In an Q&A session for the media with Penny Arcade, held earlier in the morning; both Mike Krahulik and Jerry Holkins have indicated that PAX Australia will likely to stay in Melbourne beyond 2014.
“The plan is to stay here,” they said when asked if PAX Australia will move to another city – similar to EB Expo. Melbourne currently has PAX Australia for two years. In another question, the Penny Arcade people have said that some of the reasons why Melbourne got the job was that the state government’s involvement, the space to hold them now, and the ability to expand in the possible future (like next year).
So, sorry Sydney. You’re not poaching this from us.
