PAX South was announced by Penny Arcade co-creators Mike Krahulik and Jerry Holkins this morning during PAX East 2014.
According to the press release from ReedPOP and Penny Arcade, the new show will “build on the foundation of the PAX format” and provides fans with a PAX show for every season throughout the year.
“The love of gaming in all its many forms, whether that be on a TV, a computer, a phone, or even a tabletop, is hitting an all-time high,” said said Lance Fensterman, GVP of ReddPOP. “PAX gives gaming fans one place to get a glimpse of emerging trends and does it in a truly fun and interactive way,” .
“Since its launch in 2004, PAX events have doubled in size almost every year, and our Seattle and Boston events represent the two largest gaming festivals in North America,” added Penny Arcade president Robert Khoo. “We’ve been hearing for years that those in the south had a tough time making it to the northern corners of the country; PAX South has always been a matter of ‘when’ rather than ‘if.'”
PAX South will take place in the very fun city of San Antonio, Texas in January 23-25, 2015. The venue is TBA.
This brings the total of public PAX events to four: PAX Prime, PAX East, PAX Australia and now PAX South.
