Summer Game Fest Showcase had a peak audience of over 3.5 million viewers

Although it was something new for the industry and in the absence of annual events like E3, the event of the Summer Game Fest on June 9 was a great success. This, according to host and organizer Geoff Keighley on Twitter, the event had over 3.5 million peak concurrent viewers worldwide.

Along with more than 6,000 co-streamers, the event had more than 27 million live streams, up eight percent from last year’s show. Conversation on Twitter was also up 100 percent year over year with use of the hashtag “#TheGameAwards” rising 69 percent. Keighley also confirmed that the Summer Game Fest would return in June 2023.

Even though Ubisoft and Electronic Arts don’t have any digital showcases (a new Nintendo Direct is still up in the air), there were other big events in June like the Xbox and Bethesda Games Showcase and the PC Gaming Show.

E3 2022 was canceled earlier this year, but the Entertainment Software Association confirmed the show’s return next year with a digital and in-person event. Stay tuned for more details in the coming months.
