The Summer Game Fest showcase this year will be the big kick-off event for Geoff Keighley’s gaming bonanza. We don’t yet know what will appear, but based on last year’s show, we can expect a 90-minute long show filled with the latest from PlayStation, Xbox, and Nintendo.
June 9 – 3 PM PST / 6 PM EST / 11 PM BST / 12 AM CEST (June 10)
Always at the height of madness, the Devlover Direct returns once again this year with at least four game showcases, as well as the usual inclusion of bits and skits that extend the Devolver Digital narrative.
In terms of what we can expect, Cult of the Lamb, Wizard With a Gun, and Gunbrella all seem like sure-fire showcases.
NETFLIX GEEKED WEEK: GAMING
June 10 – 10 AM PST / 1 PPM EST / 6 PM BST / 7 PM CEST
Netflix’s Geeked Week will conclude with their gaming efforts via their mobile phone app. But, on top of those announcements, we might hear more from Night School Studio on Oxenfree 2: Lost Signals, as the company now owns the developer.
However, you shouldn’t expect any big announcements at this show.
Tribeca Games Spotlight
June 10 – 12 PM PST / 3 PM EST / 8 PM BST / 9 PM CEST
The Tribeca Games Spotlight will highlight the nine games selected by the festival. These include some well-known titles like A Plague Tale: Requiem, Oxenfree 2 Lost Signals, and Cuphead’s DLC.
On top of that, the deep dives with developers will include As Dusk Falls (which is published by Xbox Games Publishing), American Arcadia, Immortality, The Cub, Thirsty Suitors, and Venba.
FUTURE GAMES SHOW

XBOX AND BETHESDA GAMES SHOWCASE
June 12 – 10 AM PST / 1 PM EST / 6 PM BST / 7 PM CEST
The Xbox and Bethesda games showcase is without a doubt the biggest event announced this year so far. Set to be at least 90 minutes long, we can expect a significant update on Starfield and Redfall, as well as new Game Pass game announcements.
Some extra titles we will likely see include, As Dusk Falls (which is making an appearance at the Tribeca Games Spotlight), Atomic Heart, the hilarity-inducing Party Animals, and more. And, of course, there could be some surprises from Xbox Game Studios as well.
PC Gaming Show
June 12 – 12:30 PM PST / 3:30 PM EST / 8:30 PM BST / 9:30 PM CEST
The PC Gaming Show is set to return in June this year with a focus on the latest PC Games. With a mix of software and hardware announcements, we are sure to get a new look at some anticipated 2022 games here.
Some games showcased here will also be on consoles as well, so it is worth tuning into.

The Campcom showcase returns for another year with a collection of updates on already announced games.
Here we will see more of Resident Evil 4 Remake, but we will likely see more from Monster Hunter Sunbreak, as well as Capcom’s co-op action game Exoprimal.
XBOX AND BETHESDA Extended GAMES SHOWCASE
June 14 – 10 AM PST / 1 PM EST / 6 PM BST / 7 PM CEST
The Extended Games Showcase is a longer look at some of the games originally showed off on June 12. However, the show will have some brand new announcements as well that are worth tuning in for.
The show will mostly be populated with Xbox Games Studios games, rather than third-party announcements.
Overwatch 2 showcase
June 16 – TBA
Ok, so while this isn’t technically part of Summer Game Fest, it is intriguing. Blizzard has told players its next Overwatch 2 event will be taking place on June 16.
We don’t have a time just yet, but it’s expected that the team will give us more insight to the development of the game, plus perhaps sharing more details on the next phase of testing.
As for Sony and Nintendo, neither publisher has announced plans to hold their own show yet. However, we could see announcements from them at Geoff Keighley’s Summer Games Fest Showcase. Although, we still have a few weeks for either publisher to announce what they have planned for mid-June.
That covers the Summer Game Fest schedule for 2022 as it stands right now. While you look forward to a bunch of games that are at least a year away, check out our rundown of the upcoming Xbox Series X games and upcoming PS5 games to see what you can play in the coming months.
