GamesRadar+ has revealed that the Future Games Show will now be taking place on 11th June 2022, a day earlier than previously announced.
Taking place during the traditional E3 dates, even with the cancellation of gaming's premier summer event, the Future Games Show promises 60 minutes of new trailers, world premieres, and surprises. Things will kick off at 8PM BST / 12PM PST / 3PM EDT on 11th June, two days after Geoff Keighley's Summer Game Fest showcase, and a day before the Xbox & Bethesda Games Showcase.
“The Future Games Show is focused on helping fans discover something new with a hand-picked selection of multi-format games that deserve your attention,” says Future Games Show's content director Dan Dawkins. “We’ve featured over 200 games since our debut show in June 2020, including rhythm-action shooters, a canary-bird postal-service management sim, and a tactical vacuum action game with a 90s’ boy band soundtrack.”
With E3 cancelled this year, it's comforting to see so other events filling the void. After all, it wouldn't really feel like mid-June if we weren't awake at 2am, watching a publisher announce their latest game in a slightly cringey way, would it?
