The 2024 Summer Gaming Showcase Schedule

With the sun out and the temperature rising, it must be summer. That means it’s time to stay cool indoors and watch a litany of gaming showcases airing throughout the season. Highlighted by Summer Game Fest, we’ve created a schedule listing every notable showcase occurring over the coming months, the date and times they air, and a summary of what they entail. Be sure to bookmark this page, as it will be updated regularly as new events are announced and airdates are confirmed.

Future Games Show

Start Time: TBA

How to Watch: YouTube, Twitch

What It Is: The seasonal event will feature 40 upcoming games in what is being billed as “the most ambitious showcase yet”. We don’t know what else to expect besides updates on “blockbuster games” and deep dives on in-development titles. 

June 9

Xbox Games Showcase/[REDACTED] Direct

Start Time: 10 a.m. PT/1 p.m. ET

How to Watch: YouTube, Twitch

What It Is: Typically Xbox’s biggest showcase of the year, it’s probably safe to expect several hopefully big announcements coming from the publisher’s many first-party studios. Immediately following the Showcase is a not-so-mysterious presentation centered on probably, maybe, almost certainly, the next Call of Duty game. 

PC Gaming Show

Start Time: 1 p.m. PT/4 p.m. ET

How to Watch: YouTube, Twitch

What It Is: It’s the 10th anniversary of the PC Gaming Show, and its celebrating by rolling out over 50 games coming this year and beyond. The batch includes world premieres, exclusive announcements, and more. 

June 10

Ubisoft Forward

Start Time: TBA

How to Watch: YouTube, Twitch

What It Is: Ubisoft hasn’t revealed what it has up it’s sleeve, but it’s tough not to imagine that Assassin’s Creed Codename Red won’t appear. Other known titles in its upcoming slate that are likely to appear include Star Wars Outlaws, The Rogue Prince of Persia, Beyond Good & Evil 20th Anniversary Edition, and maybe, if we’re lucky, Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake and/or Beyond Good & Evil 2. 

Other Confirmed June Showcases Awaiting Dates
