Twitch has announced that its TwitchCon event will be hosted next week. However, while usually hosted from a conference center, this one will take place virtually.
TwitchCon Becomes GlitchCon
TwitchCon is a convention that takes place twice a year and first began in California in 2015. It’s an event designed to showcase the best that Twitch and the gaming community has to offer. Anyone can attend to meet streamers, play games, watch esports, and hang out.
In 2020, TwitchCon was due to be hosted in Amsterdam and San Diego. However, the global coronavirus pandemic put pay to those plans and both events were canceled.
Happily, TwitchCon is still going ahead this year, though it will now be entirely online.
As announced in a tweet, TwitchCon has been renamed GlitchCon and will take place on November 14, 2020.
Not much is known about the event yet and the 30-second trailer doesn’t provide many answers.
“Numerous glitches have been observed on Twitch,” reads the video. “Our engineers have been working around the clock to debug the issue.”
Start Streaming on Twitch
TwitchCon is a celebration of everyone who streams on Twitch. If that inspires you to try streaming yourself, don’t be shy. It’s easier than you think to go live with programs like OBS and Streamlabs.
