Summer Game Fest, Geoff Keighley’s annual summer event full of new game reveals and trailers will return for its fifth edition on June 7.

Although Summer Game Fest 2024 had already been teased, the Summer Game Fest team laid out more specific details about its 2024 festivities today. The headlining Summer Game Fest kickoff reveal live stream will take place at 2 p.m. PT on June 7. It will be live-streamed across platforms like YouTube, Twitch, and TikTok, and there will also be a live show at the YouTube Theater in Los Angeles. Tickets for the live show will go on sale on May 7. Since it’s still a few months out, no games have been confirmed for Summer Game Fest 2024 at this time; you can check out what was announced at 2023’s show to get a better idea of what kinds of games tend to show up, though.

As has been the case for the past several years, the Summer Game Fest showcase will be immediately followed by Day of the Devs: SGF Edition, which will focus specifically on games from independent developers. A press release says Day of the Devs: SGF Edition 2024 “will feature more than a dozen incredible games from game developers of all different backgrounds.” The SGF Play Days Event will then take place in LA between June 8 and 10 but will only be accessible to the press and influencers.

Interestingly, the press release unveiling all of these dates for Summer Game Fest 2024 teases that “fans can look forward to other live streams and events during this year’s Summer Game Fest,” although whether that constitutes other Summer Game Fest-produced live streams or showcases from companies like Microsoft remains to be seen.

Xbox Game Pass gets its first Activision Blizzard game very soon
xbox game pass march games diablo 4 iv

Microsoft unveiled the batch of titles coming to its gaming subscription service throughout the back half of March. Quite a few awesome titles are making their way to the service, but by far, the most notable addition is Diablo IV, the first Activision Blizzard game being made available on Xbox Game Pass.

Diablo IV was released in June 2023, just a few months before Microsoft completed its acquisition of Activision Blizzard. It's the latest entry in a long-running isometric RPG series, and it retains the same engaging dungeon design, deep progression systems, and captivating loot loop that makes games in this franchise special. People have been wondering when Activision Blizzard games would arrive on Xbox Game Pass in the months since the acquisition process was completed, and Diablo IV was finally confirmed to be coming to the service on March 28 last month.

The method to Apple Arcade’s madness? ‘Bring us an incredible game’
Apple Arcade characters stand on a chess board.

Whenever Apple rolls out a lofty new idea, it invites as many skeptics as it does fans. Devices like the Vision Pro birthed naysayers from the moment it was announced, but armchair criticism has rarely, if ever, put a dent in the tech giant’s plans. It has a way of committing to its products and initiatives, even when outsiders might think no one is using them.

That’s been the story of Apple Arcade since it launched in 2019. The service came at a time when the biggest tech companies were hungry for a piece of the lucrative video game industry. While Google and Amazon tried to break in with cloud platforms, Apple laid out an entirely different vision: a mobile subscription service full of games that featured no ads or microtransactions. It sounded too good to be true – and some people at that time weren't convinced. Look back at the comments on its original tweet announcing the service and you’ll find a mess of replies ripping it apart.
