IGN has announced that it will be hosting an online event in June. 'Summer of Gaming' will consist of "publisher presentations with IGN pre- and post-discussions, remote developer interviews, hands-on demos and preview impressions, gameplay, and news segments recapping the biggest announcements". Basically, the network's attempting to fill 2020's E3-shaped hole.
Publishers such as Square Enix, SEGA, 2K, Bandai Namco, THQ Nordic, and Devolver Digital are apparently all on board, although the absence of heavy hitters like EA and Ubisoft, as well as Sony, Microsoft, and Nintendo, suggests that there may be other plans in motion.
Having said that, the article does promise "the latest news and impressions around upcoming games and the next generation of console hardware" during Summer of Gaming. It's perhaps fair to assume that we'll be seeing a number of PlayStation 5 titles from the aforementioned publishers. Take it one step further, and maybe it means that we'll know much more about the PS5 by the time this event begins.
What do you make of this? When do you think Sony will give us another glimpse of what's in store? Demand satisfaction in the comments section below.
Things are finally kicking off this summer, it seems.
It's going to be fun to see all the game announcements.
Well maybe it's also fair to assume that they are assuming what you are assuming #circular reference error.....error....
All i want for this event is:
1. A Mighty Morphin Power Rangers game with the retelling of three seasons and new actors like Max Mittelman as Jason, Robbie Daymond as Billy, Obie Banks as Zack, Stephanie Sheh as Trini, Erica Lindbeck as Kimberly, Bryce Papenbrook as Tommy, Jamison Price as Zordon, Ben Diskin as Alpha 5, Cindy Robinson as Rita Repulsa, Patrick Seitz as Lord Zedd, Roger Craig Smith as Rocky, Cristina Vee as Aisha and Michelle Ruff as Kat, with Johnny Yong Bosch reprising his role as Adam.
2. A new Sonic game with the adventure style, current voice actors and new characters like Speedy the Hedgehog (Johnny Yong Bosch) (Sonic and Amy's future grandson), Sakura the Hedgehog (Erica Lindbeck) (Speedy's younger sister), Punches (Robbie Daymond) (Knuckles' future grandson), Dusk the Hedgehog (Johnny Yong Bosch) (Shadow's future grandson), Renen (Tara Sands) (Tails' grandson and Sakura's protégé), Xavier (Nicolas Roye) (Renen's older brother) and Eggman Jr (Patrick Seitz) (Eggman's future grandson).
3. Rayman M remastered with Dark Globox and Globette.
4. Mortal Kombat 9 remastered.
5. Sonic Adventure 1&2 Remake with current voice actors.
6. The Sims 5
7. The Simpsons Hit and Run remastered.
8. A new South Park game.
9. A new Family Guy Game.
10. A PS5 console reveal.
Wish Sony would show the console, it would be a surprise if they showed it off in this event but hey! Sony is Sony they didn't make the PS4 good for no reason so they may have something new up there sleeves this gen. All in all pretty exited about actual PS5 reveal. GDC was good but kind of dull and personally I think regular fans want an actual console reveal. No hate towards Sony or Microsoft both doing good job! But Sony need's to give the fans something more than just raw specs. Hope to see something new!
@scottdevine48 Those are some specific hopes. Fair enough.
Gotta feeling qe will know what PS4 looks like before June.
Ign will have a ps5 showcase. But after Sony gives a full reveal of their own.
Was hoping we could let IGN have a peaceful death
I don't care if it's during whatever the heck this IGN nonsense is or if it's during one of the company's own events, I just hope Sony has a major PS5 event that gets me hyped for the system because right now I'm looking over at Xbox and I'm really interested in Series X. Sony, with all the turnover at the top and the dumb, dumb decisions getting made just has me looking at it sideways. The most recent PS5 news about the console being weaker than Series X certainly hasn't helped.
I want something Cartoonish, Casual and Cute for first launch PS5 games. 😏
I though it's sony official confirmation, oh well I hope there's a lot of playstation 5 games in there.
@Gamer83 To be fair, while xbox is maybe about 17% more powerful, ps5 ssd is 100%+ faster 😃
Really don't care about terraflops, I think each console will blow us away,
Sony will give IGN an exclusive first look at the X button on the PS5 controller😃
@Anti-Matter KNACK 3 BAYBEEEEEE
Not interested with Knack series. 😐
I want something Cartoonish, Cute, Kiddie from indies or 3rd party by mostly, such as Portal Knights, Dragon Quest Builders 2, Moving Out, Re:Legend, etc. 😉
I'm not sure if new Ratchet & Clank will be on PS5.
I don't understand that headline. It reads like it's a certainty SONY would be in on this event. Then I read the article and it states specifically that the none of the big three are participating. I know it's not intentional, but I can't help but feel like it's a bit click bait-y
@BrettAwesome most of the articles are getting more like that every day. Especially the 'no fact' articles.
@BrettAwesome yeah I feel the same. Nothing in the article lined up with the title. IGN doing this event doesn't suggest a ps5 event, at all.
@redd214 actually, it might be worth noting that the article announcing it on IGN itself has the PS5 and Xbox Series X tags. So there's definitely gonna be... something
I am not sure I understand. This June is still on but through network online only. Not in public right ?
@redd214 @redd214 @BrettAwesome Are you guys expecting publishers to keep announcing PS4 games or something? Rob is suggesting that PS5 games will be revealed by third-party, not that there’ll be a specific PS5 reveal event.
@LiamCroft lol relax, thanks for replying.
I'm pretty satisfied with what games we have coming up in the near future. Sure I'd like a Demon's Souls or Snake Eater Remake but what I really wish Square Enix would give us is The Soul Reaver Series Remakes
Maybe something gets lost in translation because I'm not a native English speaker.
To me "major PS5 blowout" sends a clear message that SONY is part of this, and has chosen this venue as their launch event. That's how I read the headline.
@BrettAwesome Not necessarily, Sony doesn’t need to be there for PS5 games to be announced.
@Anti-Matter Knack, and in particular Knack 3, are kind of a running joke around here, so expect to see a lot of "Knack 3" comments. It's what we do.
@Orpheus79V You like my list of hopes and expectations or you love it? Can you correct them?
Can u imagine if sony reveal the ps5 along with exclusives silent hills, resident evil 8, streetfighter 6...
Come to think about it, id be just as excited for night in the woods2, what remains of edith finch sequel.
The IGN mentions nothing about PS5? What is this clickbait article?
@BrettAwesome push square using clickbait? NEVER........
@Gmork___ Can you imagine not having unrealistic expectations
@Amppari nope lololol
It would have been much less confusing if the writer had said "next gen games" instead of "PS5". Especially since they're almost certainly all going to be 3rd party multiplatform games
