IGN Live Fest Announced Part of Summer Game Fest Week

Today, IGN has announced that they will be hosting a new in-person event called IGN Live Fest. IGN Live Fest will take place the same week as Summer Game Fest. The Summer Game Fest showcase will be held on June 7th and will reveal new information about upcoming games. After the event, industry guests will get a sneak peek to preview some of the upcoming games. The event will give fans a chance to preview games from IGN’s Partners: Amazon Games, Atari, Bandai Namco Entertainment America Inc., Crunchyroll, Giant Skull, indie.io, Lenovo Legion, Netflix, Null Games, PM Studios, S-GAME, Squanch Games, Square Enix, Tripwire Interactive, and more.

In the past, we stated that with the Death of E3, something would come around to take its place. IGN Live Fest, Ubisoft Forward, and Summer Game Fest have stepped in to fill that void. Below is IGN’s announcement of IGN Fest Live.
