And while before we didn’t know the target date for the grand return of GDC, it was just announced last night. And it’s a little… let’s call it “ambitious”. Because they’re gunning to host it again in August 4, calling it “Summer GDC.”
From a press release:
"Safety remains the GDC organizers’ paramount concern and the GDC team will continue to monitor the latest information from health officials to ensure a safe and compelling event for everyone at GDC Summer.”
I would love it if we could contain the pandemic by then, but given how fast it’s spreading and the consistent failures of the US government to react appropriately, I seriously doubt it will be. And since everyone will be pinching pennies in the following months… who’d be willing to even make the trip?
But who knows. Maybe they know something I don’t. I really hope they do.
