- Geoff Keighley is the host of multiple game events like Opening Night Live at Gamescom and the Game Awards.
- E3 2020 and other physical events have been canceled due to the ongoing global pandemic.
- Today, Keighley has announced Summer Game Fest, a four month event bringing news, digital showcases and more.
Geoff Keighley, host of the Game Awards and Opening Night Live at Gamescom, has revealed an entirely-new project called Summer Game Fest. Running from May through August 2020, this event is four months of news, digital shows and demos from multiple publishers, including but not even remotely limited to: CD Projekt Red, Xbox, PlayStation, WB Games and Bethesda.
In an interview with GamesIndustry.biz, Keighley explained that "You have to open your mind to different ways of getting news about games." He also noted that "[Summer Game Fest] is not a big press conference with 5,000 people in an audience hooting and hollering and cheering. And I miss that stuff. Those things are big moments. So how do we create those new moments in this new world order? I think people have to just accept that it's different. Maybe some things will be even better. And maybe you'll get more c ontent at home."
With this announced and Xbox holding a showcase for third-party Xbox Series X games on May 7, it appears that while E3 isn't happening, the summer will be packed with gaming news. When the full schedule for Summer Game Fest goes live, you'll be able to find it on the official website right here.
