In a message shared on Twitter this Monday (8), Geoff Keighley confirmed that he will not participate again at E3, focusing on producing the 2021 edition of Summer Game Fest in a shorter and improved way compared to the previous one.
According to Geoff Keighley, organizer of the Summer Game Fest, the period of news and announcements from the game industry will be “more condensed” than the 2020 event. The confirmation was made in response to a question on Twitter, in which a user suggested reducing the SGF’s time for just one week, in order to make it more objective and to allow all fans to follow the news.

So far, nothing has been confirmed about the Summer Game Fest 2021 or the way Keighley is planning to conduct the festivities. Thus, he remains to await more information about the next season of revelations from the gaming universe.
