The Summer Games Fest, an event Game created by journalist Geoff Keighley and held alone online Organized throughout the summer, it is ideal for catching up with all the physical events that keep getting canceled around the world.

However, the most important thing is that this spectacular festival in Diffusion starts today. Don’t miss out on all the information you need to know when, how and where to follow it from home.
What is the Summer Game Fest?
If you know a little English, you will have already guessed what the Summer Game Fest is all about, which in Spanish could be translated as “Summer Games Festival”. Indeed, it is a set of events Game which will take place throughout the summer of 2021.
To compensate for the cancellation of video game industry events such as the E3 2020 or the Fortnite World Cup, this festival was created last year, which returns this year to celebrate various announcements, events, presentations and exclusive content launches.
When does the Summer Game Fest last?
For now, the Summer Game Fest 2021 will take place between June 10 and the 22nd of July (coinciding with EA Play Live). However, it could be lengthened if other related events are announced. Last year that lasted until Gamescom’s opening night, so maybe that could be the case too.
