What's coming from... Square-Enix

Square-Enix didn’t have a huge presence at E3 2017, but 2018 will be a huge year for the Japanese publisher so it's unsurprising that the publisher has announced its very own showcase for June 11 at 10am PT/ 6pm BST. The Final Fantasy 7 Remake (or at least the first episode) should be one of its biggest selling points, as this’ll mark three years since its official announcement in 2015.

Kingdom Hearts 3 is also due to drop in 2018, and with Square-Enix having re-released every other entry with increasingly nonsensical subtitles, it’s time for something new. With Toy Story and Big Hero 6-themed worlds already confirmed, fans are already chomping at the bit for time with Sora, Donald and Goofy.

Then there’s the Tomb Raider sequel, Shadow Of The Tomb Raider. With Eidos Montreal (of rebooted Deus Ex fame) in the development hot seat and Uncharted having coming along with two outstanding entries since Rise Of The Tomb Raider, we’re fully expecting Lady Croft to take back her treasure hunting crown from Nate, Chloe and Nadine.
What's coming from... Ubisoft

Ubisoft has now confirmed that its press conference will be taking place on June 11 at 1pm PT/ 9pm BST.

Outside of more details on the now-confirmed Assassin's Creed Odyssey, we’re fully expecting Ubisoft to roll out the only other remaining Tom Clancy franchise worth its salt: Splinter Cell. With Michael Ironside rumoured to be returning to voice Sam Fisher, we’re excited to see a post-MGSV Splinter Cell and how it improve on the grossly underrated Blacklist. We also expect to see a little more information on The Division 2 now that it's been confirmed.

Then there’s the big one: Beyond Good & Evil 2. This was the surprise reveal of E3 2017, and while the game is certainly in the early stages of its development, 2018 will mark the original game’s 20th anniversary, so we’re hoping for a little more insight into its world and the nature of the game to come. Oh, and could we see Rainbow Six Siege 2? With one of the biggest communities outside of COD and Battlefield, a follow up on Siege could well breach its way onto the stage in LA.
What's coming from... Sony

Sony has now confirmed that its press conference will take place on Monday June 11 at 6pm PT/ 2am BST.

With PS4 Pro having already been introduced fewer than two years prior to E3 2018 - effectively extending the lifecycle of the generation by a good few years at least - we won't be hearing anything major on the hardware front. We’d bet our houses that PS5 is already in early development, but Shawn Layden has already confirmed that no hardware will appear at the show.

He's also confirmed that the presentation will focus on four main Sony exclusives: Death Stranding, Ghost of Tsushima, Spider-Man and The Last of Us Part 2. Fans can expect deep dives, development updates and new trailer for all of these titles as well as announcements from third-party publishers and indie developers.

Before the show even starts, Sony has revealed that from June 6 until the day of the showcase it'll be making a daily announcement. These announcements will include new game reveals, a release date announcements and some PS VR support confirmation.
A PlayStation blog post, published June 4th, details the upcoming announcements in the run-up to E3 2018. Aptly named the “Countdown to E3”, every day will feature a new announcement:

Wednesday, June 6th – Announce: New PS4 Game With PS VR Support

Friday, June 8th – Announce: New PS4 Game
Saturday, June 9th – Announce: New PS VR Game
Sunday, June 10th – Details: An Eagerly Anticipated Game Comes to PS VR

All announcements and details will be released at 8AM Pacific Time on PlayStation’s livestream, available on Twitch, Youtube, Facebook, or PlayStation’s website. It’s currently unclear what form the information will take – announcements could be made through Sony’s representatives, trailers, or both.
