E3 2020 is no more, but June could still very well be a big month for gaming. A number of developers and publishers are exploring different plans, including digital events. Gaming website IGN is also stepping in with its own initiative.
IGN today announced a new Summer of Gaming event, which will feature “live broadcasts and on-demand programming”. Expect to see “publisher presentations with IGN pre and post discussions, remote developer interviews, hands-on demos and preview impressions, gameplay, and news segments recapping the biggest announcements.” Confirmed participants thus far include 2K, Square Enix, SEGA, Bandai Namco, Devolver Digital, THQ Nordic, and more.
IGN’s Peer Schneider said that Summer of Gaming “will be a key moment for publishers and developers to connect with the audience worldwide”.
The Summer of Gaming event will be held in early June. More details will follow in the weeks ahead.
