QuakeCon 2023 Returning as First In-Person Event Since 2019
QuakeCon 2023 will be held in Grapevine, Texas this summer from August 10-13.
Organizer announced The convention, which celebrates Doom, Quake, and other Bethesda games, will return on Monday, marking its first in-person event since 2019. This year’s competition will feature a BYOC (Bring Your Own Computer) event.
“QuakeCon has been our favorite event of the year and we can’t wait to see our incredible QuakeCon community in person again, celebrate the games and connect with thousands of friends throughout the weekend.” “QuakeCon 2023, our inaugural year, will focus on fan-favorite BYOC and the players who have made QuakeCon the premier gaming gathering for over 25 years.”
BYOC events are upgraded with four days of 24/7 gaming, community events, meeting friends, and the annual esports finale of the Quake World Championships. For those who can’t attend QuakeCon, you can watch his BYOC activity on Twitch.
BYOC is back!

QuakeCon has been an entirely online event for the past three years due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Organizers of last year’s event said they were disappointed to keep it online solely due to the uncertainty surrounding the pandemic, but have pledged to return the competition to a fully in-person event.
This year’s QuakeCon brings many changes. This is a ticketed event and admission is limited to his pre-registered BYOC guests. In other words, there is no general admission. The exhibition hall is also off the table as the focus is on the rebranded BYOC event.
