Summer Game Fest 2024 is now the major gaming presentation of June after the announcement of E3's death last year.

It's not the only gaming showcase running this June though. Nintendo, Ubisoft and Xbox all have presentations planned for the weeks following Geoff Keighley's Summer Game Fest. You'll also be able to get a look at upcoming indie titles thanks to the Access-Ability Summer Showcase and Wholesome Direct among others, and that's before we get to the other staples of the gaming conference season such as IGN Live and the PC Gaming Show.

Below you'll find a complete Summer Game Fest 2024 conference schedule as we know it so far, running in chronological order and including all of the shows which have been announced at time of writing. We'll also be regularly updating it with confirmed dates, times and additional events if they're announced.

If you've followed our summer conference guides over the past years, then you'll know that, alongside the date and time details, we like to include a little bit of background reading to give you an idea of what to expect ahead of time. (Not that we're trying to give you homework or anything...) Though, there's certainly going to be some surprises as is tradition!

This page will also be populated with links to any round up or major stories after each conference airs. Some shows will also have dedicated live texts over on the Eurogamer home page when the time comes. Feel free to drop by and say hello!


Summer Game Fest 2024 schedule at a glance

With E3 confined to the eternal crypts, the Summer Game Fest Opening Showcase is now the main gaming presentation for, well, the summer. (Well done Geoff... You won...) Alongside it, there's a host of other presentations, such as an Xbox Games Showcase and Wholesome Direct, running throughout June. All of which will give you a good idea of what games are on the horizon!

At the time of writing, it's important to note we're still waiting on date and time confirmations for the upcoming June Nintendo Direct. We have included this presentation on the schedule below to ensure you have a good idea of what's coming and we'll update this page once this date are announced.

Here's the Summer Game Fest and conference schedule for June 2024:

Here's every conference in order of which has yet to be broadcasted one-by-one:

Yacht Club Games Presents - Friday 14th June

  • UK - 7.30pm (BST)
  • Europe - 8.30pm (CEST)
  • East Coast US - 2.30pm (EDT)

Yacht Club Games, the developers of Shovel Knight and Mina the Hollower, will be broadcasting a showcase at the above times on Friday 14th June via YouTube.

While we don't know much about the showcase at the moment, Yacht Club Games has revealed the showcase is in-part of a celebration of Shovel Knight's tenth anniversary. It also promies to bring new announcements, merchandise (probably Shovel Knight related) and a couple of surprises.

Nintendo Direct - June 2024

Date and time to be confirmed.

Thanks to an announcement from Shuntaro Furukawa, Nintendo president, posted on the official Nintendo Corporate X account, we know there will be a Nintendo Direct sometime in June. At the time of writing, the exact date and time for this Direct are yet to be revealed, but we'll update this page once they are.

As usual, you'll be able to watch this Nintendo Direct on YouTube and Twitch.

It's important to note that while Furukawa's statement included a mention of the Switch 2, it will not be discussed during June's Direct. Though it is nice to know that the Switch's successor isn't just a product of our collective imagination with this post being the first time Nintendo has officially discussed it. (Let's be honest, dropping the news this way is a very Nintendo move.) Earlier this year, Eurogamer sources did confirm that the Switch 2 is on track for a 2025 launch so hopefully we'll finally get a look at the console before this year is out.

What's been announced so far?

As time passes, we'll be passing the showcases which have aired out of the list above and posting links to the round-ups we've published to help you catch up on any annoucements:

Hope you enjoy the summer game conferences!
