Over the past few weeks, there have been several announcements of various companies across the video game industry hosting their own video game showcase. The list thus far includes most recently Xbox and Bethesda Games combining to host their showcase while e3, the Summer Game Fest and EA Play Live amongst others will commence very soon. The announcements come as no surprise due to the unfortunate result of the pandemic on mass conventions. Due to the pandemic, most, if not all, video game showcases last year were cancelled. However, as the publishers, developers and event organizers realize that online showcases are viable and can still amass both revenue and viewership, companies are slowly confirming their video events thus far. On the flipside however, Blizzard recently announced that Blizzcon 2021 would not be taking place due to the toll of the pandemic. With that being said, Koch Media becomes the latest firm to announce their video game presentation on 11th June 2021. The showcase is sure to provide new announcements and updates on previous titles.
Koch Media is a massive player in the video game industry and has a ton of companies and developers under its umbrella. The list includes the Deep Silver Publishing Label which owns studios that publish video games such as Saint’s Row, Dead Island, Homefront, Kingdom Come: Deliverance and Timesplitters. Other titles under the umbrella include Dead Island, the Metro franchise, Wasteland, Maneater, Shenmue and Hunt: Showdown.
At the moment, it is difficult to speculate what major announcements the company may have. The titles mentioned have had recent updates, content and ports. But, Koch Media would not host a press conference without some major plans. Based on that, fans can certainly expect a great show. The event will take place on 11th June at 3P.M. ET. The company has not yet confirmed how the event can be viewed, but stay tuned to COGConnected for more information!
