Geoff Keighley has revealed that the upcoming Summer Game Fest will be “primarily focused” on previously-announce games, and as such has suggested people manage their expectations when it comes to megaton announcements.
Speaking on a Twitter Spaces audio session, Keighley mentioned a couple of titles that will be there, including The Callisto Protocol and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II, as well as an appearance by Dwayne Johnson. However, he made it clear that people shouldn’t expect too much from “megaton shocks.”
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.
Summer Game Fest will run June 9-12, although there will be some content spread our across a period of two weeks or so.
