GDC Summer 2020 becomes an all-digital event
Posted on April 30, 2020 by Brian(@NE_Brian) in General Nintendo, News
Like previous years, the Game Developers Conference was originally planned for March. However, due to the coronavirus, it was postponed. Organizers hoped to revive the show in August as GDC Summer, but as the health crisis continues to be an issue, it will now be digital-only.
A notice on the official GDC website reads:
We have been continuously reviewing the best ways to serve the game development community over the past few months as the world has continued to adapt to developments.
While we very much look forward to meeting again in person as soon as possible, we are moving forward with a plan to transform GDC Summer into an all-digital event, in order to best serve our community.
As so many game developers embrace remote working arrangements and online collaboration, we’re inspired to adapt and deliver GDC in a digital format that will be available to everyone with an internet connection, and will work hard to deliver the high-quality content and networking opportunities GDC attendees have come to expect.
We believe in the power of gathering our community to share, inspire, and strengthen our industry and are committed to providing that opportunity in August. We look forward to sharing more information about GDC Summer soon.
We previously heard that GDC Summer was planned for August 4 through August 6. It is not currently known if that’s still the plan.
