Bethesda has declared that its annual QuakeCon 2022 event will once again be an online-only affair when it returns this August.
The publisher made the announcement as it revealed the dates for this year’s show. It said “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.”
However, the company says it’s “committed to returning with our full in-person festival in 2023”. When it does, the company promises it’ll have “tons of great new games and hardware for attendees to try out”. That’s on top of a huge BYOC (bring your own computer) party, wild contests and more.
There’s no word what we can expect at the show just yet. Since the last event, Bethesda has released several of its announced games like Deathloop, and Ghostwire Tokyo. In fact, last year’s QuakeCon was the first since the not-insignificant purchase of the company by Xbox. It also brought with it the surprise remastered release of the original Quake on modern consoles.
Of course, there’s the small matter of RPG Starfield and vampiric FPS RedFall, which are both set to release this year. While E3 2022 is no longer happening, perhaps another joint Showcase with Xbox could still be on the cards? We’ll have to wait and see. Quakecon 2022 will take place virtually from August 18 to August 20, 2022.
