If he declares here that the Summer Game Fest 2021 will be more condensed, it is to then specify that, unlike last year when it was spread over four months, the event will not last more than a month. It will start with Day of the Devs, a virtual presentation organized by Double Fine and Iam8bit, which appeals to independent developers wishing to show their productions there.
The Summer Game Fest banner is used to bring together dozens of presentations, announcements, developer talks and demos. All this will be followed online, just like E3 2021, which will be held from June 15 to 17, or the Steam Neo Fest.
