Microsoft’s E3 2015 briefing next month will be 90 minutes long, about the standard runtime for the company’s yearly event, Xbox boss Phil Spencer recently confirmed on Twitter.
Spencer went on to say that Microsoft’s E3 planning team recently completed a rough run-through of the event. It was too long, and edits will need to be made.
“We did a rough end to end run of show yesterday–still too long,” Spencer said. “I like the games we have in the show, not easy to edit it down.”
Spencer didn’t say if any announcements will need to be cut entirely to keep the event down to 90 minutes. But that’s possible, given Microsoft has already said it’s saving some reveals for Gamescom.
Microsoft has told fans to expect a different kind of Xbox E3 show this year, but we don’t yet know exactly what that means. The company has confirmed this year’s event will focus more on first-party games, while it is also planning to reveal new IP. Microsoft’s HoloLens headset will also make an appearance.
Overall, Microsoft appears to have huge plans for E3 2015, previously teasing that the show will highlight the “greatest games lineup in Xbox history.” What do you want to see at the show? Let us know in the comments below.
Microsoft’s E3 2015 briefing is scheduled for Monday, June 15, starting at 9:30 AM PDT. For more on E3 2015, check out the dates and times for all the press conferences.
