Valve has announced that it will host Steam’s Game Festival this Summer from June 9 to June 14. These dates may sound familiar since E3 2020 was supposed to begin on June 9 and end on June 11 before it was cancelled.

The online event is going to highlight games scheduled for release in the next year. Game developers will get a chance to show off their upcoming games to gaming enthusiasts worldwide, gamers will be able to try them out, learn more about them, and even add them to their wishlist.

Game developers can submit their games until April 24. In order to be able to submit their game, developers must have a Steamworks developer account in good standing, and their game should be planned for release on Steam before the summer of 2021. Also, developers need to prepare a demo or free playable portion of their game. You can find more information about the festival here.

In addition, Geoff Keighley took to Twitter to share the news about the Steam Game Festival and said that the Festival will expand to more platforms.

"For the past few months I've thought a lot about new global and digital ways we could celebrate games the summer. Today the announcement of the Steam Game Festival: Summer Edition is the first preview of what's coming together. The Festival will also expand to more platforms," reads the tweet.
