Summer Game Fest, don't fall victim to the hype! Geoff Keighley's Warning

Summer Game Fest

On Thursday 9 June 2022, Geoff Keighley will stage the Summer Game Fest. The conference, lasting about an hour and a half, will not, however, focus on new announcements. To reveal it is the same Canadian presenter, presenter and journalist, who invited the players to follow the event without falling victim to the hype.

Keighley announced the tenor of the Summer Game Fest on Thursday 9 June 2022 on Twitter, during a listening space for all those who are interested in the event. “There will be major games, such as The Callisto Protocol, Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2, Gotham Knights and the Cuphead DLC. What I mean is that there will be a lot of games that have already been announced ”, the words of the host and presenter. Keighley's invitation is therefore to keep expectations low. "We are not at The Game Awards," concluded the reporter.| ); }
For obvious reasons Keighley has not yet wanted to announce the whole program of the Summer Game Fest, but his words seem clear enough: beware of delusions, which the risk of being disappointed by a great show is always around the corner. Our advice is to have very low expectations in this regard and wait, as usual, for the event to begin. Keep following geekinco for all the news and announcements in the pipeline.

What to Expect

Last year's Game Fest included our first look at gameplay for megahit Elden Ring, the announcement of Death Stranding: Director's Cut on PS5 and Tiny Tina's Wonderlands. Since the traditional video games event E3 has been canceled for this year, 2033's Game Fest has less competition than normal.

That could mean publishers will be keen to drop some major announcements at this show. So it's definitely worth tuning in.
