If you check the calendar of events in the gaming industry, you’ll quickly hone in on the fact that the Summer Game Fest takes place just a few days before E3, as it would have last year had the ESA not canceled the industry’s biggest gaming convention. Last year, for instance, we got our first look at a remake of “The Last Of Us” for PlayStation 5, among other high-profile reveals.
E3 is returning in 2023, but despite this, you can expect some activity from top publishers at the Summer Game Fest. “In keeping with tradition, we’ll have tons of exciting announcements from the developers that are pushing the games industry forward, and will once again highlight other publisher digital events, demos, and more surprises to be announced in the coming months,” said Keighley, per Gematsu. Much-anticipated blockbuster titles like “Starfield” should be out by then, and with both Microsoft and Sony feeling pressure to kick up the cadence for killer app releases on current-generation consoles, this could be the biggest summer of gaming we’ve experienced in years.
