Summer Game Fest officially begins on June 9, with Geoff Keighley as the host showcasing games, and announcing new projects. Geoff has previously stated that Summer Game Fest will be focusing more on projects that have already been announced.
With Day 1 focusing on the broader industry as a whole, we may expect companies such as EA, Dotemu, 2k, Bloober team, Bandai Namco, Epic Games, Mihoyo, Sega, Raw Fury, MDHR, Sony, Square Enix, Steam, Skybound Games, Level Infinite, Warner Bros, Frost Giant, just to name a few, as these companies are not hosting their own events, it is likely that they may make an appearance on this day, or at Microsoft’s event.
Mihoyo has stated that they will be showing off new information and footage from Honkai: Star Rail, and maybe some more information on Zenless Zone Zero!
Summer Game Fest will officially kick off on June 9, 11:00 [PDT].
■ Part 2: Devolver Digital
On June 9, 3:PM [PDT], Devolver Digital will be kicking off its event, showcasing its “Marketing Countdown to Marketing”. Devolver Digital is known for having fairly bombastic and outrageous events, usually pre-recorded and parodying the industries and gamer culture. This year is especially different as leading the Devolver Direct will be none other than a mechanized Suda 51!
If you’re unfamiliar, Suda 51 is the CEO of Grasshopper Manufacture, and is responsible for directing games such as Lollipop Chainsaw, Let It Die, and No More Heroes! With “at least four videogame announcements” to be made during the event, expect a bizarre, comical, and action-packed show when Devolver performs its signature directs.
