Unlike E3, which was confirmed cancelled this year, Bethesda will be continuing with QuakeCon 2022 this year, and the publisher has released their schedule for this upcoming event. However, it will be coming with bad news as the event will be digital only, with the upcoming events tailored towards the online-only environment.
QuakeCon 2022 will be held from August 18 to August 20, 2022, and here’s the full announcement from Bethesda:
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.
Despite this, there is still a silver lining for next year, as Bethesda has confirmed that the event will be returning to a physical one for 2023. Stay tuned for further news on that one, as well as future gaming events here at MP1st!
