Great things are about to be unveiled in E3 2017, as companies are all looking forward to showcasing their products in the limelight. Historically, the event has been used by companies to gain the support of the gaming community to propel their products onto a whole new level. Surprisingly, this year's E3 will be different, as the organizers have listened to the requests of the gaming community and has opened its door to fans and players alike.

Microsoft's Briefing

According to Gamespot, Microsoft will be breaking its E3 tradition of having its briefing on Mondays of the E3 week. Instead, the company announced that their briefing would be held on a Sunday during the E3 week, specifically on June 11, 2017 at the Galen Center in Los Angeles, from 2 pm to 5 pm PST.

Although there is no official reason for this change, some are thinking that due to the marketing strategies and competition, the company has decided to take the limelight before everyone else. In a way, this move by the company can probably influence people from the gaming community and in the gaming industry as Microsoft may set the bar higher than expected.

What To Expect

Although Microsoft has already announced when they will be doing their briefing, it is unknown yet what the gaming giant would actually reveal. It is possible that the tech company would reveal a little bit more about Project Scorpio because as of now, little is known about the project, and this briefing would be perfect to reveal the real name of Project Scorpio along with its exact release date, specs and price.

Aside from Project Scorpio, fans may be able to get a sneak peak of the games and products that Microsoft plans to release this year and in the coming year. Phil Spencer, Head of Xbox, hints in a series of tweets that games this year will be different and that they will be exploring new experiences with different IP.

The E3 2017 is scheduled on June 14 to 16, 2017, and with Microsoft leading the charge, people can expect great things to be announced this year.
