E3 2020 officially cancelled

E3 2020 officially cancelled

Out of an abundance of caution

After rumors bubbled up yesterday about a possible change in E3’s status, the ESA has now confirmed the news: E3 2020 is cancelled.

The ESA (Entertainment Software Association) announced the news on the E3 website. The event has been embattled over the last few years, and has faced a backlash over its shift to a new format that includes less industry and media and more celebrities and fans.

E3 has, for us, been a great place to network, to bump into opportunities, and to try a random game that ends up rocketing onto our radars. It’s not time to dance of the grave, lest we eventually fall through.

It’s not all bad news, though. The news includes a tidbit of info that lead us to believe that something might still happen in that time slot:

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.
