Microsoft has announced its E3 2015 press conference will take place on June 15, starting at 9:30 AM PDT.

According to the platform holder, the briefing will give viewers the chance to "check out everything from in-depth looks at previously-announced games to trailers for our unannounced titles coming in 2015 and beyond."

As with previous years, the Xbox E3 2015 briefing will be streamed on Xbox.com, viewable through the Xbox Live Events Player, on the Xbox One and Xbox 360, as well as on Windows Phone.

The event will also be available to watch during "Xbox: Game On" on Spike TV in the U.S. and Canada from 9:30 AM PDT and 12:30 PM EDT respectively.

Xbox Daily: Live @ E3 will also be returning to provide "breaking news, exclusive announcements, trailer reveals, game demos, and interviews with game creators." Confirmed guests include Xbox boss Phil Spencer, and "guests from 343 Industries, Turn 10 Studios, Crystal Dynamics, and others."

Xbox Daily will air on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday between 4 and 5 PM PDT.

Interestingly, Microsoft also said it will be saving announcements for Gamescom in August, but added that it still has a strong lineup for E3.

"This year, we have an amazing games lineup to share (who knew it’d be so hard to pack all of our exclusive E3 premieres into an hour and a half?)," it said on the Xbox News Wire. "So we’re saving a lot of exciting reveals for Gamescom in August."

Microsoft has previously said it will be trying something a little different this year at E3, though it did not detail what that will entail. Thus far, it has revealed it will focus more on first-party games this year, but Spencer has indicated Microsoft will be looking to shake things up in other ways.

Microsoft will have "some interesting changes this year for briefing and the week," Spencer previously said, responding to a fan's question on Twitter about Microsoft's plans for E3.

It is likely that Windows 10 will feature quite heavily in the press conference. Microsoft has touted a new and improved built-in Xbox app, cross-platform play support for games like Fable Legends, and even a game-streaming application for the upcoming operating system.

Another likelihood is the Gears of War remaster, which has not yet been announced officially, but videos of which have leaked.
