To Avoid Nintendo Conflict, Square Enix Moves Its E3 Press Conference

Square Enix delays its E3 press briefing by an hour.


Square Enix has moved the time of its E3 press briefing, avoiding a conflict with Nintendo.

The Final Fantasy publisher will now host its briefing on June 16 at 10 AM PDT. That's an hour later than the 9 AM start time it had previously announced--something that immediately raised questions, considering that is traditionally the spot occupied by Nintendo.

Nintendo this week confirmed it will broadcast its E3 digital event at 9 AM. Companies typically avoid hosting E3 events at the same time as each other, and with Square Enix now moving its event, there will be no overlap.

Square Enix hasn't yet announced everything we'll be seeing during its briefing; among the projects it has in the works are Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, Final Fantasy XV, Rise of the Tomb Raider, and a new Hitman.

Sony today announced it will occupy its usual timeslot on June 15, giving us a full E3 press briefing schedule, which you can see below. GameSpot will be reporting live from E3 all week.
