Meta announced today that its third Meta Quest Gaming Showcase will take place on June 1 at 10am PT.
Meta broke the news today in a blog post, alongside the short teaser trailer embedded above. In the last few seconds of the teaser, it transforms into a barren sandy landscape with a horned helmet lying on the ground nearby – no doubt a teaser for an announcement to come.
Meta says the showcase will feature 40 minutes of content, including a new pre-show featuring game updates and trailers, as well as a post-show developer roundtable. In terms of the actual main show content, Meta says to expect "new game announcements, gameplay first-looks, updates to existing games" and more. As we've written about before, many of Meta's big Quest games remain missing in action, so here's hoping we get some updates on those.
The main show kicks off at 10am PT on June 1, hosted once again by Oculus Studios Executive Producer Ruth Bram. It will be available to stream on Twitch, Facebook, YouTube and in Meta Horizon Worlds, with the pre-show beginning at 9:45am.
This new date marks a shift for the showcase, which in previous years took place in April. The move to June puts it in the same calendar ballpark as many other planned showcases across the gaming industry, including our very own UploadVR Summer Showcase set for mid-June. We're partnering with IGN once again to bring you a showcase packed full of exciting new VR announcements – we're responding to prospective participants this week and have already glimpsed some exciting things lining up for the show. Stay tuned for more details as we get closer to June.
