We've had a lot of bad gaming-related news coming our way in the past several weeks, from the cancellation of E3 2020 to the currently indefinite delay of The Last of Us 2. But finally, we've got something positive to share: everyone's favorite live streaming-centric event, the PC Gaming Show, has officially been confirmed to be STILL ON for Summer 2020!
The PC Gaming Show will be taking place on June 6. It is sponsored and hosted by PCGamer and will feature announcements of new PC titles as well as live gameplay footage.
The Show has been presented as part of the more considerable E3 experience since 2015. Last year, in 2019, the PC Gaming Show's stream attracted more watchers than the official announcements by Nintendo and EA. Titles debuting during the PC gaming block in 2019 ranged from the sprawling Journey's End expansion for Terraria to the highly anticipated Borderlands 3 and Baldur's Gate 3. Over 30 games were shown off, including the first-ever look at gameplay footage from Age of Wonders: Planetfall and Vampire: The Masquerade Bloodlines 2. Also, Samsung debuted brand new hardware in the form of the gaming-focused CRG5 monitor.
What titles will be announced in 2020? Nothing has been officially confirmed, but speculation currently runs rampant. Although no schedule for the event has been released, rumored presenters include Epic Games, Intel, Tripwire Interactive, and even Humble Bundle. Humble Bundle has recently made headlines for donating a significant amount of profits from the sales of popular PC games to COVID-19 relief efforts.
Members of the press and content creators can register for the event at the official PC Gaming Show website. Also, a few presenter slots remain — fill out this form if you are interested in having your project considered for the Show.
In these stressful, uncertain times, the announcement of the PC Gaming Show's 2020 edition comes as a welcome relief. We'll keep you up to date as more news and announcements roll out over the next month.
