E3 2020 Cancelled

According to multiple sources online, it looks like we’re going to get news that E3 2020 will be cancelled, most likely due to the coronavirus. This comes after the show looked to be going through a rocky patch with various companies dropping out even before virus concerns.


UPDATE: E3 2020 has been officially cancelled, with this statement from the ESA: “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,” they’ll also be looking “to coordinate an online experience to showcase industry announcements and news in June 2020.”




E3 is meant to be taking place between 9-11 June but it’s looking like that’s no longer going to be the case. A tweet from Devolver Digital told everyone to cancel their flights and hotels, and since then, various people in the industry have also tweeted news from their sources. Jason Schreier from Kotaku, and Mike Futter lead the investigations.





Even before the coronavirus, Sony had again decided to skip E3, and iam8bit, a creative team behind the floor at E3, also dropped out. This isn’t the first major event the virus has impacted in the industry, things like AnimeJapan and GDC have also been cancelled.
