Geoff Keighley has said that this year’s Summer Game Fest will focus on games that have already been announced.
Speaking in a Twitter Spaces audio session (transcribed by VGC), Keighley said:
“What I would say is that a lot of the games we’re going to show you are going to be [already] announced… games are going to show new content to you, like some of the ones I’ve mentioned.
“We’ve got a couple of new game announcements in the show and hopefully some surprises if everything holds. But it definitely is a show that’s primarily focused on stuff that is announced.
“So we’re doing some good stuff for you, but definitely manage your expectations in terms of the megaton shocks that you’re expecting. This is not The Game Awards. We’ve got lots of good stuff to show you but buyer beware of some of the crazy rumors I’m seeing out there in terms of things people expect to get announced.”
So there you have it. No Megaton shocks, indeed. As long as you correctly calibrate your excitement, you should be fine.
So, what should we expect from the upcoming Summer Game Fest?
Keighley said: “We’ve talked about The Callisto Protocol. That will be there. We’ll have the first gameplay demo you guys probably saw the trailer for.
“We’ll have the first level playthrough of Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2,” Keighley said. And then: “We’ll have a reveal and some news around Gotham Knights and some new footage of that game as well.”
