- Game Developers Conference (GDC) was initially set to be held the week of March 16.
- It was postponed a few weeks ahead of the event due to COVID-19.
- The organizers have now announced a new 3-day GDC Summer event to he held in August.
The organizers behind GDC have found a new date for the event. The conference was originally intended to be held this week in San Francisco, but had to be postponed due to COVID-19. According to the announcement on GDC's website, the new event will take place over the course of three days in August., shortly before Gamescom 2020 which will be held in Germany a couple of weeks later.
GDC Summer will be held from August 4-6 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, where it was set to take place in March. The event is said to be a unique GDC experience that will retain "the same high level of expert-led talks as the traditional GDC." There will be a freestyle two-day expo show floor on the 5th and 6th.
A new community partnership program will also roll out alongside GDC Summer so that developers can host meetings and other gatherings outside of the event space.
It's unclear just how long the COVID-19 outbreak will last, so the team at GDC is constantly monitoring the latest information from health officials and the CDC.
Not happening in a million years... There is no way normal international traffic will be reopened by then...
Yeah I am not sure we will be ready by then. We aren't to the tipping point in the US and Italy is still having massive death rates.
