GDC 2018 Dates Announced, GDC 2017 Stats Revealed

Dates for the Game Developer’s Conference and Virtual Reality Developer’s Conference in 2018 have been announced.

GDC 2017 is over, and it was awesome. In total, more than 26,000 individuals attended the conference, and over 500 lectures, panels, tutorials, and roundtable discussions were held. 570 companies held exhibits across the Moscone Center including Google, Sony, Microsoft, Amazon, Epic Games, Insomniac Games, Oculus, Valve, and Unity Technologies. VRDC, which was first held during GDC 2016, made its triumphant return for GDC 2017. It was a great show, and gamers have lots to look forward to.

“Every GDC gives us a deeper appreciation of the hard work that goes into every aspect of game production, and every role requires attention and deserves respect. With GDC, we aim to honor the commitment, passion and love that all game creators put into each project, I’d like to think we’ve done that this year,” said Meggan Scavio, general manager of the Game Developers Conference. “Games can be scary, exciting, funny, and above all else, fun. They run the gamut of emotions and themes, and there’s a game out there for everyone. GDC embraces this spirit, and we welcome developers of all backgrounds. The last few months have seen lots of challenges and changes, but also some truly amazing gameplay and VR experiences. If GDC 2017 is any indication, we should be in for a hell of a year for games.”

So, as the GDC 2017 door closes, the GDC 2018 door opens. GDC and VRDC will return to the Moscone Center for GDC 2018 from Monday, March 19 to Friday, March 23, 2018.
