The launch date for the Summer Games Festival has finally been revealed. Starting June 9 at 8 p.m., the series’ traditional summer commercials will begin. One evening, Geoff Keighley will be in charge again, and given last year’s launch, we can already expect a big event. So what could this evening of June 9th have in store for us? Go back to the most probable hypotheses and the craziest dreams.
- Starfield to replace Elden Ring?
- Kojima, Jedi Fallen Order 2… Who will be the stars of the evening?
- Hollow Night Silksong, Sonic Frontiers…and why not?
- Breath of the Wild 2, Hogwarts Legacy… Those who might be missing out
Starfield to replace Elden Ring?
As we saw last year, Geoff Keighley’s evening is a veritable melting pot of advertisements and images of all kinds. between two classified ads or additional information, We would certainly qualify for three or four particularly eye-catching trailers. Well, let’s start with the most memorable, highlight of the show: the game that could end in the evening.
We still remember the photos from the Elden Ring that closed last year’s evening. a finish Predict who was able to impress everyone and make the little hearts of many players shake. Who will therefore be able to make the same effect on June 9? If we’re looking for a great game that we haven’t seen much about even though its release date is fast approaching, we’ve found one: Starfield. It remains to be seen if Xbox and Bethesda will release the little gem for the occasion. Because apart from a big surprise announcement, it’s hard to find another game that can produce that sweet effect worthy of the most beautiful ultimate fireworks packages.
Kojima, Jedi Fallen Order 2… Who will be the stars of the evening?
If we don’t see them play that role, the other games still have the potential to make an impression during this evening. According to some rumors in the lobby, we can’t expect some pretty pictures from Quantic Dream. In fact, from the inside the account Referred Possible announcement of a new fictional game during the Summer Games Festival. As for the expected Star Wars Eclipse, we’re unlikely to see him point at the tip of his nose. Announced at the 2021 Game Awards, it still has several years of development before it really takes shape. Suffice it to say that Quantic Dream probably has nothing to show at the time of the last event also given by Geoff Keighley.
But rest assured Star Wars fans, another game in their favorite world is in the works and not yet out: Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order 2. If the game hasn’t been officially announced yet, this opening night seems like the perfect time to do so. Especially since many expected to see the first images on May 4, a day dedicated to the Star Wars universe. It has to be said that time is running out since then, according to information from journalist Jason Schreyer, The title will be in development for some time and should be released in 2023. So the announcement shouldn’t be too long. It remains to be seen if Electronic Arts will keep it at a separate conference or if they will give us this little gift on June 9th.
As for other advertisements, it is difficult to make predictions. Often all the quality of good advertising is based on surprise. But there’s still a title shaping up in the shadows we can expect to see during the Summer Games Festival: Next Kojima. Last year, rumors swirled about it. It must be said that Hideo Kojima is a very good friend with Geoff Keighley who also announced that he will be present during the evening (as he finally revealed his Death Stranding Director to us). In addition, Kojima constantly posts cryptic images on Twitter, which many see as teasers for his upcoming game. The creator of Metal Gear and Death Stranding has also started again recently. Is there another false hope or a real teaser for an upcoming announcement? We’ll see that on June 9.
In addition to novelties, there are other games that are talking about them at the moment, and therefore they can appear in their appearance. We’re thinking especially of Everywhere, the ambitious Leslie Benzies (GTA) game that officially formed in 2020. If the title has been somewhat conservative since that year, it has recently made it back to the front of the stage thanks to a document leak. With the Summer Games festival just around the corner, this timing is still interesting. Especially from the start, the project has been in the pipeline for five years now. So it looks like it’s time to finally unveil the first images of this real-life Ready Player One. (as described).
If we go into gaming for a strong excitement, we have another one that you all find: yesterday. As the most favorite game on Steam, the MMO inspired by The Last of Us and Tom Clancy’s The Division obviously has high expectations. Unfortunately, with only a few weeks left before its release, bad news for players has been dealt with: the postponement to March 1, 2023. But the reason is still a huge consolation. If the previous day was delayed, it is because the game will finally run on Unreal Engine 5. If this decision was made a while ago, the developers might have some great shots to show us. The video showing Unreal Engine 5 performance and gameplay in this The Day Before will have no problem getting good for us “Wonderful”.
