Which, sounds a little optimistic - but hey. After GDC 2020 was cancelled
earlier this month due to the COVID-19 outbreak the organisers stated that the annual conference was simply postponed. Though, nothing simple about it. Anyway the new dates are August 4-6, 2020 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, which is when GDC Summer is set to take place.
Where it looks to be a proper Game Developers Conference with talks, round-tables, and a show floor.
We’re excited to share more information about GDC Summer, a three-day celebration of the art, craft, and business of game development. Taking place August 4-6, 2020 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, GDC Summer will be a unique Game Developers Conference experience featuring non-traditional talks and roundtables along-side high-quality technical talks. The GDC Summer Expo will host the industry’s leading companies August 5-6 on a freestyle show floor.
