Xbox Summer Games 2019 - Announcement & Roadmap

Xbox Summer Games 2019 - Announcement & Roadmap


Welcome to the Xbox Summer Games. In observance of the upcoming Summer season this year, we're presenting a special set of Xbox community Game Nights that will span the next three months [June, July & August] starting on June 21st, 2019. This time of year traditionally represents a break from normalcy. Perhaps you're taking time away from school or work, going on vacation, spending time at the beach, watching or playing sports, hanging out with friends and family.

In this upcoming community project, Summer Games, our vision is to establish a similar casual, cool vibe on Xbox Live. Hanging out and playing with friends during those long, Summer nights. Incorporating sports related activities in the weekly Game Nights. Trying out new games or modes with your pals. Exploring new worlds and making new friends.

The ultimate goal of this event series is to bring people together and have fun in the Summer months. We'll be offering a variety of Game Nights across multiple genres, travelling to many different titles united under the Summer Games banner. Several different Summer related themes will be showcased throughout this series.


Game Nights as part of our Road to Summer & Summer Games series will be updated every Monday in our Weekly Game Night Schedule thread in the Xbox sub-forum, linked here. Expanded descriptions, time zone conversions, and more included. Below is a brief outline of what to expect this month for June.

Road to Summer [June 7th to June 15th]

As a prologue to the series, we're organizing a unique slate of Game Nights to lead us into the Summer Games. The first two weekends of June will see us both travel to uncharted lands and revisiting familiar battlegrounds in the Road to Summer. Some of the titles featured as part of the Road to Summer will be the first time they've been showcased as an Xbox Game Night. This is all meant to get folks educated, prepared and excited about the upcoming Summer Games. 

Shown below is the Game Night schedule for the Road to Summer.

Summer Games [June 21st to August 25th]

Our Summer Games series will kick off on Friday June 21st, the official first day of Summer. Running until Sunday August 25th, we will be presenting a unique array of Game Nights to celebrate and observe the season. Welcome to the biggest party of 2019!

Each weekend going forward we will be featuring at least three different Game Nights, each with their own unique modes and themes. Many of the titles represented will span across multiple genres and tastes. We hope to reach out to as many people as possible who wish to play and connect with the community.

With our first set of Summer Games titles in late June, we wanted to hit the ball out of the park and make a statement right away. The return of our Fight Nights with Mortal Kombat 11, Rocket League coming back for one night only to kick off the Summer Games, Overwatch coming in hot after a kick ass three year anniversary, and our first ever official Xbox hosted Nintendo Switch Night for Super Smash Brothers!!!

We hope you can join us on this epic journey this Summer. We look forward to the many adventures to come and untold stories to be written. Thank you for being part of the community.

How can I attend a Game Night? - For new members/first time Game Night participants, I highly encourage you to add all the hosts as your friend on Xbox Live (Gamertags are listed for every host below). We also encourage you to join the community Xbox Club (all hosts can be found in the Club roster as well). We use the Club for a variety of purposes to unite members of the community and play together. As an extra reminder for new members, please make sure to review our Code of Conduct.

To learn more about the AJSA on Xbox One, visit out our Community Information thread.

For Game Nights and other community activities we use the 'Xbox Live Party' that are created from the Club for communication, gatherings, and other purposes. In the case of an emergency where Xbox Live is down and we need to group up, we will use the AJSA Discord channel as a backup. In our parties we fully accept and make adjustments for people who are shy in groups and/or for people who have no mics.

If by chance you do not have a Game Night host on your friend list, please message the host for an invite to the game/party during the Game Night and then exchange friend requests upon entry to the party. All Game Night parties will be visible to Xbox Club members under the "Looking for Group" section. You can join the party via the Club or through the profile of the host.

If you would like to give advance notice to the host that you would like to participate in a particular Game Night, you are free to do so. If you have any questions, please reach out to any members of the AJSA Xbox One staff and we will be happy to assist you.

All Game Nights are casual gatherings aimed at bringing people together to have a good time and enjoy their games in a group setting.
