Get ready to celebrate all things id Software and the games made by the studio and distributed by Bethesda and ZeniMax Media, as the new QuakeCon 2021 Digital Event has been announced — which takes place from August 19-21 and will be filled with all kinds of activities and surprises for fans!
While no details other than the digital convention date have been announced, the organizers have stated via press release that more information will be coming this June.
We can’t wait to get back to Dallas with our QuakeCon family, but for the continued safety of our staff, the volunteers, and the community, this year’s QuakeCon will once again be a digital-only event. We’ll have all the Peace, Love, and Rockets – remotely – August 19-21.
We’ll share additional details on the streaming lineup, charity opportunities, giveaways, and more later in June, so stay tuned for more updates.
Originating as a gathering of Quake fans who wanted to meet and play together, QuakeCon has been running for the past 24 years and has shown no signs of slowing down. However due to the ongoing global pandemic, the organizers were forced to cancel the live convention last year — which would have been the 25th annual QuakeCon. As a result, a digital event was announced in its place for August 2020 and this year will be a continuation of that format.
In related id Software news, DOOM Eternal recently added paid DLC skins despite the developers once promised the game wouldn’t have microtransactions.
