Geoff Keighley, organizer and host of Summer Game Fest Live, advised fans to manage their expectations for this week’s event, confirming that there will be “a few” new game announcements. The show will focus more on games that have already been announced, Keighley said.
“We have a few new game announcements on the show and hopefully a few surprises if it all hangs together. But it’s definitely a show that’s mostly focused on things that are announced,” Keighley said during an interview. a recent discussion on Twitter Spaces, as transcribed by VGC.
Keighley said people can expect to see games like The Callisto Protocol, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, Gotham Knights and Cuphead: The Delicious Last Course during the event, while Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson will be also there for some sort of announcement.
“We’re doing good things for you, but certainly manage your expectations in terms of the megaton shocks that you’re expecting,” Keighley said. “It’s not The Game Awards. We have a lot of good stuff to show you, but buyer beware of some of the crazy rumors I see out there in terms of things people expect to see announced. “
The event itself will last “about an hour and a half to two hours,” Keighley said, warning that the total run time isn’t completely locked in yet.
