The announcement highlights a few well-known developers like Bandai Namco (Tekken, Elden Ring), Spotlight by Quantic Dream (Sea of Solitude, Under the Waves), and The Chinese Room (Dear Esther, Vampire: The Masquerade — Bloodlines 2) that will showcase upcoming games at the next Future Games Show 2024 showcase. 

"Our Spring Showcase will spotlight some of the most exciting upcoming games in a year that's already been full of surprises," says Daniel Dawkins, Content Director of Games Video & Events at Future. "Palworld, Helldivers 2, and Pacific Drive are just three off-radar titles to have caught the imagination, and it's exactly these kinds of atmospheric indies and inventive AAs that the Future Games Show loves to champion."

The Future Games Show begins at 4 pm EDT local time on March 21 and can be streamed at the following links: Twitch, Facebook, YouTube, X, TikTok, or GamesRadar.
