The Future Games Show has reached over 350 million viewers since its debut in June 2020 with a mission to celebrate the most exciting, unusual and innovative upcoming games across all formats.

With previous show partners including Warner Bros. Entertainment, Team17, Koch Media, Konami, Sega and many, many more, you can expect diverse game genres - from puzzlers, to shooters, and beaver-led post-apocalyptic strategy games - with a focus on new gameplay footage and fresh developer insight.

The Future Games Show runs three shows a year, the Spring Showcase in March, a summer showcase event in June, and a Gamescom show in August.

2024 is shaping up as our most ambitious - and potentially surprising - year yet, with some tweaks to the show format, perhaps a new section or two, and lots more to reveal as we head nearer the summer.

We can't wait to partner with even more publishers and developers to share their exciting new games with the Future Games Show audience.

Hayter told GamesRadar: "Games… have changed. They’re no longer 8-bit side-scrollers, played under synthesized, electric-piano theme songs, but massive worlds of fantasy into which players can escape and explore for months at a time. In this era of the Foxdie Virus, we need these games more than ever. Which is why I’m teaming with my favourite former rookie, Meryl Silverburgh, to host the next episode of the Future Games Show. So grab your cardboard box, put on your stealth camo, and make sure that safety’s off… It’s showtime."
