Summer Game Fest Live! 2022 – What Can We Expect?

Truthfully, with E3 having been cancelled this year, Summer Game Fest Live! 2022 is going to be one of the few places where developers can truly showcase what they’ve got to offer, so expect big reveals and plenty of new announcements regarding all the upcoming games.

Certain games that might not be included are those that are created by Xbox and Bethesda, as they’ll be hosting their own showcase on Sunday, June 12th. Games like Starfield might be mentioned during the Summer Game Fest Live! event, if only to tease a bigger reveal during Xbox’s showcase. Adverts for adverts, and all that.

Last year’s event included games like Elden Ring, Death Stranding: Director’s Cut, Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands and more, so we can certainly expect a diverse event. If you’re more concerned with indie games, however, Summer Game Fest Live! 2022 will be immediately followed by Day of the Devs: Summer Game Fest EditionCo-produced by Double Fine Productions and iam8bit, Day of the Devs will aim to provide a platform for upcoming indie games to flourish. Last year’s event included the likes of Behind the Frame, Death’s Door, Garden Story, Last Stop and TOEM.

Ahead of the event, Geoff Keighley and the SGF team have confirmed several already announced games that’ll be part of Summer Game Fest Live! 2022, including Cuphead, Gotham Knights, Marvel’s Midnight Suns, Street Fighter 6, along with a host of new game reveals too.
