The World's Only Conference Dedicated toGame Quality
The Leading Event for:
QA | Player Support | Producers | Studio & Publisher Heads
The North American Game Quality Forum returns this year, as the industry-only two-day games conference dedicated to quality. Building upon previous editions in Europe, North America and Asia, we are excited and proud to be formerly incorporating Player Support as the second dedicated track.
As gamers increasingly expect more from their favorite releases, the pressure to deliver a smooth and seamless experience to the player has brought with it a number of implications. The Live Service release model now demands that titles are not only shipped in peak working order, but are also supported with subsequent updates, patches and content drops. Unexpected delays or problems with these updates carry with them severe effects that can damage a titles reputation, and prompt a player base to move on. In order for a developer and publisher to deliver a flawless experience, every team, from development to release, must work both internally and externally to ensure that the quality is of a consistently high standard.
The Game Quality Forum continues to be the world’s only conference dedicated to the betterment of release quality, as it holds an essential place in the calendars of many world leading game developers and publishers. This December, GQF will continue to bring together QA, Player Support, Producers and Studio Leadership to discuss how best to approach quality as more than a function, but a culture, and we hope you will join us at this unique event.

"I firmly believe that this forum will change the face of gaming QA. I think anyone who truly cares about the industry should seek to be a part of positive change within it, and the best way to do that right now on a scale wider than one’s current workplace is to be at this forum and meet like-minded individuals. QA came out of the basement a while ago – let’s get up on the stage!"Dave Mitchell, QA Director, CPP Games
