2 of #E32021:
9:15am PT Pre-Show— E3 (@E3) June 13, 2021
9:30am 24 Entertainment's NARAKA: BLADEPOINT
10am Xbox & Bethesda Games Showcase
12:15pm SQUARE ENIX
2pm Warner Bros. Games' Back 4 Blood
2:30pm PC Gaming Show
4pm Future Games Show https://t.co/i9b4PMRGbU
Notably, some previously unknown inclusions prior to the new schedule are the Warner Bros. Games' Back 4 Blood presentation on Sunday, June 13th, at 5PM ET/2PM PT, the Take-Two Interactive panel on Monday, June 14th, at 1:15PM ET/10:15AM PT, and the Bandai Namco Entertainment spot on Tuesday, June 15th, at 5:25PM ET/2:25PM PT. Capcom also officially announced today that its showcase would be on Monday, June 14th, at 5:30PM ET/2:30PM PT.
While the exact times of all these presentations are helpful and nice, the number of unknowns in terms of what, exactly, might be announced is astronomical. It seems to be that most companies are weighing how much to hype things up versus being clear. Warner Bros. Games, for example, has seemingly been pretty definitive about only showcasing Back 4 Blood while Square Enix has been clear that there is at least one big video game reveal coming during its own presentation. What that might be remains a matter of speculation.
As noted above, E3 2021 is set to take place online from June 12th through June 15th. That includes streaming press conferences in addition to a four-day video stream. The live broadcast will be hosted by Greg Miller, Jacki Jing, and Alex "Goldenboy" Mendez and will include press conferences, game reveals and announcements, developer interviews, panels, and more.
