The Game Developers Conference has determined that GDC Summer will now be an all-digital occasion, eliminating the bodily facet of the rescheduled gathering.

The GDC was initially scheduled for March, however the organizers pushed it again to August after the onset of the coronavirus pandemic. They have been planning on doing the August occasion on the Moscone Center in San Francisco. But now the plans for a bodily occasion are gone, resulting from lingering considerations over whether or not it’s protected to have in-person occasions.

The GDC mentioned that many sport builders are embracing distant working preparations and on-line collaboration, and so the GDC itself was impressed to adapt and ship GDC in a digital format that shall be out there to everybody with an web connection. The occasion remains to be scheduled for August.

Of course, I take credit score for this flip of occasions because the GamesBeat Summit 2020 occasion turned out effectively, they usually’re copying us. (OK, effectively, perhaps the world doesn’t revolve round me).
