As we strive to continuously advance external development for the video game industry, we have made the difficult, yet right decision to adapt 2020’s XDS event into a fully virtual experience in this ever changing landscape. Click here to learn more about this transition.
Established in 2013, External Development Summit (XDS) is the only annual, international games industry event with a primary focus on external development for art, animation, audio, software engineering, QA and localization.
XDS gathers hundreds of international attendees from over 45 countries to advance the practice of external development for the games industry with three days of structured networking in Vancouver, Canada, one of the most beautiful cities in the world. XDS is considered to be a professionals-only event.
