Facebook dev co-founder to continue the discussion of social networks

Sebastien de Halleux of Facebook group Playfish will deliver a keynote address at the upcoming GDC Austin show.

The Playfish co-founder and COO will return to a discussion on the momentous potential of social gaming - if that still needs exploring - with his keynote occurring on the final day of the four-day event.

Over the course of the whole conference, de Halleux’s keynote will follow speaker sessions from Blizzard Entertainment and Sony Online Entertainment’s John Smedley.

The conference is also set to stage a brand new iPhone Games Summit.

A comprehensive list of all GDCA’s speakers can be found here.

GDC Austin takes place at the Austin Convention Center in Texas, opening its doors from September 15-18.
