QuakeCon 2020 will be a digital-only affair in August

QuakeCon 2020 — the 25th annual QuakeCon, in fact — will be an online-only event taking place in early August, its organisers today confirmed.

“This year, due to COVID-19, QuakeCon at Home will be a global, totally online event – kicking off August 7 and ending August 9 – filled with round-the clock programming with special influencer streams, tournaments, surprises, and our very own Bethesda Community teams from around the globe,” a post on the QuakeCon website reads.

A full schedule has been promised “in the coming weeks”.

The event’s merch store is already open, offering up the usual wares in addition to rather adorable Dogvahkiin and Catodemon t-shirts.

Are you excited for an online-only QuakeCon? The traditional event was cancelled back in April of this year.
