PAX has officially announced that PAX West will not take place this year. However, they also announced a new event, PAX Online, that will replace it. The event will take place from September 12th through the 20th, and will run for 24 hours a day. “PAX Online is the result of the convention-organizing supergroup made up of the people responsible for PAX West, PAX Australia, as well as our new friends at EGX to create our new PAX Online and deliver a steady 24/7 stream of content, events, discussions, and gameplay.” You can find more information on the event website.
