It's official folks - E3 2020 is officially cancelled. After only last week announcing that the event would be moving full speed ahead, rumours persisted over the last 24 hours or so that the event would indeed be cancelled. Now E3 organisers the Entertainment Software Association (ESA) have announced that it will not be going ahead due to concerns surrounding coronavirus.
"After careful consultation with our member companies regarding the health and safety of everyone in our industry – our fans, our employees, our exhibitors, and our longtime E3 partners – we have made the difficult decision to cancel E3 2020, scheduled for June 9-11 in Los Angeles."
"Following increased and overwhelming concerns about the COVID-19 virus, we felt this was the best way to proceed during such an unprecedented global situation. We are very disappointed that we are unable to hold this event for our fans and supporters. But we know it’s the right decision based on the information we have today. Our team will be reaching out directly to exhibitors and attendees with information about providing full refunds."
Something E3 shaped may still happen in June, however, with the ESA stating, "We are also exploring options with our members to coordinate an online experience to showcase industry announcements and news in June 2020. Updates will be shared on E3Expo.com."
"We thank everyone who shared their views on reimagining E3 this year. We look forward to bringing you E3 2021 as a reimagined event that brings fans, media, and the industry together in a showcase that celebrates the global video game industry."
