Joining the recent wave of cancelled convention announcements, TwitchCon staff issued a public statement on the convention’s Twitter account. We’ve transcribed the statement below, as it was posted as a graphic:

TwitchCon San Diego Update…

In March, we made the incredibly difficult decision to cancel TwitchCon Amsterdam. Over the past few months, we have continued to closely monitor the COVID-19 pandemic with TwitchCon San Diego weighing on our minds.

Due to restrictions on large gatherings and ongoing concerns for the health and safety of our community, the Twitch team, and the local San Diego community, we have decided to cancel TwitchCon San Diego this fall. We are gutted that we won’t be able to see all of you in person to connect and show you what we’ve been creating for you over the past year. While we can’t gather in person, we’re exploring ways that we could join forces in an alternate dimension later this year. We’ll keep you posted.

Wishing everyone good health.


The TwitchCon website has yet to update its San Diego section with the cancellation announcement and has not added any sort of placeholder for a possible TwitchCon online event.
