So far, 2023 is shaping to be an eventful time for gaming come this summer. So far, it is confirmed E3 will not be held by the ESA. Howbeit, that does not mean other companies will be backing out. In that, Microsoft, Ubisoft, PC Gaming Show, and Summer Game Fest are to be held later this June. But that is only just the beginning.
It was also confirmed by Geoff Keighley that Gamescom Opening Night Live kicks off this August. Additionally, Nintendo revealed a Nintendo Live event is to be held in Seattle, Washington later this September. Like clockwork too, QuakeCon is to be held this August as well. The last show confirmed 2023 will be returning to in-person events once more.
This week, Bethesda confirmed that the fan-favorite BYOC is making a comeback this year as it will be hosting QuakeCon in Grapevine, Texas from August 10 – August 13 later this summer.
QuakeCon is our favorite event of the year, and we can’t wait to finally see our incredible QuakeCon community in-person again, celebrate games, and frag all weekend with thousands of friends. For our first year back, QuakeCon 2023 is focusing on the fan favorite BYOC and the players that made QuakeCon the best gaming gathering for more than 25 years.Marty Stratton, id Software Studio Head
“The iconic fan gathering welcomes back its dedicated community with a reimagined and upgraded BYOC (Bring-Your-Own-Computer) LAN party for four days of round-the-clock gaming, a host of fun activities, and meetups for old and new friends. In addition, as in recent years, a full slate of programming will be streamed live on Twitch from the BYOC floor for those unable to make the journey back to the QuakeCon homeland,” the post also reads.
“In addition to the BYOC, many fan-favorite activities will return for ticketed attendees, including Tabletop Village, BYOC community events, and the QuakeCon Finals Party. QuakeCon will also play host to the annual esports finale of the Quake World Championships featuring Quake Champions as well as several vendors and experiences to support the BYOC. A full program, features, activities and layout for the show will be released soon.”
