News event E3 2022 cancelled, no time to cry that Summer Game Fest is already coming
That was the sad news at the end of March. While speculation was rife, the 2022 edition of E3 has simply been canceled. An expected but necessarily disappointing decision which has nevertheless managed to delight some, starting with Geoff Keighley who announces the return of his Summer Game Fest for next June.
E3 is dead, long live Summer Game Fest
We learned recently with some sadness that the new 2022 edition of E3, the most important video game event of the year, was purely and simply canceled. It must be said that the situation of the show was still unclear, after a first cancellation in 2020 and an entirely digital 2021 edition. In 2022 the E3 was to return in the same format but will ultimately not take place, whether in physical or digital.
Just got an email… It’s official, E3 digital is official canceled for 2022. Lots of mixed feelings about this…

If this information is enough to disappoint more than one, there are still a plethora of major events in 2022, starting with the Summer Game Fest. Faced with the sad news, Geoff Keighley took the opportunity to announce the return of his living room. And it is already time to prepare, since this return is coming very soon.
The Summer Game Fest is back in June
It’s hard to know if the timing is right, but it seems that Geoff Keighley is delighted to announce the return of his video game event. If the journalist had already confirmed the 2022 edition of the Summer Game Fest, this time we learn the date of the event. And the video game festival is coming very soon, next June more precisely.
Excited to share that @SummerGameFest will return this June with a slate of events. We’ll be producing another Kickoff Live show with announcements, news and first looks.
Much more to share in the coming weeks, along with some very cool new elements for ’22. pic.twitter.com/jjXLG8Xueh

For now, we still know little about the new edition of the fully digital event. Anyway, Geoff Keighley claims to reveal more to us in the coming weeks. According to the journalist, we can expect “many announcements and first glimpses” of the upcoming games. We will then have to wait to find out what is happening on the industry side, before the veil is completely lifted next June. With E3 now buried for good (at least this year), the Summer Game Fest has all the cards in hand to reign supreme next summer.
