Find out more about the PC games revolution at PC Connects London 2019

After a smash hit debut earlier this year, PC Connects London is returning for its second round on January 21st and 22nd 2019 and this time we're focusing on the massive changes happening in the PC space.

2019 is the year that everything changes forever. Steam's dominance over the market has begun to wane and new technology will make it easier not only to develop games, but also to play them on any device thanks to advances in cloud and streaming tech - and you can find out how to weather these colossal shifts at PC Connects London 2019.

This year, our conference is made up of five tracks:

Kicking things off is the returning State of Play, which will be taking the pulse of the market as it is right now, with our line-up of speakers and overall smart people sharing data to give an indication of what the current zeitgeist is.

Digital Discovery also makes a comeback, giving attendees insight into how to get games noticed in a saturated marketplace where consumers have more choice than ever.

Codeshop: Design and Development replaces PC Games University, providing technical talks that will take the audience behind the scenes on the biggest games to give them an edge over the competition.

Finishing off the first day is The Long Game which charts the shift from fire-and-forget retail releases and gives insight and advice into running a service-based project - both from a development standpoint and a community/marketing one.

And now the main event - The PC Revolution. This will be looking at the shifts happening in the market right now and looking at what impact they will have on the PC games space. We'll be covering new tech, changes in the retail space, shifting business models and how to capitalise on emerging markets such as China.

We will be announcing our first wave of speakers tomorrow with a wealth of extra talent to be revealed in the coming weeks.
