Today at PAX East 2014, ReedPOP and Penny Arcade announced the addition of PAX South to their calendar.
Scheduled to debut in San Antonio, Texas from January 23-25, 2015, PAX South will be the fourth PAX Show and the third that takes place in the United States. Other events occur annually in Seattle, Boston, and Melbourne, Australia.
“The love of gaming in all its many forms, whether that be on a TV, a computer, a phone, or even a tabletop, is hitting an all-time high. PAX gives gaming fans one place to get a glimpse of emerging trends and does it in a truly fun and interactive way,” said Lance Fensterman, Global Vice President of ReedPOP.
Robert Khoo, Penny Arcade President, added, “Since its launch in 2004, PAX events have doubled in size almost every year, and our Seattle and Boston events represent the two largest gaming festivals in North America. We’ve been hearing for years that those in the south had a tough time making it to the northern corners of the country; PAX South has always been a matter of ‘when’ rather than ‘if.'”
This is great news for videogame fans in the south. Anybody plan on attending the first event next January? Let us know in the comments below.
