The PC Revolution will be televised on and at PC Connects London 2019

The PC Revolution is now. Our sector is about to undergo some colossal changes in the coming years so it's time to get wise and find out what the trends and shifts that are going to affect the sector are.

New innovations such as cloud tech, machine learning and raytracing are going to dramatically change the way that games are made and what is possible for developers, while the blockchain could introduce new ways of engaging with projects. Meanwhile, giants such as Microsoft, EA and even Google are investing some serious cash to ensure gamers can stream content to whatever device they want, opening up releases to an even bigger audience than ever before

Steam's position as the dominant PC games marketplace is starting to wane, with competitors such as Origin and GOG proving more of a threat, newcomers including Discord, Robot Cache and Tencent's own WeGame entering the sector and publishing giants like Activision, Bethesda and CD Projekt deciding to go it alone rather than launch on Valve's platform.

And then there are emerging markets such as China which companies need to be addressed to maximise the potential of their releases.

You can keep up to date with the trends, tech and news that is going to affect the PC games market in the coming years via and our upcoming event, PC Connects London 2019, which is taking place on January 21st and 22nd.

At the show we'll be talking about the state of the market, how to get your game noticed, going behind the scenes on the biggest releases and the newest tech  how to run a games-as-a-service project, as well as the trends and tech that are going to inform the next decade of the PC games sector.
