Toronto-born Geoff Keighley launched the four-month-long, all-digital Summer Game Fest last year, and it’s back again with a ‘Kickoff Live!’ showcase kicking off on June 10th at 2pm ET/11am PT.
The event will run for about two hours and feature more than 30 titles from popular gaming companies such as PlayStation, Xbox, Square Enix, Activision, Amazon, 2K, Capcom, EA and Bandai Namco.
On top of that, E3 kicks off next weekend and takes place online from June 12th to 15th. Ubisoft’s conference will go live on June 12th at 3pm ET, Gearbox’s event will take place on June 13th alongside Xbox and Bethesda’s Games Showcase at 1pm ET.
Further, Square Enix Presents will stream on June 13th at 3:15pm ET following the Xbox & Bethesda event, and Nintendo’s keynote kicks off on June 15th at noon.
Xbox and Bethesda are rumoured to show Starfield, a new sci-fi title that was first revealed back at E3 2018, but one we haven’t heard much about since. Meanwhile, Ubisoft has confirmed that it will show off Rainbow Six: Quarantine and the Toronto-developed Far Cry 6, among other games.
I’m hoping to get a better look at Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl during Nintendo’s stream to learn if the games will be exact replicas of the originals or if there will be any surprises. Additionally, it would be cool to hear at least something about FromSoftware’s Elden Ring at some point, but I doubt that will happen.
