QuakeCon will go digital-only again this year

The strafe-jumping will stay online

QuakeCon will return this year, though it won’t necessarily be back in Texas. The official QuakeCon account confirmed today that 2021’s event will once again be a digital-only event.

“We can’t wait to get back to Dallas with our QuakeCon family,” the statement reads. “But for the continued safety of our staff, the volunteers, and the community, this year’s QuakeCon will once again be a digital-only event.”

QuakeCon 2021 will run Aug. 19 through 21, and there will be more details on streaming, charity, giveaways, and more in June.

Last year, QuakeCon was one of many events that went digital in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. This year, many seem to still be following suit and keeping their events online, from the FPS festivities of QuakeCon to E3 2021.
