The Summer Game Fest 2022

By Brian Crecente

The Summer Game Fest is the world’s first completely digital global celebration of video games, and it’s back! For the third year in a row, gaming glory will be celebrated across a week this summer. And with E3 taking another hiatus, the show couldn’t be more important for fans of video games.

This year’s online festival kicks off live with Geoff Keighley on June 9 at 11 a.m. PT. You can watch the kick-off live on Twitch, YouTube, and Facebook. The Summer Game Fest runs through June 12 and you can expect a number of big publishers to pepper the month with their own events.

While we don't know the specifics of what we’ll see this year, you should expect big news. Last year’s Summer Game Fest, for instance, saw a Elden Ring gameplay trailer, news about Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands, and The Anacrusis, to name a few.
