Valve and Geoff Keighley Come Together for The Game Festival: Summer Edition
Valve and Geoff Keighley recently announced The Steam Game Festival: Summer Edition which will provide developers a platform this summer to share their upcoming games. The Game Festival: Summer Edition takes place from June 9th until June 14th and it will showcase some titles that would’ve been at E3 this year if the event wasn’t cancelled. This digital event will be one of many that gamers can expect this summer, with some developers and publishers holding their own digital showcases and others collaborating like Geoff Keighley and Valve. Microsoft recently held an Inside Xbox event that focused on several games coming to Game Pass Ultimate and they may have another event coming soon.
Geoff Keighley recently took to his Twitter account to announce the collaboration with Valve, saying: “For the past few months I’ve thought a lot about new global and digital ways we could celebrate games the summer. Today the announcement of the Steam Game Festival: Summer Edition is the first preview of what’s coming together. The Festival will also expand to more platforms.” We’re thankful that developers and publishers are still finding ways to keep us entertained, engaged and updated on release dates for upcoming titles.
The Steam Game Festival: Spring Edition acted in a way like a GDC replacement and the Summer Edition is likely to do the same for E3, with the Game Festival running along the same dates as E3 2020. After much deliberation, the ESA had to cancel E3 2020 due to COVID-19 and this digital event is one of several gamers can expect this summer. Although gamers can watch The Game Festival: Summer Edition on Steam, as usual, it will also be coming to more platforms according to Geoff Keighley.
