Fans can tune in on May 17 at 6am PT / 9am ET on the publisher’s YouTube channel to see what 505 Games has in store for this year and beyond. The publisher promises that, in addition to updates to previously announced titles, it has “a new revelation from a cult developer”. Tuesday’s showcase will be hosted by former MTV presenter Patrice Bouédibéla and will last for one hour. In addition to revealing new games, the showcase will feature in-depth developer interviews in collaboration with 505 for each game on display.

505 Games has chosen not to suggest any games that might appear in Tuesday’s showcase; however, there is reason to believe that some major projects may be at the event. Last year, Remedy announced that a multiplayer spin-off title for To control it’s on the way. After the highly successful release of the original To control, Remedy secured another co-publishing deal with 505 Games for the next title. Additionally, developer ArtPlay has confirmed that a sequel to their smash hit Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night is currently under development. Both titles could have a good chance of appearing in 505 Game’s spring showcase next week.

505 joins a growing list of publishers creating their own game showcases following the cancellation of E3. Joining 505 Games with independent events are the Summer Game Fest hosted by Geoff Keighley on June 9th, the Xbox & Bethesda Games Showcase on June 12th, and the THQ Nordic showcase on August 12th. Announcements from Sony and Nintendo are yet to come. Players should keep an eye out for what is likely to be a busy season of major gaming events.
