2K Games bringing Borderlands, WWE to GaymerX2

New, comments

2K Games will attend the GaymerX2 conference next month, the publisher behind franchises like Bioshock, Borderlands and Grand Theft Auto announced on Twitter.

The publisher will bring Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel and a WWE game to the event, which is designed to celebrate diversity in games. More information will follow, according to the tweet.

GaymerX2 will take place July 11-13 at San Francisco's InterContinental Hotel. Earlier this year, organizers announced that, despite a successful Kickstarter campaign, this year's convention would be its last annual installment. They later clarified that it does not mean that GaymerX would disband.

"For games to be taken seriously as the pieces of art that they are, they can't live in a culture that is afraid to tackle and discuss issues like gender, sexuality, race and identity," GaymerX co-founder Matt Conn said last year. "The amount of support that we've gotten for GaymerX shows that the gaming community is coming around to the idea of having serious debates on how to improve the medium."
