The Summer Game Fest 2021 Kickoff Live event will take place on Thursday, 10 June at 11:00 PDT (2 pm EDT). The event will also be live-streamed on the Game Awards YouTube page. After the Microsoft and Bethesda Showcase on June 13, EA will host its own showcase on July 22.
Summer Game Fest features a number of digital and Livestream shows, including a spectacular live kick-off show on June 10, hosted by Geoff Keighley and filled with world premieres of Weezer, Day of the Devs, IAM8bit, and Double Fine. Summer Game Fest will also host The Game Awards, hosted by Keira Knightley, for the first time in 2020, filling the void left by E3 2020.
The Toronto-born producer of Game Awards Geoff Keighley launched the Summer Game Fest ( SGF ) last year as a digital exhibition of game revelations and other announcements for a four-month period. Last year was a seasonal online event that brought together for four months 16 of the industry’s largest publishers – including Microsoft, Sony, Activision, Valve, Bethesda, and Blizzard – in a cavalcade of news, trailers, and game demos. In bringing the event back to SGF this year, Keighley addressed how feedback from recent years has spread.
In contrast to the small and fragmented revelations in the summer of 2020, this year seems to focus more on a smaller number of major events. Summer Game Fests various videos and live streams span 4 months, with some events being smaller than others. While the 2020 Summer Games hosted various “scoops,” there were no major kick-offs or live events this year in response to those who wanted a more conventional big show with revelations and exclusivity.
Summer Game Fest 2021 will be led by Geoff Keighley, the man behind Game Awards and Gamecom. The Summer Game Fest begins on June 10 with its flagship event and, unlike other virtual events and fairs, does not end a few days later. The event has already teased more than 30 games with new trailers, including new revelations and long-awaited updates.
Summer Game Fest 2021 is just around the corner, with festivities kicking off on June 10. Summer Game Fest returns in 2021 with a series of events hosted by several publishers. This will be the second year the event will take place, with Geoff Keighley’s Season of Gaming 2020 making its debut.
The 2021 Summer Game Fest begins Thursday and players can expect more than a few game announcements from popular developers and publishers. Summer Game Fest will also have some great features, with a number of live digital streams featuring a number of well-known publishers and developers such as Bandai Namco, Xbox, Ubisoft, and Sony.
Summer Game Fest opened in 2020 as a three-month event from May to August. Instead of E3 2020, which was canceled due to the COVID 19 pandemic, the Summer Game Fest Livestream event took place, which started in 2020. The event began on June 1 last year and overlapped with E3 2021, which began on June 12. Important game developers and publishers who attended included Activision, Epic Games, PlayStation, and Xbox.
While the E3 2021 is imminent, it is not the only gaming event scheduled for June. In the same month, the 2021 Summer Game Fest takes place, an extensive celebration of all games with announcements, world premieres, and performances. It’s not quite as long as E3 but if the summer game festival of last year is any indication, it will be filled with things to look forward to.
Being at Summer Game Fest every day will be a showcase for developers highlighting new indie titles. Each game will be 90 minutes long and include games from Xbox Game Studios, Bethesda, and Softworks.
The Geoff Keighley Summer Game Fest begins on June 10, the day after E3 2021. The event will begin with a live kick-off show, a two-hour broadcast that will be broadcast live and nationwide on Thursday 10 June from 11: 00 PDT (14: 00 EDT) to 19: 00 BST. This will be the broadcast of Game Fest’s premier event, but there will be more in June.
