Sony will hold its E3 2017 press briefing in its usual timeslot: The PlayStation E3 Media Showcase is set for 6 p.m. PT on Monday, June 12, according to an invite the company sent to members of the press today.

The event will take place at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles, the same venue that Sony has used in two of the past three years.

Sony may be taking its usual Monday evening slot, but other publishers are switching things up. Microsoft is moving from Monday morning to Sunday afternoon; Electronic Arts is going a day earlier than it did last year, with an event at noon on Saturday. (Nintendo, of course, isn’t holding an E3 press briefing at all.)

At its press conference, Sony will likely focus on upcoming PlayStation 4 games — the company announced a number of big PS4-exclusive titles last year, like God of War, Days Gone and The Last of Us Part 2, that don’t currently have release windows.
