You can also expect day one to include a Day of the Devs indie showcase with iam8bit, and of course some world premiers and other gaming goodness.

Partners this year include 2K Games, Activision, Bandai Namco, Blizzard, Capcom, Devolver Digital, EA, Epic Games, Gearbox, Hi-Rez, PlayStation, Riot, Sega, Square Enix, Steam, Ubisoft, Warner, Xbox, and plenty of other developers and publishers.

Organizer Geoff Keighley said to expect this year’s event to be “more condensed” than its debut in 2020.

The first Summer Game Fest debuted last year in May and was a four-month-long series of events featuring news and games.

This year’s event will also see Valve return with its demo-laden event Steam Next Fest and there’s also the EA Play Live event in July.
