RDC 2020 Update

Hey developers,

It’s the moment you have all been waiting for: an update on the elusive RDC. We know its been a wild ride but RDC is definitely happening - virtually.

We still fully intend to stick to the same dates in July (the 24-26th). To reflect the new format of the conference, we will be resending updated invitations.

At this time, we can confirm there will be a Game Jam and it will be hosted the week prior. Stay tuned over the next few weeks as we will be releasing more information regarding the virtual conference and Game Jam.

Obviously, RDC 2020 is going to be a little different from previous years. However, we are doing everything that we can to replicate the most engaging and informative aspects of the Roblox Developer Conference as possible in the face of these unfortunate circumstances.

Thank you for your continued patience and understanding. We hope you’re staying safe and healthy.

Thanks,
Developer Relations

I can’t wait for this, should be interesting.

Is there any updates on how invitations will be coming out? Is it for people who were originally going or are they being done in waves again?

Lets hope I’m on the invite list this time if its waves! :pray:

Sticks and stones can break my bones but virtual conferences can never hurt me.

I am so happy that Game Jam will still be happening this year, that makes me relieved! I’m a bit curious though… Will virtual RDC be in like a game with a large amount of players and stuff or no? If so, the max players would have to be like 500-600 players at least. Even though RDC will be different this year, I am still excited about it! Can’t wait to see this year’s Game Jam theme! See you guys at virtual RDC 2020! :smiley:

Guess who’s still not getting invited to RDC???


Since the Game Jam is a week before the main event, does that mean people can participate in the Game Jam without being invited to the main event, or is it still the same as always?

That’s great! Glad we are doing it virtually so we can keep the vulnerable safe.

Does this mean RDC is still going to be invites-only? Or open to every developer?

Since they said “we will be resending updated invitations”, I’d assume it’s still based on invitations.

Does this mean that we’ll be basically having a Bloxy awards kind of thing going on with RDC invitees?

Even under these circumstances, seeing that a lot of effort is being put into this makes me really excited for RDC 2020!

I’m pretty excited to see how Game Jam will work in this form, and I have high hopes for it!
