Summer Game Fest returns live in 2024 on June 7th

E3 might be gone, but we can still have fun in the sun. Summer Game Fest was already coming back, announced pretty much immediately after it’s success in 2023, but now we have a date. The show portion of the event will happen on June 7th, returning to the YouTube Theater in Los Angeles. Not a lot more is known, but it’s sure to be another fun show. As always, a big thank you to Geoff Keighley for organizing this awesome event.

INGLEWOOD, Calif. – March 13, 2024 – On June 7, 2024 the 5th annual Summer Game Fest, the global celebration of what’s next in video games, is set to stream live from the state-of-the-art YouTube Theater in Hollywood Park.
