We'll be updating this Summer Game Fest schedule article every day through SGF, adding links to all the best places to catch up and get all the info from each showcase. 

What is Summer Game Fest?

Summer Game Fest was once a competitor to the big E3 gaming conference held every year in June. The event, organized and presented by Geoff Keighley (of Game Awards fame), begins with a big live stream and then becomes host to exclusive game previews and other announcements. 

However, since E3 was officially confirmed completely, permanently dead, at the tail end of 2023 after a whopping 28 years by organizers ESA, Summer Game Fest has now become the de facto E3 replacement. 

The event is happening again this year, with companion events like Day of the Devs and our very own Future Games Show happening alongside Keighley's own live event. 


You'll find all our previews of the big new games for 2024 and beyond in our What's Hot: Summer Preview hub. Stay tuned for all the fresh thoughts from our team on the floor at Summer Game Fest.

Xbox has now revealed it's returning to the Summer Game Fest Schedule with a double whammy of live streams.

We'd imagine that will of course include Indiana Jones and the Great Circle, but there are a tonne of upcoming Xbox Series X games that could also get an update including Fable 4, the long-quiet Perfect Dark reboot, Marvel's Blade from Arkane, Elder Scrolls 6, and the Shattered Space DLC for Starfield

However, that will immediately be followed by the Call of Duty: Black Ops 6 Direct. Activision has said that this will be the place for the "first in-depth look at all-new gameplay and product announcements", but the full reveal of the game will seemingly happen before June 9.
