QuakeCon 2012 | Full Panel Schedule Announced

Posted by: Sean Colleli at 7/26/2012 4:59 AM
QuakeCon 2012 is mere days away and while they previously announced their speakers, now the entire schedule is available online so that con-goers can plan their trips. id honcho John Carmack (fun fact--did you know he founded his own aerospace company?) will kick things off with his keynote at 2PM on Thursday August 2nd. The following six days will host a plethora of panels and events spanning the game industry's brightest talent. I'm looking forward to what the Valve and Bethesda people have to say--I've always thought it was pretty cool how there was a "no hard feelings" vibe between Valve and id, even though they're ostensibly competitors in the FPS market.

Check out the schedule after the jump and update your Quake plans accordingly.
