Geoff Keighley has secured over 30 partners for the event.
While this year’s E3 has unfortunately already been cancelled, the last few years have proven that the game publishers of the world don’t need a singular convention to show us all of their latest news and releases. They just need a singular livestream instead, and that’s what this year’s Summer Games Fest is slated to be.
Summer Games Fest 2022, hosted as always by the Game Awards’ Geoff Keighley, is scheduled to run from June 9 to June 12, where trailers, news, and gameplay from a variety of game developers and publishers will be showcased. This year’s event promises to be an especially interesting one, as Keighley confirmed on his Twitter that they have recruited over 30 publishers to join in.
“This year’s #SummerGameFest will feature events, activities and updates for fans from more than 30 partners, with more to be announced,” Keighley wrote. “It’s going to be a great month for video game fans.”
