The event will feature somewhere “between 75 to 100” games overall.
Right now anyone and everyone wants to know the exact date on when to expect the July Microsoft show that’s rumored to be sometime around the week of July 20th. But it seems Microsoft has seen fit to drop details on another event seemingly out of nowhere on us, the Xbox Summer Game Fest.
The Summer Game Fest has been a loose collection of shows that has been part of a concentrated effort to effectively replace the cancelled E3 show this year. Microsoft seems to want in on this and announced their own spin on the event. It doesn’t seem to be about unveiling games, though, as much as showing them off. The Xbox Summer Game Fest will see over 60 brand new game demos of titles in various states, from those in the very early stages to those that will be out soon. There is no list as of yet, but some of the games highlighted include Cris Tales, Destroy All Humans!, Haven, Hellpoint, and Skatebird. It’s said there will be somewhere between 75-100 games features in some capacity.
The Xbox Summer Game Fest will run from July 21st to 26th. It’s unclear if this will also be available in some form on PC, as only the Xbox One is referenced. We’ll keep you updated as more details come out.