And why not a little Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 (2022) to get a video trailer? or even Confirmation of the “Nero” project, Supposed to mark the return of the famous mafia saga according to Kotaku? There are many games that can give us a good big slap to start the festivities at the highest level. And this is just for the huge ads, the ones that will go down in history for the majority of players. Because there will be many others, less important to the general public, but they will still be happy.
Hollow Night Silksong, Sonic Frontiers…and why not?
During the Summer Games Festival evening, there are really not only huge announcements, even if it remains a matter of point of view. For example, while many will see a potential commercial for Hollow Knight: Silksong without paying much attention to it, others will see it as the announcement of the year. This Arlesian from Nintendo Conferences is eagerly awaited by gamers who have enjoyed the first synthesis. On Nintendo Direct, they had to swallow our false hopes, not without a certain sadness. But after all, weren’t they wrong to expect it from Nintendo? The little bird has gotten so big that it’s now legit to be in the Summer Games Festival program. Admit it, this premise is above all a desperate plea in the face of this undecided advertising. But after all, we are not a single disappointment anymore.
Coming back to the more likely games, we can hope to get some news from DotEmu. The old-school publisher took advantage of last year’s evening to bring us Metal Slug Tactics. One could easily imagine that if the editor had something to offer, he would do so that evening. This could be a new game, or news about Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge which should soon find a specific release date.
because yes, The Summer Game Fest is also an opportunity to discover new images or information on upcoming games in the coming months. And for once, there is a good package. Little Lana’s planet Unveiled during a recent launch party, it may have the right to new images and a release date. The same applies to Sonic Frontiers and Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League. And since we’re talking about Warner Bros. Why don’t we hope for new photos of Gotham Knights Scheduled for October 2022. steelring, The new Spiders game, which was especially honored at the Game Awards 2021, may also take the opportunity to generate interest a few months before its release.
As for the section devoted to game-of-the-moment updates (with ‘Between Us’ being at the top of the list last year), We can bet on Lost Ark, which was announced to be relocated in the West during last summer’s Game Festival. We’re also not immune to a small blob of news on the side of Warzone or any other multiplayer game at the moment.
Breath of the Wild 2, Hogwarts Legacy… Those who might be missing out
The problem with this kind of event that we know neither the program nor the partners, is that we are sure that we are wrong in the predictions, because the possibilities are numerous. In the end, it’s not a risk to go ahead with ads that won’t exist. It’s simple, major publishers and manufacturers should keep their exclusives to themselves.
Besides Starfield, which has the ability to Elden Ring, Xbox and Bethesda are expected to rescue their young children for the June 12 conference. And the list is long: Senua’s saga: Hellblade II, Project Mara, The Elder Scrolls VI, Fable, Everwild… Here are several that, if they appear, will do so later in the week.
If Sony’s Play status isn’t announced, just like Big N’s Nintendo Direct, we doubt the two giants will also be speaking during the month. So it’s hard to see them get rid of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2 or God of War: Ragnarok. Same battle for Hogwarts Legacy: Hogwarts Legacy. If PlayStation wasn’t an exclusive, it’s the Japanese company that’s been handling the title transfer from the start and it’s hard to see them let go of the piece now.
Also note that the Summer Games Festival is primarily an event focused on Western players. Admittedly, last year we had the right to photos of Rising Tales, but the latter was an anomaly in the middle of this American-centric event. As for Japanese games, you will definitely have to wait for specific publisher conferences (Square Enix, Bandai Namco, etc.) or the Tokyo Game Show.
related From A Plague Tale: Requiem and Cuphead: The Delicious Last Course, But also American Arcadia, like Dusk Falls Immortality, Oxenfree II: Lost Signals, The Cub, Thirsty Suitors and Venba, we know they won’t be there because they already are. Featured on June 10 Tribeca Games Spotlight.
In light of what Jeff Keighley and his band brought us last year, this evening is expected to be full of surprises. If arcade rumors and news allow us to consider the existence of certain titles, we’re only asking to see unexpected updates and games. Because that’s what makes the beauty of this kind of event, even if everyone has their small expectations. and you, what is yours?
