The E3 2020 Gaming Convention Has Officially Cancelled Over Public Health Concerns

E3 2020 has officially been dropped because of worries over the coronavirus, the Entertainment Software Association (ESA) has uncovered. The news returns on the of the previous evening’s explosion of reports that the signature gaming convention would be dropped for the current year, and on the back of many major events — gaming and non-gaming related — being canned the last few weeks over similar concerns. The show was initially intended to go down this June. All the more specifically, it was set to start on June 9 and through June 11 at the Los Angeles Convention Center.

“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,” the ESA said in a statement.

The ESA is investigating alternatives presently to create an online occasion in June 2020.

Since its origin in 1995, the occasion has never missed a year, making the moment in gaming history. All things considered, while the show has never been dropped, most gamers and gaming industry fans aren’t exceptionally surprised. Not just have shows of comparable scale been dropping like flies, yet there have been thunderings and bits of gossip about an E3 crossing out for half a month at this point.

Paving the way to this, various significant players had just reported they wouldn’t go to the show for a bunch of reasons. Back in January, Sony Interactive Entertainment formally declared it would not be going to the ebbing consumer meets public convention.

“After a thorough evaluation, SIE has decided not to participate in E3 2020,” said Sony at the time. “We have great respect for the ESA as an organization, but we do not feel the vision of E3 2020 is the right venue for what we are focused on this year.”

Since January, The Game Awards host Geoff Keighley — who hosted E3 Coliseum the past couple of years — announced he would also be skipping the show. Meanwhile, just this week the show lost one of its big creative director partners. All of this is to say, the writing has been on the wall for a while.
