So E3 is dead. On the bright side, Summer Game Fest is still happening (for now)! Geoff Keighley made sure to let everyone know shortly after his contestant’s cancellation. Many had hoped that E3 would return to its former glory in person this year, but organizers were shady about whether that would even be possible until recently. So it looks like the Summer Games Fest will fill the void of publisher announcements and showcases that we were hoping for with E3 this summer.
Here’s what we know so far about Summer Game Fest 2022.
What is Summer Game Fest 2022?
Like E3, Summer Game Fest is a gaming showcase to promote upcoming games and developers. It’s run by The Game Awards host Geoff Keighley, and works the same way as its year-end counterpart, except it lasts a few days. The Summer Game Fest usually begins with a kick-off event and lasts for half a week. Attendees should expect announcements and updates from major publishers during the festival.
When is Summer Game Fest 2022?
Geoff Keighley confirmed on Twitter that the Summer Game Fest will take place in June 2022. However, the exact dates of the event have yet to be announced. If it’s anything like the past two years, it will probably start mid-week and continue through one of the weekends in the first half of June.
Will Summer Game Fest 2022 be an in-person event?
Nope. Summer Game Fest has always been a digital showcase and will continue to be this year. It’s possible he will have an actual location in the future, but nothing like that has been announced.
Who will be at the Summer Game Fest?
Last year’s Summer Game Fest featured a number of partners, including Epic Games, Riot Games, Bandai Namco, and other big-name publishers. This year’s partners have not yet been named. It wouldn’t be surprising to see many of the same companies there, though.
Where can I watch the Summer Game Fest?
Summer Game Fest will be available on all popular streaming platforms including Twitch, YouTube, Twitter and Facebook. Note that he shares a channel with The Game Awards on Twitch and YouTube. There’s no need to sign up or get a badge — you can just view the show on your streaming platform of choice. It’s free to watch, so enjoy!
