Bill Roper Headlines Games Convention Developer Conference
7:56 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Representatives of the Games Convention Developer Conference (GCDC) announced on Friday that Bill Roper would be delivering the keynote speech at the event. The GCDC is one of the leading developers conferences in Europe and boasts a diverse group of attendees.

"Familiarizing myself with the interests and challenges of the various cultural groups of developers not only enables me to gain an insight into the industry as a whole, it also permits us to exchange information about our concepts," comments Roper. "It is the exchange of topics, ideas and problem solutions that makes participation at this year's GCDC so special."
The subject of Roper's keynote will be "PC, consoles and mobile gaming: can these exist with one another?" He sees the future convergence of different platforms into one device.
"at some point there will be just one platform, combining console, PC, home entertainment and probably an espresso machine all in one unit". Until that point, however, he sees "market equality and enthusiastic players" for the console and PC platforms.
Roper, who currently manages Flagship Studios, is perhaps best known for his work overseeing such titles as Diablo, Warcraft, and Starcraft during his tenure at Blizzard. The GCDC conference will take place from August 16th to the 18th in Leipzig, Germany. Click the links below for more information.
