Over 30 major companies in attendance
And with the arrival of June, comes the road to E3 — or, as we call it these days, “Geoff Keighley and his mates advertizin’ stuff.” With yet another absence form filled in by the Electronic Entertainment Expo, the spotlight falls on the Summer Game Fest, a seemingly endless showcase of publisher wares that will roll out over those hot summer nights.
Yesterday, Mr. Keighley got the hype machine in gear with a brand new post on Twitter, spotlighting 30 of the larger partner companies that will be taking part in this year’s event. The whole gang is present and accounted for, with a who’s who list that includes 2K Games, Bandai Namco, Capcom, Bloober Team, Activision Blizzard, Sega, Square Enix, Skybound, Devolver Digital, Dotemu, Epic Games, and many, many more. In fact, there are very few major publishers not featured in the splash image… save, of course, for Nintendo — notoriously standoffish when it comes to playing with others.
The core of the Summer Game Fest showcase is set to take place between June 9-12, via a selection of live streams, online presentations, social media reveals, and exceedingly long days for your friends at Destructoid and other gaming outlets. This will not suffice, however, as players can expect news, reveals, trailers, and other surprises throughout the summer months.
The action kicks off tomorrow, June 2, as Sony hosts its first State of Play stream of the new season. Be sure to tune in at 15:00 PT / 18:00 ET / 23:00 BST for 30 minutes of news and headlines pertaining to all things PlayStation. Of course, over the course of this summer, we will be working tirelessly to bring you all of the pertinent details regarding all of the hottest scoops right here on Destructoid.
Who will survive and what will be left of them?
This year's #SummerGameFest will feature events, activities and updates for fans from more than 30 partners, with more to be announced.
It's going to be a great month for video game fans.
