PC Gaming Gets Its Own E3 Conference, Will Be Livestreamed via Twitch on June 16th

AMD announced today a new E3 PC Gaming Show that will be powered by PC Gamer, a first-of-its-kind event for developers, publishers, hardware companies, press and fans, that will take place in Los Angeles on June 16th. Presented by AMD, organized by PC Gamer, and streamed live in partnership with Twitch from the Belasco Theater, the show will bring the PC gaming community together under one roof for breaking news and perspective from some of the biggest names in the industry.

Hosted by Sean ‘Day[9]’ Plott, the first announced participants of the show include Dean Hall (DayZ), Blizzard Entertainment, Cliff Bleszinski (Boss Key Productions) and Cloud Imperium Games (Star Citizen).

Matt Skynner, Corp. VP & General Manager, Computing and Graphics at AMD, said:

“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. 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.”

Organized 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.

Tim Clark, Global Editor-in-Chief of PC Gamer, added:

“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. 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.”

E3 2015 will be huge with more press conferences than ever before, so stay tuned for more!
