Microsoft has provided some insight into the runtime of today's Xbox E3 2019 press conference--and it's about the same as last year. Xbox marketing boss Aaron Greenberg recently mentioned on Twitter that the show is under two hours long. Last year's briefing ran for 1 hour and 38 minutes.

"We are actually under 2 hours," Greenberg said on Twitter. "[The] team put together a high quality show. Excited to share with our fans and see the reactions!"

Based on further evidence, including YouTube's E3 Live schedule, it looks as if it will be no longer than 1 hour and 40 minutes. That's plenty of time to make good on its recent next-gen Xbox scarlet tease and let us out in time for Bethesda's conference later today.

Microsoft is packing in a lot in under two hours. The company is showing off 14 titles from Xbox studios, including Halo Infinite and Gears 5, in addition to whatever the company has to share from third-party developers. On top of games, Microsoft is expected to announce one or two next-generation consoles, and also share more details about its game-streaming service, xCloud.

In terms of rumored reveals, Microsoft is said to reveal a next-generation Fable game from Forza Horizon developer Playground, while the Microsoft-owned Ninja Theory is rumored to announce its sci-fi game, Bleeding Edge, during the show. That game was one of the many things that's been leaked recently, but it'll still be exciting to see it in further detail.

The Xbox E3 2019 briefing is scheduled for Sunday, June 9, beginning at 1 PM PT / 4 PM ET. That's 9 PM BST in the UK, while gamers in Australia can watch the show beginning at 6 AM ET on June 10.
