In April of 2020, San Diego Comic-Con officials made the announcement that the Con set to take place that July would be made virtual. Panels would be livestreamed, attendance would be in front of computer or phone monitors, and you would have to bring your own pretzel snacks. This year, the officials made the decision a month earlier…to the surprise of no one, SDCC 2021 will also be a virtual affair.

Comic-Con 2015 is only weeks away and will be held from July 8-12 at the San Diego Convention Center. San Diego Comic-Con, or Comic-Con International, is widely known as the largest convention of its kind in the entire world. However, in recent years, that fact is becoming more of a detriment than a lofty point of high praise. With attendance over 130,000, and people all trapped in one area, the convention is essentially becoming too big for its britches. At this point, there is literally no more space left to accommodate all the attendees at Comic-Con. Hotel rooms in the area are almost non-existent. Customer service for hotel booking is terrible. The convention and the staff members of Comic-Con International are fully aware of the problems, but they have failed to address them. Comic-Con International suffers from over-crowding, poor planning, disorganized staff members and a lack of available hotel rooms. With a failure to address these problems, the convention has become a festering, gaping wound–a gangrenous wound that the staff members of Comic-Con International refuse to get treated as it poisons and rots a formerly incredible convention.
Microsoft has partnered with game studios and companies to create and give away 21 custom, limited edition Xbox One consoles for SDCC 2014, as stated by Nerdist today.
