Electronic Arts, Sega, Sony, Codemasters and more have pledged support for the first Game QA & Localisation forum, taking place June 25-26 in London.
The event will focus on best practices for test plans, QA budgeting and strategy with a mix of keynotes, sessions, panels and workgroups.
"This event is a good opportunity for games QA to put a stake in the ground and show how much it has matured. We've truly become a discipline in our own right," said Chris Rowley, EA's senior director of Certification.
Paradox, Outplay, Ganz, Plarium and Abertay University are also involved with the event. Full details can be found at the official site.
