Free webinar covers handling a video game studio comms crisis

Community managers need to know how to handle any crisis—whether it's from an announcement, leak, or other issue—and Game Developer Talks is here with a free webinar on September 28 about crisis comms for studios, publishers, and other game companies.

One day, you're working on your next video game. The next, it's DEFCON 1. An announcement is botched, early access disappoints, there's a footage leak. Community managers need to know how to handle anything, and Game Developer is here with a free webinar about crisis comms for studios, publishers, and other game companies.

Death by 1000 Keystrokes: Surviving a Crisis of Comms is the first official webinar in the new Game Developer Talks series of free online sessions. It takes place on Wednesday, September 28 from 10-11:30am PT (1-2:30pm ET).

In this webinar, community development manager and GDC Masterclass instructor Stephanie Bayer will cover everything you need to know about handling a comms crisis at your studio or company. She'll discuss topics like like surviving when things suddenly go wrong, as well as handling internal pressure while dealing with crises and trying to make a difference in your community. Anything can happen when you're working in video games, and it's best to make sure your community management team is prepared for the unexpected.
