E3 2017: Every announcement and release date

Catch up on the biggest news from this year's Electronic Entertainment Expo with our handy guide

Whether you're on the show-floor or watching from a distance, E3 week can be an overwhelming experience: dozens of publishers with hundreds of games, all jostling for position and hungry for your attention.

For most people, though, the press conferences that kick the whole thing off are a focal point, providing a blueprint for the next year or more of the (for the most part) console business. This year, to make sure that nothing escapes your notice, we've compiled a list of every game showcased announced or dated at the E3 conferences this year. You'll find the games organised by their publisher or, in the case of indie games, the host of the conference in which they featured.
