Today brings word of a new online video game event, the Guerrilla Collective, which will bring three days of game reveals, interviews, and news.
In the wake of E3’s cancellation, and the ESA forgoing any online experience, other experiences have begun to pop up to help give gamers a little bit of that magic. From IGN’s Summer of Games, the digital continuation of EA Play, and Xbox 20/20, studios and media are trying to make things work. Today, we can add in the Guerrilla Collective.
From June 6-8th, the Guerrilla Collective will bring publishers and developers together for three days of game news and reveals (promising to feature more than 60 games). The events will include the, already revealed, return of the PC Gaming Show, as well as the Future Games show. You can learn more about what each will bring to gamers via the announcement below:
The June 6th lineup is today announced as a packed day of the latest news for every platform. At 10:00 am PT, the world’s first Guerrilla Collective Live will air, hosted by Kinda Funny’s Greg Miller. The PC Gaming Show returns triumphant starting at 12:00 pm Pacific Time with all the latest news and information about the PC gaming space. The Future Games Show presents reveals, developer interviews, and wholesome gaming chatter starting at 2:30 pm Pacific Time.
Also part of IGNs ‘Summer of Gaming’ and GameSpot’s ‘Play For All,’ the Guerrilla Collective is a truly agnostic, completely player focused initiative to bring gamers and developers together to celebrate games during a difficult time.
Working together, the Guerrilla Collective and other notable publishers and developers have been excitedly chatting, to ensure players have a place to go to search for their gaming fix June 6-8 as part of other initiatives throughout the summer.

The Guerrilla Collective is produced by Media Indie Exchange (The MIX) in partnership with the Kinda Funny Games Showcase. The MIX is an indie-focused group that runs events every year at conventions like GDC, E3, gamescom, PAX West and more. Kinda Funny is a five-year-old, San Francisco-based podcast and YouTube company celebrating and critiquing video games to an audience of hundreds of thousands of fans. In 2018, the company launched the Kinda Funny Games Showcase, a video event spotlighting more than 60 great titles.
On one hand, it’s a bummer to see big events like E3 not happening this year. But on the other hand, it’s been impressive to see how many people have banded together across the industry to still bring fun events directly into gamers’ homes. As always, we’ll have coverage of the shows, reveals, and all the news you care about.
