There’s a lot of questions revolving around what fans can expect from this year’s all-digital Electronic Entertainment Expo event – particularly if some reveals will be hidden behind a paywall. But one person that wants to give back to the gamers without charge is Geoff Keighley.
The host of the yearly Game Awards event, among others, broke away from E3 a while back after they revealed a change in their program to something more “interactive” – before COVID- 19, obviously. And now, Keighley has his sights set on hosting his own summer shindig – the returning Summer Game Fest.
He announced the event just a few hours ago, confirming several reveals, as well as news and interviews on upcoming games, as well as fan-fueled Q & A sessions. Indie developers will also get a chance to shine, thanks to the return of the Day of the Devs event, which will be part of the Fest.
Considered a “free, industry-wide celebration of video games,” the Summer Game Fest was a big hit the last time around, complete with limited-time demos on the PC front. There’s no word as of yet whether those will return or not, but they likely will, what with their popularity and all.
Double Fine Productions and iam8bit will return to host the Day of the Devs event, so it’s likely we’ll see Psychonauts 2 at some capacity. Any other developers that want to get involved, however, can apply on this page. But hurry, you only have until April 9th.
Keighley hasn’t revealed a schedule for the event just yet, but we should know more in the months ahead. Keep an eye out for more deets!
