New day, new event cancellations because of coronavirus. A few days ago, the ESA, the E3 organizer, said that they were carefully monitoring the situation, and now they’ve decided to cancel the event.
“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,” reads the statement on the official website.
“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.”
They also say that they are looking at options to make an online event to present industry news and announcements in June.
