This is an incredible time for PC gaming, with more powerful and affordable hardware than ever before, thousands of games available through Steam, Origin and other platforms, and millions of viewers regularly watching esports events. The PC Gaming Show is a call to the PC community to come together to celebrate this era, and the innovations that lie ahead.
“At AMD, our focus is on driving gaming innovation in all possible ways. The PC Gaming Show embodies the spirit of innovation, openness and community that’s part of our DNA – delivered by gamers, for gamers,” said Matt Skynner, Corp. VP & General Manager, Computing and Graphics at AMD. “The time is right for a PC-focused event in the week of E3 and we’re honored to be part of bringing the industry together.”
Organised by PC Gamer, with support from Presenting Partner, AMD (NASDAQ: AMD), the inaugural PC Gaming Show will see participation from a range of game developers, including Blizzard Entertainment, Bohemia Interactive, Cloud Imperium Games, Tripwire Interactive, Square-Enix, Obsidian Entertainment, Paradox Interactive and Humble Bundle among many others.
“We’re living in a golden age of PC gaming, but unlike other platforms the PC has no format holder, no marketing department, and—until now—no event during E3 week purely devoted to it,” said Tim Clark, Global Editor-in-Chief, PC Gamer. “We think a show like this, which brings together people from every corner of PC gaming to celebrate the exciting things happening, is long overdue. We hope you’ll join us, in person or on stream, to be part of it.
“PC gaming is experiencing an extraordinary growth spurt,” said Shaun Prescott, Australian editor, PC Gamer. “It boasts a creative and passionate player base, and burgeoning technologies like VR will ensure it’s the dominant platform for many years to come. Now is a better time than ever to bolster the global community with a high profile show that showcases what PC gaming is all about.”
