E3 2020 | E3 2020 officially cancelled due to coronavirus fears
The Electronic Entertainment Expo, more commonly known as E3, has been canceled for 2020.
Citing concerns over the growing spread of coronavirus, the Entertainment Software Association (the group behind the expo) will make an official announcement later this morning at 9:30 AM PST. In a private memo to partners obtained by Bloomberg, the ESA has stated interest in putting on the event via an online method.
E3, which is widely regarded as the largest and most important event in the gaming industry, has occurred every summer since 1995. 2020 marks the first year the event has been canceled, adding to the growing list of major events and conferences that have been called off over fears of the coronavirus.
Other major events that have fallen victim to the coronavirus outbreak include Mobile World Congress (MWC) and Google’s annual I/O event.
