The organisers of the Leipzig GCDC have announced that Julian Eggebrecht of Factor 5 will give the opening keynote speech at this year's event, with Peter Molyneux planning to present a retrospective of Lionhead's games.
Eggebrecht and Molyneux join a line-up of speakers from the US, Germany, Austria, the Netherlands, Finland, Sweden, and the UK.
"This year's conference line-up is looking to be our best yet, with many more high-profile industry speakers being confirmed and a truly international group coming together from more than 20 countries," said Frank Sliwka, project director of GCDC.
"Our goals of growing the conference and expanding the lectures and roundtables to incorporate speakers with differing perspectives and insights are on track and we look to deliver an exciting and informative program this year."
Additional GCDC speakers and keynotes will be announced in the coming weeks.
