A while a go we reported that E3 would be toned down to a conference with a limited number of attendees. Now the Game Developers Conference is reporting that they will fill the void left by E3.

“With E3 moving to a 5,000 person media-centric event, GDC has been elevated to the world’s largest trade event dedicated to the game industry, with attendees numbering more than 12,500 including more than 1,000 members of the working press.” The GDC has already secured additional space for the event.

Interesting for indie developers and alternative games is that the GDC will add an independent games conference; the Independent Games Festival will take place as part of the GDC.
