Summer Game Fest

‘Tis the season – of reveals, announcements, surprises, and information overload: That’s right, Summer Game Fest 2024 is upon us. For fans of video games, this is one of the most exciting times of the year with a series of showcases taking place over just a couple of days.

While companies like Sony and Nintendo like to do their own thing and don’t really participate in this wild gaming weekend, pretty much every other big name in the industry will have something to say or show during the upcoming proceedings.
