Who's Taking Part In Summer Game Fest 2023?
Regarding the Live Showcase itself, Keighley is understandably keeping much of it close to his chest at this time. He has confirmed that NetherRealm Studio's Ed Boon will be taking to the stage to showcase the very first gameplay footage for Mortal Kombat 1, and Remedy's Sam Lake will also be present to show off Alan Wake 2. The latter, sadly, won't be coming to the Switch at this time.
Summer Game Fest has confirmed that over 40 publishers will be taking part in the event this year, including:
Bandai Namco Entertainment
CD Projekt Red
Grinding Gear Games
Magic the Gathering
North Beach Games
Samsung Gaming Hub
Warner Bros. Games
