Due to the coronavirus pandemic, many gaming events have been canceled or moved to face-to-face events this year. No one can predict what will happen in 2021, but at least for now, Reed Pop and Penny Arcade are looking for a return to normal. PAX East 2021, PAX West 2021, and PAX Unplugged 2021 are all currently planned as face-to-face events, assuming they are safe.
PAX East 2021 will be held at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center from June 3rd to June 6th. PAX West 2021 will be held at the Washington State Convention Center from September 3rd to September 6th. Finally, PAX Unplugged is planned at the Pennsylvania Convention Center from December 10th to December 12th.
All of these events feature “Unforgettable Panels, Exciting Esports Showdowns, Hands-on Demos, and Future Sneak Peaks for Games.” Fans are looking forward to “new game launches, world first previews, community gaming areas and more”.
Kyle Marsden-Kish, Event Director of PAX, said in a statement:
“We look forward to hosting the show in 2021, but we are first and foremost members of the local communities in Boston, Philadelphia and Seattle. We are with great participants who have achieved PAX for 17 years. We take great care of the health and safety of our industry partners. We are cautiously optimistic about improving the global COVID-19 situation next year, but only if PAX is considered safe. , We are closely monitoring the situation. “
For PAX South 2021, we have a year off and will be back in 2022. Information about PAXAustralia2021 will be shared “within a few weeks”.
