It's just over two weeks until E3 2019 (opens in new tab) officially starts and among the announcements being pushed out ahead of time is that the writers and producers of The Simpsons will be in attendance (opens in new tab). They'll be part of a panel during E3 Coliseum on June 11, the series of talks and demos put on by Geoff Keighley. And what will they be talking about or maybe demonstrating? No idea.

Remaster of Virtual Springfield (opens in new tab) perhaps? A sequel to Hit & Run? Bonestorm, but like for real? Or just another mobile game? We have no way of knowing if there's even a game announcement behind this or if it's just an opportunity to have the people behind The Simpsons take part in The E3 Experience.

Earlier this year, The Simpsons consulted with Riot Games for an episode in which Bart becomes a pro gamer (opens in new tab). It was called 'E My Sports'.

Jody's first computer was a Commodore 64, so he remembers having to use a code wheel to play Pool of Radiance. A former music journalist who interviewed everyone from Giorgio Moroder to Trent Reznor, Jody also co-hosted Australia's first radio show about videogames, Zed Games. He's written for Rock Paper Shotgun, The Big Issue, GamesRadar, Zam, Glixel, and, whose cheques with the bunny logo made for fun conversations at the bank. Jody's first article for PC Gamer was published in 2015, he edited PC Gamer Indie from 2017 to 2018, and actually did play every Warhammer videogame.
