Summer Game Fest is a fan-first celebration of the future of video games, headlined by an extensive roster of digital events from the world’s top game developers and platforms.

Summer Game Fest Live! featuring Day of the Devs: SGF Edition returns on Thursday, June 9, streaming live from Los Angeles at 11 am / 2 pm ET.

Fans can tune in via all major streaming platforms, including YouTube, Twitch, Twitter, Facebook and more global outlets.

Hosted by Geoff Keighley, Summer Game Fest Live!, will feature world premieres, trailers, news and updates from the world’s top game developers and platforms.

Last year’s Summer Game Fest Live! event featured the world gameplay debut of Elden Ring by FromSoftware, the announcements of Death Stranding: Director’s Cut on PlayStation 5 with Hideo Kojima and Tiny Tina’s Wonderland from Take Two, as well as appearances by Ryan Reynolds, Jeff Goldblum, and Giancarlo Esposito, plus performances by Weezer and Japanese Breakfast.

Co-produced by Double Fine Productions and iam8bit, Day of the Devs: Summer Game Fest Edition will immediately follow Summer Game Fest Live!, providing a platform for creative and diverse games to reach more audiences than ever before. In 2021, Day of the Devs: Summer Game Fest Edition provided a stage for some of the most innovative and exciting indie games of the year, including: Soup Pot, A Musical Story, Axiom Verge 2, Behind the Frame, Death’s Door, Garden Story, Last Stop and TOEM. 

Day of the Devs is the industry’s foremost indie games showcase celebrating its 10th anniversary this year. Over the last decade, Day of the Devs has showcased over 500 games, including hits like Psychonauts 2, Untitled Goose Game, Unpacking, What Remains of Edith Finch, and Disco Elysium, in both in-person and online events.

IMAX Corporation announced that starting this summer, the cinematic thrill of the world’s biggest and best video games are set to arrive in IMAX theaters for the first time when Summer Game Fest Live! and The Game Awards air live in IMAX theaters in the U.S., Canada and United Kingdom. 

IMAX’s partnership will begin with Summer Game Fest Live!, set to air live on June 9 at 11 am PT / 2 pm ET from Los Angeles. It will be followed by The Game Awards 2022 in December, live from Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles. Tickets will go on sale for Summer Game Fest on May 12th at 9 am PT / 12 pm ET.

The 9th annual The Game Awards will celebrate the best games of the year, while also previewing the future of the medium with spectacular world premieres and new announcements. Now the gaming community can gather for the shared experience of blockbuster gameplay reveals, next-generation trailers and surprise new game announcements, hosted by Geoff Keighley and broadcast live in IMAX, the world’s highest quality and most immersive cinema format. IMAX will be broadcasting this event across the Company’s LIVE network, which is currently in over 50 markets in the United States.

“Video games are the most powerful, immersive and spectacular form of entertainment in the world, so it’s only natural to bring them to fans in IMAX, the world’s most immersive cinema format,” said Geoff Keighley, producer, The Game Awards and Summer Game Fest.

“We are thrilled to be a part of these rapidly growing events,” said Megan Colligan, President, IMAX Entertainment and Executive Vice President, IMAX Corp. “The two video game events are a part of IMAX’s continued efforts to diversify its content portfolio with more live and interactive events and we are looking forward to being a part of them for years to come.”
