“We are going to solely transfer ahead with a dwell PAX as soon as we’re assured the present can be protected for everybody.”

On the upside, plans for a bodily, in-person occasion are being redesigned, and an internet occasion will take PAX East’s place. “Since we will’t wait till September to reconnect with the fantastic PAX neighborhood, PAX On-line will return July 15-18,” the assertion continues. This follows the success the corporate noticed in final yr’s digital-only PAX On-line.

“We hope to construct on the success of final yr’s record-breaking occasion and in addition interact with our neighborhood in new methods, such because the Indie Showcase that may happen between now and PAX On-line.” Anticipate extra information about these plans quickly.
