Digital Extremes has announced a new date for TennoCon 2020 Digital Event with that date being August 1st. This move in the date has been made for a couple of reasons with one of those being that it gives the team more time. As with a lot of companies the Digital Extremes team is working from home, and that has had an impact on the planning of TennoCon 2020 as well as getting the content together. Digital Extremes also wants to make sure that what it shows will be content that will be in the hands of players sooner rather than later, instead of making people wait for a long time. Creative Director Steve Sinclair has put out a video announcement. LiveOps and Community Director Rebecca Ford has written a message.
LiveOps and Community Director Rebecca Ford has written a message:
2020 is a year full of change. We went from moving our Fifth TennoCon from a physical to Digital event, and now we’re going one step further and moving Digital Tennocon to August 1st. The reasons we are doing this are very important, so please take a moment to not only adjust your calendars, but review our reasons why we are moving it:
1) It’s a Digital Event – we can give ourselves the time we need.
It’s been a turbulent year! COVID has forced us to adapt to new work from home development realities (and the obstacles that come with that!) and we’ve also had to make changes to our TennoCon plan so we can do it remotely. Because of this, we’ve had to make the tough decision to move TennoCon to later this summer. This will give us the time to make sure we can put on an awesome show – and deliver the magic of TennoCon – to our community worldwide!
2) We have a history with dates and ambition.
As recently as last year, we had immovable dates that put us in less than ideal situations for the game. We are making this choice using our past experience to guide us. We have a lot of Buried Debts in terms of ideas we’ve shown (but not shipped), and we want our TennoCon 2020 presentation to be an unmistakable reveal of what you see is what you get. We don’t want to show a demo and release something months and months later. We want to ship what we show (when it’s ready, of course)!
As for Baro, he’ll be making a second visit in this new date window. We will be honoring the first visit, and simply adding a second!
We will see you on August 1st for an amazing day online. We can’t wait to share it with you.
