of André Linken
The organizers of the Game Developers Conference have announced a new date for the recently canceled event. The GDC 2020 is now scheduled to take place in San Francisco from August 4 to 6, 2020. Due to the corona virus, the fair was canceled for March.

The original plan was for this year's Game Developers Conference to take place in San Francisco from March 16-20, 2020. However, due to the global corona virus and the associated effects, the organizers had decided to postpone the event until a later date. However, no new date was known – until now.

As the organizer Informa Tech has meanwhile announced, the GDC 2020 is to take place this summer. The organizers have planned August 4th to 6th as the event, and the event location is the Moscone Center in San Francisco. On the official website you can already find information on the prices for the event, which range from $ 99 to $ 599 – depending on the time of the order. Among other things, numerous panel discussions with various people from the industry, presentations, lectures and other actions are planned for the GDC Summer. Incidentally, the "Freestyle Show Floor" is scheduled for August 5th to 6th.

However, you should also enjoy the new date for the Game Developers Conference with some caution. At present, even experts cannot estimate how the situation around the current corona crisis will develop. It could therefore be quite possible that the August date for the GDC may also falter again. So keep a close eye on our news section so you don't miss any news on this topic.
