Valve delays summer Steam Game

Valve’s impending Steam Game Festival, originally scheduled to begin June 9, has been delayed by one week. The “Summer Edition” of the Steam event will now run June 16-22, Valve said in a news release.

The summer version of the Steam Game Festival was supposed to take place during what would have been the week of E3. Valve promises time-limited demos or “short playable experiences” from upcoming games, and a chance to connect with participating developers of those games, during the event.

Steam Game Festival: Summer Edition was the third such event coming to Steam. The inaugural event coincided with Geoff Keighley’s annual The Game Awards show, and ran for 48 hours. A spring edition of the event ran in March, during what would have been the annual Game Developers Conference, which was canceled due to concerns related to the spread of COVID-19.
