As we head further into the month of May there’s only one thing on our minds: the Summer of gaming news is nearly upon us! June officially marks the start of the Summer season, and what better way to celebrate the sunshine than sitting indoors and watching a long livestream for upcoming game reveals?
That’s right, the annual Summer Game Fest is officially returning this year, and now we have an actual date to mark in our calendars: June 9th at 11am PT (2pm ET / 6pm GMT) will be when Geoff Keighley will return to the stage in a night of spectacular announcements (at least we hope!). And if you feel like being a bit more bougie about the whole event, it will be streamed live in IMAX cinemas across the US, Canada, and the UK (as well as the usual.
The trailer above teases some highly anticipated upcoming titles likeStarfield, which seems a bit misleading because Bethesda is more likely to reveal more of their Sci-Fi RPG during the Xbox and Bethesda showcase a few days later on June 12th. But there's still likely to be some big game announcements anyway if last year's Summer Game Fest 2021 is anything to go by.
With E3 2022 canceled, the SGF will be the next best place for all the big studios to announce new games and provide more details on upcoming titles. 2K, Activision, Capcom, Electronic Arts, Gearbox, Bandai Namco, Square Enix, and Riot are all confirmed for this year’s show, with more to be announced.
