This year, Summer Game Fest is taking its role as an E3 replacement very seriously. Show host and creator Geoff Keighley has asked that people set their expectations wisely this year but that won't stop anyone from wishing for a new game in their favourite franchise.
That being said, we're pretty certain that there will be a few surprises worth shouting about during the show. The Summer Game Fest was a very impressive event last year and will look to improve upon that this time around.
Here's everything you need to know about Summer Game Fest 2022 including when it's live and how you can watch!

The Summer Game Fest 2022 will take place on Thursday, 9 June at 7 pm BST / 2 pm EST / 11 am PST.
We're just glad that they're not sticking to the timings that The Game Awards uses as that leads to a very late night for the European fans! It appears that the event will take place at a fairly reasonable time for everyone who may want to tune in.
How to Watch Summer Game Fest
You can tune in and watch the Summer Game Fest live on the official website, Twitch and YouTube! We've posted the video below so you can watch along or catch the event on-demand once it's over.
The Summer Game Fest Broadcast, alongside all of the Summer Game Fest broadcasts, encourage co-streaming unless specified otherwise beforehand, allowing content creators to react and discuss what is being shown. For those planning to co-stream, it's worth mentioning that some trailers may have licenced music that should be muted once it starts playing to avoid any DMCA or copyright claim issues.
Geoff Keighley Urges Viewers to Manage Their Expectations.
Presenter of Summer Game Fest and The Game Awards, Geoff Keighley has come out with some information regarding Summer Game Fest and to tell viewers of the stream to try and manage their expectations.
Keighley recently spoke during a Twitter Spaces session which was transcribed by VGC. In this, he announced that there would be "massive games" alongside indie titles but people should rein in their expectations for "megaton shocks" with some of the rumours he'd seen being, as he described them, "crazy."
One such rumour was the presence of GTA 6, a highly anticipated title currently being worked on. Geoff shot this one down via his Twitter, further hoping to tone down expectations from excited fans.
What's On the Show?
With the hours until Summer Game Fest kicks off ticking away, a few of the major titles being shown have been announced via Twitter.
Games included on tonight's show will be an extended look at Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2, Street Fighter 6 and The Callisto Protocol, with MARVEL's Midnight Suns and Gotham Knights also having some kind of appearance on the show.
In terms of leaks and rumours, there have surprisingly been very little with any substance which we're actually quite happy about this because the more surprises there are, the better and more engaging the show will be.
The only rumour with any kind of substance is the potential presence of a new Hideo Kojima title by the name of "Overdose" but even that has very little going for it in terms of being there.
