PC Gamer finally revealed the date for the PC Gaming Show 2022, which will be taking place on June 12th livestreamed on Twitch and YouTube. Foregoing another year of having a live event, partially due to the pandemic and probably also because E3 has been canceled, they will be presenting several titles that will be coming to PC over the next calendar year.

Some of the companies taking part in this event will be Tripwire Interactive, SEGA Europe, iBUYPOWER, ION LANDS, Mana Interactive, SUPER PEOPLE, Square Enix, Shiro Games, All In!

"We want the PC Gaming Show to convey just how permanently vibrant this hobby is," says PC Gamer Global Editor-in-Chief Evan Lahti. "PC gaming contains multitudes – it's a big tent of creativity. This year's show puts high-end projects like Arma 4 side-by-side with boutique gems from Klei, tinyBuild, and Maximum Games, stunning indie sci-fi, and an ambitious modding project that builds on the acclaimed Half-Life: Alyx."
"We feel more strongly than ever that the PC deserves its own place amidst the hectic schedule of summer reveals," says PC Gamer Brand Director Tim Clark. "I've been blown away by the sheer quality and variety of projects that we've been able to include, and we can't wait to pull the curtain back on our biggest show yet."
