Due to the ongoing impacts of coronavirus (COVID-19) across the globe, Melbourne International Games Week (MIGW) will look a little different this year.
While we cannot meet physically in 2020, we are working with our partners to curate a schedule of the very best events that will connect us virtually.
From GCAP and the AGDA’s to Parallels and the RMIT Feedback Forum, your favourite industry events will still take place during MIGW. In fact, some are going to be bigger than ever before.
Due to the impact on large events, PAX Aus will now be a part of PAX Online and will deliver a dedicated stream of content, events, discussion and gameplay for our community – just as if we were sitting together in Melbourne.
PAX Online will take place virtually from September 12-20 before returning to Melbourne in 2021.
MIGW will remain in its timeslot of October 3-11, 2020 and we look forward to (physically) welcoming the world back to Melbourne in 2021.
With so many changes, we understand it will be a year like no other, however, knowing our committed and loyal community, it may just be the best Melbourne International Games Week to date.
Please stay tuned as we work hard to develop the games week schedule.
Until then, stay safe and take care of each other.
