The main event for Summer Game Fest 2022 has come and gone, bringing dozens of new trailers and game announcements. Host Geoff Keighley gave the spotlight to plenty of indie games this year with a handful of AAA surprises, but it was a far tamer show than previous outings. Here’s everything that was announced at Summer Game Fest along with its trailers.
A good portion of the show seemed to be filled with sci-fi horror-themed games for some reason, but it didn’t take away how great many of them looked, including The Callisto Protocol and Routine. The show also ended with the biggest announcement of the night that was sadly leaked beforehand.
