We're on the verge of summer, and in the land of video games, that almost always means announcements, new game reveals, and more screen time for Geoff Keighley. The producer and presenter is coming back once again with Summer Game Fest in early June, and as usual, the main attraction will be a big showcase packed with updates on upcoming games and announcements of new ones. Speaking about the approaching show, Keighley reckons there will be some "pretty big" things to get particularly excited about.
In an interview over on Epic's website, he doesn't get into specifics, but says the show currently has three or four announcements lined up that are "pretty big for this audience". Obviously, it's anyone's guess what they are, but it's at least exciting to hear there will be some meaty games on show.
The article also points out this will be the first Summer Game Fest in several years to be put on in front of a live, in-studio audience, which should add to the drama of the event. "In the world of so many video events, our live show and fan audience is a key differentiator for Summer Game Fest," Keighley says. "It adds so much energy to the room to have fans react to the announcements, allowing us to really bring the announcements into the room."
It also sounds as though the presentation will have a slightly slower pace than that of The Game Awards. In some cases, games will get a bit more spotlight by having the developers come out and talk about them, to "give a little bit more context around games" rather than show trailer after trailer.
We're certainly excited to see what Keighley has in store for us next month, but before we get to that, there's the PlayStation Showcase, which takes place this Wednesday, 24th May.
1) Kojima will be there
2) Kojima will have lunch with Jeff
3) Kojima will surprise us all, by telling us he is making games.
4) Trailer for a sequel to Valcano High 2.
At least he tempered his big games hype with "for this audience" so not expecting too much.
Also its Wednesday 24th May not Thursday...
The Last of Us 2 Remake
Spiderman (PS5 Remaster) Remake
Fortnite Season 100
Jeff Keighley's NBA Dribble Master
Push Square to doubt
@Uncharted2007 I’d take a native PS5 version of the Last of Us 2 even tho i am sure it won’t happen anytime soon or at all. 😀
I don't even care with big AAA games announcement.
Gimme more upcoming 3rd party kids games on PS4 / PS5.
Without E3 this will have to do!
I hope Jeff can produce a decent show case this summer.
@NotSoCryptic the ice age?
As I said with my previous predictions comment, I expect Half life Alyx psvr2 to be announced at g fest.
Fingers crossed Anyhoo.
So...isn't this just every Summer Game Fest then?
Is it the reformed orthodox rabbi bill Clinton?
1) Redfall DLC
2) a new halo
3) Hellblade 2 delayed
4) Pikmin 4 playable demo
Fartboy with more nonsense. Go sniff your own farts Geoff.
What just like last year and the year before Jeff?
Horizon 2: Forbidden West remake! It needs one, the graphics are starting to look dated.
Abandoned 2 gameplay reveal
Geoff Keighley will ensure that he gets more screen time than the games like usual.
Will always like Geoff because I think he honestly loves this industry but from G4 to Spike TV to YouTube, he says this every year, for every show he hosts.
If there's some true AAA megatons dropping this "E3" season, they're most likely dropping on Wednesday at the showcase.
No GTA 6 or Persona 6, the only 2 announcements I currently really deep down care about. Might be a few new IP surprises which could be nice though.
I don’t trust him. He hypes up some mediocre looking games and calls it big announcements.
Come on now.. 3 or 4.. Jeez. There have to be 10 or 20.
Otherwise it's nowhere near an E3...
I expect the coming days/weeks to at least have 30 new game announcements (spread over Sony showcase, MS showcase, summer fest etc)
The last year's Summer fest and Gamescome conferences were solid BAD. So i guess nothing can be worst lol.
Is there a new Battlefield coming this year?
I'd be more surprised if he said there wouldn't be anything of note so don't bother watching.
@Americansamurai1 possibly. lol I won't be sticking around to find out.
N.i.c.e.good to know.more games is always welcome.word up son
Hype is so annoying and most of the time a disappointment afterwards.
Oh please!! This guy could hype a fart!
I'm not gonna even try to speculate, whatever they show off is what they show off.
One of them will be a 5 min promo featuring a random celebrity announcing their fruit juice.
