It really feels like Summer Game Fest 2023 has only just ended, yet here we are gearing up for another look at what Geoff Keighley has up his sleeves for Summer Game Fest 2024.

We're mere weeks away from the opening showcase at this point, so naturally, information is being pumped out at a rather alarming rate to make sure that everyone and their gran are aware of Keighley's plans.

So let's get to it, hm?
