PAX Australia sets sights on Melbourne, July 2013

Nothing has been officially confirmed, but it looks like PAX Australia will be held in Melbourne, between July 19-21, 2013. The news comes after strong suggestions the expo would be in Brisbane or potentially Sydney, but leaked documents have let the Penny Arcade cat right out of the bag.

…hopefully he’s not running into the waters off of St Kilda Beach.

A sales document shared with Kotaku Australia contains all the relevant information, mentioning that the event would be organised locally by ReedPOP – the same management team who looks after both PAX events in the US.

More information – like an official statement – is expected in the not-so-distant future, but potentially this leak might bring things forward a little bit.

Melbourne is also home to the Freeplay Independent Games Festival, one of the host locations for GCAP (alternating with the Gold Coast), and hosts a vibrant games development scene – a natural fit for an event like PAX Australia.
