Technically, we won’t have E3 2022 this summer, as the ESA has chosen to completely cancel both the digital and in-person versions of the event. That doesn’t seem to change publishers’ plans much though, as there’s still a ton of game launches going on in June. In fact, there could be even more than if E3 had taken place.
So far we know about big events like Xbox & Bethesda show and Summer Games Fest show. However, with all these different events happening independently of E3, it can be a little difficult to keep track of them all, so we’ve organized each announced non-E3 event here into a handy schedule. As more events are announced, we’ll continue to update this post and add links to past coverage at the bottom.

Guerrilla Collective and Beneficial Direct
Returning this year and with exclusive announcements, the Guerrilla Collective Stream will take place on Saturday 11 June. These tend to be quite long streams, as they feature some indie games and often have interviews, and the news doesn’t end with that show – immediately after that, the Wholesome Direct airs with news and trailers of the light-hearted games on the way. A second Guerrilla Collective event will also air on June 13 at 1:00 PM PT.

Xbox & Bethesda Games Showcase
The Xbox & Bethesda Games Showcase–who may need a name workshop if the Activision Blizzard deal goes through–will be held on June 12 at 10 a.m. PT. This event features games and announcements from Microsoft’s first-party studios, including Bethesda’s roster, as well as third-party game announcements. It will probably last about 90 minutes, interrupting previous presentations, and will be viewed on YouTube† twitch† facebookand TikTok†

The show will feature Arma 4, Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine 2, Immortality and Victoria 3, along with unannounced games from big names like Clay and 11-bit studios.

So far, we have several question marks for the game events in the summer of this year. Nintendo and Ubisoft have hosted their own presentations in the past — in Ubisoft’s case, it’s even hosted two — while Sony has dumped E3 in the past and may have planned something else. In the case of EA, we know that there will be no EA Play 2022 event.
Capcom is joining the publisher’s showcase promotion this year, though you shouldn’t expect to actually get any new game announcements. The Capcom Showcase will last approximately 35 minutes and will focus on news about previously announced Capcom games, which could mean more information to come about the Resident Evil 4 remake that was teased just in early June.

14th of June
Xbox Games Showcase expanded
Like last year, Microsoft is holding an extended stream called Xbox Games Showcase expanded after its main showcase. This time it is set up a few days later and takes about 90 minutes. During that time, there will be longer games on the main show, along with interviews and brand new trailers. It’s unlikely there will be any major world premieres, but it gives players the chance to see even more of their highly anticipated games. It will be available on the same YouTube and Twitch channels as the main showcase.
