PlayStation is an official partner of this year's Summer Game Fest, the event has confirmed. Organiser and host Geoff Keighley broke the news that Summer Game Fest 2021 will begin on the 10th June, with a "Premiere Showcase" promising news and announcements (as well as a musical performance from Weezer).
This is all just two days before E3 2021 kicks into gear, so next month is set to be quite busy. That said, we would suggest tempering your expectations for Summer Game Fest. While companies like PlayStation, Ubisoft, and Capcom are down as partners, that doesn't necessarily mean they'll have huge news to share. It's probably far more realistic to expect, say, a new Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart trailer from Sony, rather than the reveal of a brand new PS5 game.
It's also worth noting that publishers such as Ubisoft and EA are hosting their own events this summer. It's highly likely that any big announcements will be saved specifically for those shows.
Naturally, we'll be covering any relevant news here on Push Square — but will you be watching Summer Game Fest's opening showcase? Give Geoff a thumbs up in the comments section below.
