After a successful first outing in January the fine folks at Rooster Teeth will be returning to our shores in February next year for RTX Sydney 2017. As the first RTX event held outside of the land of the free and the home of the deep fried chicken snack, RTX Sydney 2016 drew huge crowds from across the country to an event packed with gaming, internet, and internet gaming. 2017's event looks to be bigger with more games, more panels, and more celebrity guests.
"When we launched RTX Australia earlier this year we were thrilled with the turnout and response," said Gus Sorola, Rooster Teeth co-founder and executive producer. "TheRTX brand historically has experienced exponential growth year over year, and we anticipate over 50% growth in 2017. After wetting our feet in the Australian market in January, we’re ready to do more of everything in 2017: more celebrity guests, more first plays of hot new games, and more surprises to delight our fans."
2017's line-up will see the return of Rooster Teeth co-founders Burnie Burns and Gus Sorola, plus the addition of Kinda Funny Games Greg Miller and Tim Gettys, with more to be revealed in the coming months. RTX Sydney 2017 will take place in Sydney from February 4-5 at the new International Convention Centre Sydney at Darling Harbour.
