News event Summer Game Fest, Netflix, Xbox Showcase: Calendar of E3-style Spring Summer Video Game Conferences
Yes, there will be no E3 this year, but JV’s players always take advantage of the period May-June to announce their new products! Many publishers and industrial entities announced their speeches at this time. To help you see more clearly, here is the complete calendar.
For the month of June
Netflix Geeked Week (June 6 – 10)
As usual, Netflix is taking advantage of the month of June to do just that “Geek Week”, a week dedicated to its original productions and its video game adaptations. Every day has its theme: Monday will be dedicated to series, Tuesday to movies, Wednesday to animation, Thursday to season 4 of Stranger Things and Friday to games. We can therefore expect news from the Cyberpunk: Edgerunner series or even more excerpts from the Resident Evil series, which has recently released its first trailer. On the JV side, the streaming monster has launched its service in this area and could therefore provide news about Night School Studio (Oxenfree, Afterparty), which it recently acquired.
Tribeca Festival (June 8 – 19)
Although the American festival Tribeca traditionally talks about cinema, the show has slowly fallen in love with video games that reward the best titles released during the year, but even offer announcements of long-awaited news. In the period of June 8 to 9, so we get a chance to hear about A Plague Tale Requiem, Cuphead The Delicious Last Course or even Oxenfree II Lost Signals. Random pretty much anticipated games in their respective genres. As you will have understood, this is a moment that should not be neglected! See you in early June.
Summer Game Fest (June 9 / 20.00)
As the health crisis brought its share of change around the world, the video game industry also had to adapt. For the occasion, new events dedicated to the JV have emerged, including the Summer Game Fest, hosted by Geoff Keighley (who already manages the Game Awards). And with two editions crowned with success in the legs, so much to say that the show is not going to stop in such a good way! So see you June 9 at 8 p.m. to discover “announcements about new games, special guests from the video game industry and more”. When we know that last year we were entitled to the first trailer for Elden Ring, we can only be very excited.
Guerilla Collective + Wholesome Direct (June 11 / 5pm)
As usual for two years, the Guerrilla Collective event is happy to reveal 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 kl. French time. Last year, we had the opportunity to discover titles like Vertigo, The Lightbringer along with 80 other apps. This time should be just as generous. Note that the Guerrilla Collective will be 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 era be without big players like the Xbox! The Microsoft brand therefore gives us an agreement per June 12 at 7 p.m. for “lots of information about games coming to the Xbox ecosystem soon”. Inevitably, the players’ blood has only one turn to hope for titles like Starfield, the reboot of Fable or even concrete news from Hellbalde II. The US company also arrives with an impressive array of studios, having recently acquired Bethesda and Activision Blizzard. Note that there is no risk of hearing about this latest publisher having to abide by contracts with other players before signing up for the Xbox.
