QuakeCon 2020 Will Be A Digital Event This Year
After cancelling the in-person show, Bethesda announces QuakeCon 2020 will take place as an online event.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this year's QuakeCon event will take place as an online event. Bethesda has announced "QuakeCon At Home," which is described as a global online event celebrating the company's games and revealing new stuff. The in-person QuakeCon was canceled in March.
QuakeCon at Home will take place August 7-9. Viewers can expect livestreams, tournaments, charity fundraising, and "a few fun secrets."

QuakeCon, which has been running since the '90s, was scheduled to take place from August 6-9 in Texas this year. Like other gaming shows, it was canceled due to the global pandemic.
QuakeCon is a beloved fan event that, among other things, is known for hosting the "world's biggest LAN party," but obviously that will not happen this year. Bethesda is known to make big announcements about its upcoming games during the show, and that is expected to continue this year.
Some of Bethesda's upcoming games--at least those that have been announced so far--include Ghostwire: Tokyo and Deathloop. The company is also working on The Elder Scrolls VI and Starfield, but those games are expected to remain under wraps for a long time.
