There's technically no E3 this year, but you'd be forgiven for thinking otherwise. Over the course of a few days, Sony announced that Spider-Man is coming to PC, Street Fighter 6 was revealed, Bethesda gave us our first proper look at Starfield, and exciting games like The Invincible were shown at the PC Gaming Show.

In this article, we've collected all the big games that got trailers and announcements during this reveal-heavy late spring not-actually-E3 part of the year, and we'll keep updating it. The weekend's events are over, but there are a few more coming throughout the rest of June.

State of Play

The PlayStation State of Play event aired Thursday. You can watch the full archived stream on Twitch (opens in new tab)

The Callisto Protocol

What is it? Dead Space co-creator Glen Schofield is back with a new team, and a new game that looks… very Dead Space. Given that the Dead Space series became what it did, that's quite refreshing.
When's it out? December 2.
Is it coming to PC? Yes.
What's new? Two trailers, one from Sony's State of Play above, and one from Summer Game Fest. (opens in new tab)

Final Fantasy 16

What is it? The next mainline Final Fantasy game, in which we're pleased to find that someone is finally questioning the benevolence of those damn crystals
When's it out? Summer 2023.
Is it coming to PC? We hope so! There were some early rumblings about it, but Square Enix has been pretty quiet since then. Almost every main series FF has made its way to PC eventually, including the recent FF7 Remake. It can sometimes take a while, though.
What's new? We got to see quite a bit of flashy, action-packed gameplay that seems to be taking the series to a new level in terms of presentation. There's also a lot of moody dialogue and proper nouns that don't make a ton of sense without context. You know, JRPG stuff. Here's everything we know about Final Fantasy 16 so far.

Resident Evil 4 Remake

What is it? A remake of 2005's Resident Evil 4, the one that more or less changed everything.
When's it out? March 24, 2023.
Is it coming to PC? All the other REmakes have, so probably.
What's new? It was announced. We got quite the sizzle reel of a teaser trailer showing off some familiar moments… and some less familiar ones. Some consider RE4 fairly close to a perfect game and not nearly as in need of a full remake as its predecessors, so a nice, shiny remaster might have done the trick. We're anxious to see just how "reimagined" it will be. 

Spider-Man Remastered

What is it? The formerly PlayStation-exclusive Spider-Man game from Insomniac, now coming to Steam and the Epic Games Store in a Remastered PC edition.
When's it out? August 12.
Is it coming to PC? Yep, this is the PC edition of a PlayStation game that came out in 2018. It seems like every PlayStation-exclusive is going to become a PC game now—it just takes a few years. Sony announced that Spider-Man: Miles Morales is also coming to PC.
What's new? The PC announcement.

Stray

What is it? Annapurna's latest, developed by BlueTwelve Studio, in which you play as a cat who is running around in a world of very sad robots. You should already know if you're in or out.
When's it out? July 19.
Is it coming to PC? Yes.
What's new? The State of Play trailer above.

Street Fighter 6

What is it? The next fighting game in the genre's best-known series.
When's it out? Next year.
What did we see? The reveal trailer above, which shows off a first for Street Fighter: an "immersive single player story mode" with light Yakuza vibes. There are more details and another trailer in our news story, and a Guile gameplay trailer was also shown off during the Summer Game Fest stream.
Is it coming to PC? Yep, it's coming to Steam.


There were a few other games and announcements at State of Play; Sony has collected all the announcements here (opens in new tab).

CoD reveal

The new Modern Warfare 2 trailer says "the ultimate weapon is team," and yet rather than revealing the new Call of Duty as part of a bigger, shared event, Activision chose to just reveal the trailer on its own. Pssh, so much for teamwork. (OK, it did show up at the Summer Game Fest, too.)
