Summer Game Fest, a months-long serious of game announcements, live shows, in-game events and playable demos has been announce by Geoff Keighley. It should come as no surprise to anyone that Covid-19 is forcing everyone to change their plans.
“Bringing the world together to celebrate video games from the comfort of home. Summer Game Fest is a season of digital video game events from publishers, select playable content, in-game events, and more to be announced.”Summer Game Fest
The Entertainment Software Association (ESA) normally depends on E3 to help kick off the summer with a week long extravaganza each June. Hundreds of games are announced and almost all of the major players in the space participate in some way. But, this year’s show has been cancelled (and rightly so) because of pandemic concerns.
Geoff Keighley, the man behind the annual Game Awards show has stepped in to fill the void this year (and maybe permanently?). The Summer Game Fest will run from May through August and will include everything we have come to expect from E3 and more including In-game events and playable demos.
The schedule is going to be posted soon so we’ll be sure to post that here and talk about it on the EFG Show AND our Podcasts to make sure you are as up to date as we are!
- Bandai Namco
- CD Projekt
- Digital Extremes
- Private Division
- Riot Games
- Suare Enix
- Warner Bros.
This list is pretty great, but I can’t help but notice that Nintendo is missing from the list. Here’s hoping that they will end up being included as the list continues to grow over the summer.
