Game Developers Conference Kicks Off, Runs Through Friday

The 2017 Game Developers Conference and Virtual Reality Developers Conference has officially kicked off in San Francisco, California. The annual convention is expected to run through Friday, March 3rd. The Virtual Reality Developer Conference is open for the first time ever and is designed to cater to the unique needs and technology that VR embodies.

Attendees will be able to attend roundtable discussions, panels, lectures and participate in networking with other game developers. 

Following VRDC and the GDC Summits, the main GDC conference will kick-off on Wednesday, March 1. This year, the main GDC conference will feature four Classic Game Postmortem sessions, in which the creators of Sid Meier’s Civilization, Deus Ex, Oregon Trail and Seaman share their unique development processes, inspirations and lessons learned creating some of the most innovative games of their eras. Huge names from across the video game industry will also be hosting sessions during the main conference, including Blizzard Entertainment, Capcom, Eidos Montreal, Naughty Dog, Nintendo, Respawn Entertainment, Riot Games, Square Enix, and more.

It is unlikely anything new will come out of the conference as it is generally tailored to those within the games development industry. However, there are new technologies and more that will be showcased. You can check out Garrett Fuller's thoughts about what we might learn from GDC.
