We are spoilt this weekend with one gaming event after the after, quite literally. The Future Game Show is a four-hour long event that follows right after the PC Gaming Show 2020. Fun times!
Future Games Show 2020: All the facts
Tonight’s event will be packed to the brim with exclusive trailers, announcements, and deep dives on existing AAA and indie games. The event comes to us courtesy of GamesRadar.
When will the show start
At 23:00, right after the PC Gaming Show. According to GamesRadar, publishers in the limelight tonight include Square Enix, Devolver Digital, among many others.
The show was initially planned for 6 June 2020 but was postponed to 13 June in support of the protests demanding justice and change over the death of George Floyd at the hands of the police.

Future Games Show hosts
In addition, Nolan North and Emily Rose will be hosting the event. If, for some reason, you don’t know who Nolan North is, then you have to watch the event purely for educational purposes.
Nolan is the voice behind the Assassin’s Creed franchise most-beloved character, Ezio Auditore da Firenze; Iron-Man too. I had the privilege of meeting Nolan (and Troy Baker) back in 2019.
We talked about Assassin’s Creed, Catherine (a super strange puzzle video game developed by Atlus for console) and their time in South Africa. They’re good people; watch the show, you’ll see.
What is the Summer Game Fest?
Quite simply, it’s a season of digital video game event from publishers and will feature playable content, in-game events, and plenty of special announcements and mystery reveals.

“We are figuring this thing out as we go! One man army here editing, streaming and interviewing but love your suggestions and ideas as we build. Best part is we have 4 months to tweak and play with the format.”
