news event Summer Game Fest, Netflix, Xbox Showcase: Calendar of spring and summer E3-style video game conferences
Yes, there will be no E3 this year, but the JV players always use the period from May to June to announce their new products! Many publishers and industry companies announced their speeches at this time. For you to see more clearly, here is the full calendar.
For the month of June
Netflix Geeked Week (June 6-10)
As usual, Netflix is using the month of June to make its “Geek Week”, a week dedicated to his original productions and his video game adaptations. Each day has its own theme: Monday is dedicated to series, Tuesday to movies, Wednesday to animation, Thursday to Stranger Things Season 4 and Friday to games. So we can expect news from the Cyberpunk: Edgerunner series or even more excerpts from the Resident Evil series, which recently released its first trailer. On the JV side, the streaming monster has started its service in this space, so it might release news about Night School Studio (Oxenfree, Afterparty) which it recently bought.
Tribeca Festival (June 8-19)
Although the American festival Tribeca traditionally talks about cinema, the show has slowly fallen in love with video games and rewards the best titles released throughout the year, but even offers announcements of highly anticipated novelties. During the time of June 8-9, so we have a chance to hear about A Plague Tale Requiem, Cuphead The Delicious Last Course or even Oxenfree II Lost Signals. Casually more anticipated games in their respective genres. As I am sure you have understood, this is a moment not to be neglected! See you in early June.
Summer game festival (9 June / 8 p.m.)
As the health crisis brought its share of changes around the world, the video game industry has had to adapt as well. New events dedicated to the JV have sprung up to mark the occasion, including the Summer Game Fest organized by Geoff Keighley (who already manages the Game Awards). And with two successful issues under its belt, so much to say the show isn’t going to end too well! So see you June 9 at 8 p.m to discover “new game announcements, special guests from the video game industry and much more”. Knowing that we were entitled to the first trailer for Elden Ring last year, we can only be very excited.
Guerrilla Collective + Wholesome Direct (June 11 / 5 p.m.)
As has been the norm for the past two years, the Guerrilla Collective event is happy to showcase a large number of independent video games. This year’s edition is no exception to the rule, with a show to be held June 11 from 5 p.m French time. Last year we had the opportunity to discover titles like Vertigo, The Lightbringer among 80 other apps. This time should be so generous. Note that Guerrilla Collective is followed by Wholesome Direct, a presentation dedicated to colorful and benevolent independent games. There will be many people!
Xbox & Bethesda Games Showcase (June 12 / 7pm)
Of course, what would an E3 period be without big players like Xbox! The Microsoft brand therefore gives us an appointment June 12 at 7 p.m for “lots of information about games coming soon to the Xbox ecosystem”. Inevitably, the players’ blood stays only once, hoping for titles like Starfield, the reboot of Fable or even concrete news from Hellbalde II. The American company also comes with an impressive array of studios, having recently acquired Bethesda and Activision Blizzard. Note that there is no risk in hearing from this latest publisher who has to honor deals with other players before joining Xbox.
