Since Comic Con International (CCI) announced the transition of WonderCon 2021 to a virtual event, fans have been wondering about the future of San Diego Comic Con (SDCC) 2021. CCI has now announced that the in-person SDCC we have all been anticipating will unfortunately not be held in 2021. Instead, CCI will host a 3-day virtual event, similar to last year’s online con, from July 23-25, 2021.
However, there is better news as well. SDCC in-person is not entirely gone for 2021. CCI plans to hold a smaller, in-person 3-day SDCC event in November, 2021. Details on this future event are forthcoming.
In the meantime, those who rolled over their badges from the canceled 2020 in-person event will now have them rolled over again to 2022, unless they choose to request a refund (which can be done here). The 2020 rolled-over badges will not be immediately valid at the smaller, in-person event now scheduled for November 2021, however, CCI is currently working on the possibility of allowing the option to use a 2020 badge at the November 2021 event. Stay tuned to the FoCC Blog for future details.
