Organizers of the Summer Game Fest have announced that the official website is now being updated with schedules for upcoming events.
In case you missed our prior coverage, The Game Awards organizer and host Geoff Keighley announced the Simmer Game Fest, a multi-month event for publishers and developers to announce games and share their latest updates. The event is clearly intended as an alternative to E3 2020, which was officially cancelled in March (even digitally in April 2020), due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Numerous companies including Microsoft, Devolver Digital, and Ubisoft (but not Bethesda), announced they would be hosting their own digital events around the time E3 2020 would have happened. IGN also stated they would host a Summer of Games in June. It is unclear if this is also part of the collaboration, or a separate event.
Now, the official website has updated with several planned events. Several of these events had already been announced through the official publishers or developers, though there is a surprise reveal coming on May 12th. You can find them all below.
11 a.m. ET / 8 a.m. PT – Inside Xbox. “Get a first look at Xbox Series X gameplay.”
12 p.m. ET / 9 a.m. PT – Sunrise #1. “Join Geoff Keighley for a surprise game reveal.”
