While E3 has been cancelled, it's become increasingly clear that the show must go on. For developers, this means joining the Guerilla Collective.
What is the Guerilla Collective? It's a "digital games festival" where developers will unveil announcements, trailers, and reveals from publisher and developers from around the world. It will be hosted by Greg Miller and produced by Media Indie Exchange (The MIX) with Kinda Funny Games Showcase also participating.
There's a lot of publishers and developers that will be included over the June 6 - June 8 digital festival, including Larian Studios, Paradox Interactive, Funcom, Rebellion, and Versus Evil, all decent developers that should have some interesting announcements for us all.
The Guerilla Collective is currently taking developer and publisher applications, so if you're not signed up and have a swell new announcement to make, you definitely should consider it here. You'll only have until May 15, 2020, to do so, so get those applications in quick.
The Guerilla Collective will stream from June 6 to June 8, starting at 10 AM Pacific Time. If you have a terrible memory like me, sign up here and be reminded in time.
Good. E3 has needed to adapt or die for a long time now, and watching E3 has been an exercise in pain over the past decade. It's so boring that they even make legitimately cool announcements sound flat and uninteresting. Watching game developers stutter through lame skits has always been cringeworthy and boring, so hopefully there is a lot less of that this time around. Essentially, less E3 nonsense and more Nintendo Direct-style announcements please. It's supposed to be entertaining for gamers, not for everyone, and E3 forgot that. A gamer-focused announcement stream would be great, but who knows what we'll get. I'm not holding my breath.
What do you think of this announcement? Are you happy that E3 is being replaced? Do you think this will be any better? Let us know in the comments!
