Geoff Keighley created Summer Game Fest 2023, which will serve as the season’s primary gaming event now that E3 has been formally cancelled.
It is expected to be a key event for the gaming industry thanks to announcements from Bethesda, Ubisoft, and other prominent game firms.
The massive kick-off broadcast spectacular, which is scheduled to start today, June 8, 2023, will probably be the most significant day. In the past, this event has promised new game reveals, announcements, and much more. Here is all the information you want on what is occurring, when it will occur, and how to witness it all.
What is Summer Game Fest 2023?
A celebration of all things videogames that takes place during the month of June, Summer Game Fest 2023 is exactly what it sounds like.
Launched in 2020 to compensate for industry events like as the E3 and the Fortnite World Cup being postponed, it will return in 2023 and feature press announcements, in-game activities, exclusive playable content, and more.
When does Summer Game Fest 2023 take place?
The Summer Game Fest will begin on June 8, 2023, and will go until the middle of the month.
How to watch the Summer Game Fest 2023 launch stream
The premiere event, which will include “events, announcements, and updates from more than 25 of the industry’s leading publishers, platforms, and developers,” is often the most significant event on the Summer Game Fest schedule.
Since everything that comes after is other industry events and streams being pushed under the Summer Game Fest banner, this is truly the only Summer Game Fest 2023 exclusive event.
The kickoff event will be broadcast live on June 8, 2022 at 12 p.m. PT/3 p.m. ET/8 p.m. BST. The stream will be accessible on YouTube, Twitch, Facebook, Twitter, and other platforms.
