Summer Game Fest 2023 is almost here, kicking off the start of a packed June full of different gaming showcases. The event is partnered with big gaming companies including PlayStation and Xbox, as well as indie developers and will be full of news and announcements for the next year of gaming.

Summer Game Fest was launched in 2020 as an online event after gaming conferences were cancelled due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The event will return following the cancellation of E3, where big name companies pulled out of the events, choosing to produce their own showcase announcements.
