Game journalist Geoff Keighley is organizing another edition of the Summer Game Fest this year. The first edition took place last year. Leading platforms and publishers will announce new games at the event.
It Summer Game Fest will start again in June, but when exactly and how long it will take has not yet been announced. Last year, the festival consisted of several events spanning four months and big names from the gaming industry including Valve, Sony, Microsoft, EA, Activision and more.
In a newsletter and on Twitter announces organizer Geoff Keighley that this year will once again make ‘leading platforms and publishers’ announcements. This time it will be a ‘concentrated series of events’. It is not yet known which parties will participate.
The Summer Game Fest gets competition from the digital variant of the E3 game fair, which will take place for the first time this year in the week of June 13. Last year, the E3 organization also had plans for a digital festival, but that was canceled. The E3 was canceled at all last year due to the corona pandemic.
Major publishers and console manufacturers are increasingly opting for their own events to present games. While several big names took part in last year’s Summer Game Fest, it didn’t mean they all used the event for their major announcements. Microsoft put down last year, for example indie games in the spotlight and saved more prominent Xbox games for its own event in July.
