Both Summer Game Fest 2021 and E3 2021 will be competing for people’s attention. Geoff Keighley announced the first of many important Summer Game Fest 2021 dats. The event he hosts will start on June 10, 2021. Its presentations will begin at 11am PT/2pm ET/8pm CET that day. The first stream is known as Kickoff Live.
Keighley also offered supplemental information about the debut event. Kickoff Live will last for “around two hours.” He noted that over 12 games will show up during that show, with some of them being “big games.” In a follow up question, he said they’d be a combination of both new announcements and new details on games people know are on the way.
Here’s the announcement tweet revealing the Summer Game Fest 2021 start date. As you can see, it confirmed the show’s partners and a Weezer performance.
