Organizers of the Game Developers Conference announced a new installment of the international series of events: GDC Next, which will open its first annual outing in Los Angeles next year.

The event will replace the Austin-based GDC Online, which will have its final run October 9th through 11th, 2012. GDC Next will cover many of the topics which Online focused on, including mobile, social, independent and cloud-based gaming. It will be held in the Los Angeles Convention Center from November 5th through 7th, 2013, and will share the space with the App Developers Conference — a similar event which focuses on "key takeaways in app technology, creation, business and marketing outside of gaming."

"We're delighted to announce our next generation of events dedicated to both games and apps", said Simon Carless, vice president of GDC operator UBM Tech. "As the boundaries blur between games and other content across both hardware and software, we're delighted to be expanding our Fall GDC event onto the West Coast, and adding a whole new event showcasing learnings from the entire app ecosystem."

Once registration for GDC Next and the App Developers Conference are opened, interested parties will be able to sign up for either individually, or both for a reduced price.
