"This is an incredible time for PC gaming, with more powerful and affordable hardware than ever before, thousands of games available through Steam, Origin and other platforms, and millions of viewers regularly watching eSports events. The PC Gaming Show is a call to the PC community to come together to celebrate this era, and the innovations that lie ahead," organizers said in a press release.

"We're living in a golden age of PC gaming, but unlike other platforms the PC has no format holder, no marketing department, and-until now-no event during E3 week purely devoted to it," added Tim Clark, Global Editor-in-Chief, PC Gamer. "We think a show like this, which brings together people from every corner of PC gaming to celebrate the exciting things happening, is long overdue. We hope you'll join us, in person or on stream, to be part of it."
