When and where? July 24-27 in San Diego, CA (duh)
What’s it like? SDCC is the granddaddy of all comic book conventions, and over the course of decades, it's grown to the point that it basically swallows the city of San Diego whole for five days straight. Though it began as a way for comic industry professionals to meet with fans, it has transformed into a massive media event for film, TV, and (you guessed it) gaming.
What might happen? In the last couple years, Sony, Microsoft, Nintendo, Capcom, Ubisoft, and Namco have all had large booths on the show floor. 2014 will likely be the same, so expect publishers of that size showcasing their recent E3 demos to a more informal audience--but we doubt Comic-Con will be limited to that. Though we don’t expect anything too big, publishers have been known to unveil comic book tie-ins like Deadpool, along with new trailers for SDCC. Lastly, unlike the front-loaded E3, game reveals happen all show long at SDCC, keeping the excitement high for the entire five-day stretch.
