Bethesda Softworks has today issued a statement confirming that their annual Quakecon festivities will be all-digital this year due to the uncertainty of the COVID-19 pandemic, with plans to offer the festival in-person in Dallas from 2023. The event will be held from 18 August 2022 until 20 August 2022 inclusively, with the perk being that fans around the world can once again partake.
The full statement surrounding QuakeCon 2022 issued by Bethesda can be found below:
This year’s QuakeCon will once again be a digital-only event, August 18-20, 2022.
Like you, we’re disappointed to not return to Dallas this year. An event of this size requires months of planning, and in this case, we had to make decisions when there was still too much uncertainty to commit to successfully executing an in-person QuakeCon.
The QuakeCon team is already working hard to put together exciting new streaming programming, online meetups, giveaways, charity opportunities, the virtual BYOC, and more, and we will announce more details in June.
We’re committed to returning with our full in-person festival in 2023, and already looking forward to reconnecting with friends, a massive BYOC packed with your latest custom PC creations, our wild contests, and tons of great new games and hardware for attendees to try out.
We can’t wait to see you online this August!
