Geoff Keighley has announced a new partnership with major game publishers and industries to launch the Summer Game Fest, a four month long digital games showcase featuring announcements, in-game events, demos, and more.
Introducing @summergamefest, a new season of news, in-game events, and playable content from the entire video game industry. May – August 2020.
The announcement has stated that Activision Publishing will be part of the Summer Game Fest event, which kicks off in May and ends on August. There is no set schedule yet for when companies will showcase new games and content.
“It’s been a busy quarantine, really doing a lot of listening to where different game developers are and what can help them, as well as listening to fans about who really want to believe in something bigger,” Keighley tells The Hollywood Reporter. “It felt like maybe there’s a chance to start something new from the comfort of home.”
“Everyone’s going to do their own digital events, but how do you find a place that is a central repository of everything that’s happening this summer in games?” says Keighley of the Summer Game Fest. “We’re not trying to compete with anyone, but really trying to be this signpost directory to all the things that are happening.”
