IGN Announces “Summer of Gaming”, A Digital E3 Replacement

Earlier today, IGN announced their event ‘Summer of Gaming’, a digital gaming conference that will start this upcoming June. IGN EVP and general manager Yael Prough stated:

“More and more people are turning towards video games for entertainment and escapism…we’re excited to bring this Global, Digital Event to our audiences and partners- as this will be an event not to be missed.”

Since this year’s E3 has been canceled due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, this digital outlet will be one of the only places that developers can show off their new creations.
