Updated at 12:09 with new info about Sony Santa Monica’s TBA content.
You can count the number of days until the start of the Electronic Entertainment Expo trade show in Los Angeles on two hands. As the event approaches, we continue to discover more tidbits to help gamers get hyped.
This morning, livestreaming platform Twitch released the schedule of new games it will show off during the industry’s biggest event. The itinerary includes known quantities like Harmonix’s Fantasia: Music Evolved and Saints Row IV from developer Volition, but the schedule also has a lot of “to be announced” titles.
GamesBeat Next 2023
Join the GamesBeat community in San Francisco this October 24-25. You’ll hear from the brightest minds within the gaming industry on latest developments and their take on the future of gaming.
Two of the most interesting TBA games include one from God of War: Ascension developer Sony Santa Monica and the former Call of Duty guys at Respawn Entertainment.
Respawn chief executive Vince Zampella previously tweeted that his studio will show up to E3 with something in hand.
This Twitch schedule, however, is the first concrete confirmation we have that the company truly intends to show off its first game. Interestingly, Respawn follows up Bungie’s Destiny and Infinity Ward’s Call of Duty: Ghosts on Twitch’s broadcast channel on Wednesday morning.
As for Sony Santa Monica, the versatile studio only just released God of War: Ascension in March. The company plans to reveal new content for the game and will stream it on Twitch at the scheduled time.
We’ll have more on Respawn, Sony Santa Monica, and everything else from E3 starting next week.
