With the Coronavirus pandemic continuing to spread, relevant gaming events are being canceled across the words. Today Bethesda announced that QuakeCon 2020 has been canceled.
The notice was delivered via the official Twitter account of the event, citing logistical challenges and uncertainties due to the pandemic.
While August is still far, Bethesda mentions that it would not be possible to complete the work and planning involving partners, vendors, and volunteers required to make the event a success.
That being said, the note ends with a hopeful note as it mentions that the developer hopes to come up with other ways to celebrate the spirit of QuakeCon in August.
Of course, no details have been provided, so we’ll have to wait and see. Hopefully, Bethesda and id Software will manage to organize an online event that their fans will be able to enjoy.

Today we also learned of the cancellation of the Arc World Tour 2020, while the organizers of Gamescom are expanding their plans for online coverage, but haven’t yet given up on the physical event in Germany, with a decision to be taken about it in mid-May.
