Today, Microsoft released its next presentation at E3 2019 will be two hours long. As you may know, its 2016 conference was 90 minutes long, while its 2017 conference was 95 minutes long. Last minute's conference was 104 minutes long, despite Microsoft taking out a two-hour slot for it. In other words, like last year, just because Microsoft has a two hour block, doesn't mean they will use it all. That said, they probably will.
With Sony skipping E3 this year, there is going to be even more third parties trying to get onto Microsoft's internship. So that alone could account for an extra 20 minutes. But do not forget about many people who are expecting Microsoft to reveal the next Xbox during the show, which should take up a healthy slab of time. That all said, who knows how long it will wind up being. All we know is no longer than two hours.
Gears 5 and Halo Infinite . There's a few other first-party games floating around, like the new Battletoads but nothing super substantial, which means we'll probably get a good amount of third-party reveals. For example, Cyberpunk 2077 is expected to be there with some big news.
Xbox's E3 showcase is poised to take place on June 9 at 4 p.m. EST, which means it will likely finish at 6 p.m. EST. So, make sure you have that block of your calendar clear, because the show is likely to be the biggest at E3 this year.

Speaking earlier this year, Xbox boss Phil Spencer has said the company is bigger than it ever has in this year's E3, which suggests not only will use the full two hours, but that it will be packed full of some big announcements and reveals.
