The Summer Games Fest, hosted by Geoff Keighley, has grown to become one of the most important gaming events on the schedule, second only to Keighley’s other program, which takes place at the end of the year, and has helped to fill the hole left by the absence of E3.

What You Can Expect Summer Games Fest

Prepare yourself for a plethora of game trailers, a few premieres, and brief interviews with creators if past years are any indication. After the Elden Ring incident at last year’s Game Awards, security is likely to be tighter than usual surrounding the stage. At Summer Games Fest, both NetherRealm Studios, makers of Mortal Kombat 1, and Remedy Interactive, makers of Alan Wake 2, will show off their games’ unpolished gameplay for the first time.

Beyond that, there aren’t ever any truly huge announcements during SGF and most of the program is often devoted to new trailers for titles that have previously been announced. Bandai Namco may have a Tekken 8 teaser ready, Activision may show off footage from this year’s Call of Duty, and with Square Enix in attendance, it’s likely that anything relating to Final Fantasy 16 or its new soapy multiplayer shooter Foamstars will be displayed.

Capcom’s next game, Exoprimal, will be out a week by the time they take the stage, and by then, Genshin Impact and Honkai Star Rail upgrades from HoYoVerse will have likely been released. Street Fighter 6 will be a week old. The developers of Cyberpunk 2077, CD Projekt Red, showed off some brand new Phantom Liberty gameplay at last year’s Game Awards and promised further information on the upcoming DLC in June.

After Keighley’s show ends in June, there are still plenty of other presentations to see. On June 10, you can look forward to the return of Wholesome Direct, on June 11 you can see the Xbox Games Showcase and Starfield Direct, and on June 12 you can tune in to Ubisoft Forward.


Following the conclusion of Summer Games Fest, the independent games expo organized by Double Fine and Iam8bit will resume its operations. Indie games that are “unique, diverse, and beautiful” are showcased across a variety of categories during this event, which has been an annual tradition during Summer Games Fest ever since the year 2020. As is customary, you may watch the live stream of Day of the Devs on Facebook, as well as through the links to YouTube and Twitch that have been provided above.
