Key Events Not Affected
The London Games Festival, the organised collection of summer gaming events designed to "unite the UK games scene," will apparently not be running this year. No reason has been given for the hiatus, but UKIE reportedly plan to focus on making 2012's festival a massive success as it will run alongside the Olympics.
We really want to make London Games Festival 2012 a great destination for interactive entertainment and create a diverse group of events, we're looking to invest more into this event to create content that will encompass skills, entertainment, consumer focus, development, government, accessibility and tech events which will be launched/incubated by UKIE and TIGA. - LGF director Kirsty Payne
Most of the key events that fall under the LGF umbrella will still run unhindered, however, including the Eurogamer Expo and Intent Media's London Games Conference. [GI.biz]
