The long-running Zenimax operated ‘QuakeCon’ will once again be a digital-only event for 2022.

Taking place on August 18-20, it will be the third year in a row that QuakeCon will be opting to go all-digital in the wake of ongoing uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic. Despite this, plans are supposedly in place to return to a physical gathering in 2023.

As mentioned in the statement on Twitter, more details surrounding the event will be announced in June, with plans to put together “exciting new streaming programming, online meet-ups, giveaways, charity opportunities, the virtual BYOC, and more”.

With the event generally attracting around 10,000 attendees, it’s no surprise that QuakeCon is opting to be extra cautious for the time being.

What do you make of QuakeCon going all-digital for a third year running? Are you ready to go back to physical events? Let us know.
