It’s official: New York Comic Con won’t be occurring this 12 months. Instead, like San Diego Comic-Con in July, it will likely be changed by a completely digital occasion hosted on YouTube. This information will come as a shock to nobody, contemplating October-based occasions like Universal Studios’ Halloween Horror Nights have already been known as off.
The digital occasion will companion each NYCC and its sister conference, MCM Comic Con London, for “New York Comic Con’s Metaverse,” which boasts digital occasions like panels with studios and publishers, fan occasions, and networking alternatives. The digital Metaverse occasion will happen on the dates NYCC would have been held, October 8-11. But it won’t be the model’s first run at a digital occasion.
On the weekend of August 13-16, NYCC’s mother or father firm ReedPop will likely be internet hosting a Metaverse digital occasion to mix among the points of interest that will have been held at occasions like Emerald City Comic Con, MCM Comic Con Manchester, and FloridaSuper Con.
In a press release, the corporate ReedPop promised they are going to be rolling out new bulletins and schedules for the digital occasions because the dates draw nearer. Updates, as effectively was visitor bulletins, digital occasions, and viewing protocol might be discovered at findthemetaverse.com.
With any luck, the digital occasion may have extra success in producing fan pleasure and engagement that the digital SDCC did this year–which, sadly, failed to garner any real attention.
New York Comic Con’s digital occasion will likely be held October 8-11.
