Quake World Championship confirmed to be hosted at QuakeCon 2023
The biggest Quake tournament of the year has been confirmed to be held at QuakeCon 2023 in Texas, USA during August 10-13.
In a post by QuakeCon on Twitter, the organizer confirms that QuakeCon 2023 will be an in-person event held at Gaylord Texan Resort & Convention Center in Grapevine. The festival is an iconic event for Quake-lovers, dating back as early as 1996.
Due to the covid-19 pandemic, QuakeCon held the event online for three years in 2020, 2021 and 2022, and the same went for the prestigious $150,000 World Championship in 2020 and 2021. In 2022, last minute news revealed that the 2022 Pro League Finals would be held in Bucharest, Romania, however as a closed studio event only for players.
This year the conclusion of the fourth season of the Pro League will be a spectator event again, returning home to where the curcuit once started in the 2019 kick-off.
Another post will follow with more in-depth details about the festival as a whole.
