After this event, Games Done Quick will host their Summer Games Done Quick 2022 charity event, but the exact date is still being determined. Last year, Games Done Quick raised a total of $2.9 million for Doctors Without Borders during their Summer Games Done Quick 2021 event, which set a new record for Games Done Quick’s online events. This is not the first time Games Done Quick has broken personal records. Most notably, the organization previously raised $3.13 million during AGDQ 2020, which was the most amount raised in its ten-year history.
