Meta has announced the return of its VR showcase (Meta Quest Gaming Showcase) on June 1st, in a Save the Date notice. The event will include new game announcements for the Meta Quest, a pre-show occurring prior, and a developer panel taking place after the showcase.
Although VR is often regarded as niche, it constitutes a significant part of the gaming industry. The popularity of headsets may differ, but the Meta Quest 2 undoubtedly stands among the top contenders. Consequently, Meta Quest 2 owners should consider marking their calendars for the showcase’s date.
The Meta Quest Gaming Showcase stands as the main VR-focused event among several events occurring this summer. Following the showcase, Summer Game Fest kicks off on June 8th, with the Xbox Games Showcase and Starfield Direct taking place on June 11th. Currently, fans anticipate a PlayStation Showcase from Sony and a significant Direct showcase from Nintendo.
It’s uncertain whether these events will happen during the busy month of June or towards the end of May. However, if they do occur, fans can look forward to announcements in the upcoming weeks ahead. We”ll for sure keep you posted right here on GLN and on our social media outlets too.
