Summer Game Fest will return in 2022

Summer Game Fest returns in 2022

Following a successful two years, Geoff Keighley’s Summer Game Fest will be returning in 2022. Keighley announced this news on Twitter, stating, “While we are hard at work on The Game Awards, I’m excited to share that Summer Game Fest will return in Summer 2022.” The event was first introduced to the world in 2020, following the cancellation of E3 2020, as Geoff Keighley still wanted to provide the gaming community with an event to “celebrate” video games. Earlier in the year, Summer Game Fest 2021 took place, and FromSoftware’s Elden Ring was finally revealed to the public.

It’s likely that we’ll hear more about Summer Game Fest 2022 during The Game Awards on Thursday, as Geoff Keighley will be hosting the awards show like normal. The Game Awards 2021 will be an in-person event, making it one of the first events to do so since the start of the pandemic. Keighley has been teasing what to expect on his social media channels, including an announcement that has been in the works for just over two years.

Although we will have to wait until next year to see what Summer Game Fest has in store for us, we can look forward to The Game Awards 2021, which is scheduled to take place on December 9, starting at 7:30 p.m. ET. Are you excited for The Game Awards, and if so, what would you like to see announced?
