E3 2018 Set To Kick-Off On June 12th And Will End June 14th
(Last Updated On: June 16, 2017)

E3 2017 has finally ended and is now over and done with. While the event may have ended, other forms of information pertaining to the convention and games relating to E3 may come out of the aftermath, but for the most part this means that the overseers of the convention are now prepping to get E3 2018 underway. A starting and end date has been revealed as of recent.

According to publication site IGN, the site posted up a new image showing the dates for E3 2018. Next year’s convention is set to kick-off on June 12th and will end on June 14th, 2018. You can check out the image showing the announcement and date for E3 2018 below.

It is said that the organization had counted 68,400 people in attendance at E3 2017, which is said to be up by 18,100 from last year’s 50,300 attendees. I should note, though, that this year of E3 was open to the public through the purchase of tickets.

Moreover, publication site GameSpot noted that the ESA CEO Mike Gallagher said in an interview this week that the organization may pursue other options if the Los Angels Convention Center does not modernize or update the facility.

In addition to the above, Gallagher said he hopes the convention center will undergo reconstruction and renovations to increase the floor space and make the hall much more appealing and “contiguous”. As of now, there are two main halls that stand to be the West and South section, which are separated by a long hallway.

Something worth noting is that the ESA did not mention in its press release, according to GameSpot, if it will sell public tickets in 2018. During the interview, Gallagher said the ESA will gather information and feedback about E3 2017 from attendees and publishers before making further announcement about the format for 2018’s E3.

    Hopefully next year will be a little better. This years E3 was kinda lackluster. The only one I really paid attention to was Xbox. Nintendo’s was.. okay, and the announcement of a Metroid Prime 4 did get me happy, but eh.. I still don’t see a reason to own a Switch at this moment. Maybe when there’s more software for it by the end of this year / start of next year. I don’t want a $300 paper weight with only Zelda to play on it.

    • RichardGristle

      I feel those sentiments. I think most people will consider Nintendo the “winner”, but even that seemed very mediocre. For me it was Microsoft since all their shit will be on PC.

      Very happy about Evil Within 2, but very disappointed in no REmake2 info.

      • MONAD

        I imagine we’ll learn more of the RE2 Remake either next year or Gamescom. I know we’ll get more FFVII Remake info during TGS, At least I hope we will. As far as Nintendo goes, I’ll probably wind up getting a Switch next year along with a PS4 Pro. Only reason why I’m waiting this long is for the library for the Switch to build. The PS4 Pro? I’m waiting until I get a 4k display in January.

      Nintendo was very disappointing to me. I was hoping they would shower us with third parties, even if it was just indies, but there wasn’t even that. There was mostly Rocket League and Skyrim, both old games, and that’s it. This is terrible because I know there are lots of indies developing for the Switch, it just seems Nintendo is not keen on showing them and preferred doing a 30 minutes presentation of a “Nintendo Machine” instead. It seems they don’t want to let go of their family friendly image… this can spell doom for the Switch on the long run…

      • MONAD

        Agreed. We want new experiences. Not the same old ones re-released time and time again. Yep. The Family Friendly thing will come back to bite the Big N in the ass sooner or later. I know most hardcore gamers won’t even touch the thing because of how much of a toy it looks like.

        • But there’s always going to be a new generation of kids who want to play Nintendo stuff. They’ll be fine catering to that demographic because it never goes away. In fact, there are a bunch of parents still going out and trying to find the Switch for their kids if you read up on the comments on places like NowInStock. One guy was saying that his two kids just kept begging him for one.

          Minecraft + Switch = money printing machine.

          From a financial point of view, they technically don’t have to do a darn thing for the 18+ audience, because they’re already soaking up saturation with younger gamers.

          Hopefully Nintendo attempts to cater to both audiences like they did with the Wii.
