It will be a different year due to the absence of E3, but throughout the summer, there will be various fairs that will calm us down with news. We leave you the calendar, which we will update as new events are announced.
This will be a somewhat sad summer in the world of video games due to the absence of E3, which is the quintessential event in our sector, and where launches usually agglomerate thanks to the different presentations of the companies during those days. The fair indeed needed a change of scenery, and they promised that they would return with more strength next year.
The good thing is that we have not been wholly orphaned, and throughout the summer, we will have various events, spread over time, where we will learn about all the news in the sector, with the titles that will hit the market in the coming months.
So, throughout the summer, we will have several events, some already confirmed and others announced in the coming days, to calm the desire for news and discover the information that will arrive on our consoles and PCs.
For this reason, we have prepared a calendar with all the events related to the sector that we will be able to enjoy in the coming months, with their dates and everything we expect. We will update the content as new information becomes known.
Netflix Geek Week
Date: From June 6 to 10
An event organized by Netflix where they will update their catalog. The platform is known for its many series and movies about video games, and we will probably know many more. Each day is dedicated to a specific theme, which will be the following: series, movies, animation, Stranger Things, and games. We are interested in all of them, especially the last one, from June 10.
Summer Game Fest
Date: June 9 at 8:00 p.m. (peninsular time)
We have been with the Summer Game Fest for several years as a counterpart to E3, and this year is especially called to compensate for its absence. An event organized by Geoff Keighley, who is also in charge of The Game Awards gala, will be loaded, hopefully, “World Premiere” with industry news for three hours.
Upload VR Showcase
Date: June 9 (time to be confirmed)
Virtual reality games are increasingly growing and becoming more critical in the sector, so this will be the opportunity to find out more news and encourage more users to try this revolutionary technology that never ceases to amaze.
Tribeca Games Spotlight
Date: June 10
Emerging from the popular film festival and showing the sector’s growth, the Tribeca Games Festival will also offer a series of presentations that also include the possibility of playing demos and seeing interviews with its creators. All are designed to create closeness with the user. It has been the center where games like Kena or A Plague Tale have been shown in-depth so that we can expect gems.
Guerrilla Collective Showcase
Date: June 11 at 6:00 p.m. (peninsular time)
Guerrilla Collective is a digital gaming showcase to reveal new announcements, trailers, gameplay, and a Steam event page for wishlists, demos, game preorders, etc. All with the presence of developers and creatives live.
Future of Play Direct
Date June 11 at 6:30 p.m. (peninsular time)
Future Of Play Direct is a biannual Toonami-inspired showcase highlighting new ways to play and a collection of newly curated games. One of those exciting events if the indie scene catches your attention.
Xbox & Bethesda Showcase
Date: June 12 at 7:00 p.m. (peninsular time)
Although we are disappointed with the delay of Starfield and Redfall, we will surely be forgotten in one of the most anticipated events of the year. The Xbox and Bethesda show will include everything you need to know about the lineup of games coming to the Xbox ecosystem, including new releases for Game Pass on console and PC.
PC Gaming Show
Date: June 12 at 9:30 p.m. (peninsular time)
As soon as the Xbox and Bethesda event is over, we will have another exciting one focused on the PC video games that are to come. These events usually have ups and downs on their level, but there are always exciting gems. Studios like Klei Entertainment (Don’t Starve) and 11-bit studios (This War of Mine, Forstpunk) are known to present their respective new games, so there’s plenty of reason to stay tuned.
Date: from August 24 to 28
After two years of absence due to the health situation, Gamescom returns this year in a physical event, with which we can finally see the news first-hand on the spot. It is an essential video game fair in Europe. It will have the responsibility even more of compensating for the absence of E3 and showing us everything that will arrive at the end of the year and what we expect for the next 2023.
