It sounds like Keighley isn’t holding back, as he’s promising a “multi-hour live spectacular featuring new game announcements, special guests from the gaming industry, and more.”

There will also be a new way to watch the Summer Game Fest kickoff show, as it will be broadcast in IMAX theaters. Honestly, a two-story-high Geoff Keighley might be a little much to take, but hey, I’m sure the trailers will look cool.
The biggest gaming event of the year is coming to IMAX Live. Don’t miss #SummerGameFest, in select theatres, June 9.
