All the Online Summer Gaming Events Being Held Instead of E3

May 6, 2020

Due to the global pandemic, there will be no E3 this year. Fortunately, a number of companies have decided to fill this gap by announcing their own online gaming events.

  • Xbox 20/20 (starting on May 7 and continuing once a month through the end of the year) — a series of Microsoft conferences on Inside Xbox. It will be held every month and cover such topics as hardware and software for the next Xbox and next generation games announcements.
  • Summer Game Fest (May–August 2020) — Geoff Keighley is now responsible not only for Gamescom Live and TGA, but also for this festival. A large number of publishers, including Sony, Microsoft, 2K, Bandai Namco, Bethesda and others will announce and share details about their new games.
  • EA Play Live (June 11 at 4 p.m. PST) — an online presentation from Electronic Arts, which of course will announce FIFA 2021.
  • Night City Wire (June 11) — broadcast from CD Projekt Red, where developers will share news about Cyberpunk 2077.

As a result, we will not get one festival that lasts three-to-four days. Instead, new announcements and details of new games will be delivered every week. It seems to be easier for us, for publishers and developers; most likely, such a presentation format will become constant.
