Game Developers Conference Postponed Due to Coronavirus

An Important GDC 2020 Update announces that the 2020 Game Developers Conference is being postponed due to concerns about the COVID-19 coronavirus. Word is they plan to reschedule the trade show to an unspecified time this summer:
After close consultation with our partners in the game development industry and community around the world, we’ve made the difficult decision to postpone the Game Developers Conference this March.

Having spent the past year preparing for the show with our advisory boards, speakers, exhibitors, and event partners, we're genuinely upset and disappointed not to be able to host you at this time.

We want to thank all our customers and partners for their support, open discussions and encouragement. As everyone has been reminding us, great things happen when the community comes together and connects at GDC. For this reason, we fully intend to host a GDC event later in the summer. We will be working with our partners to finalize the details and will share more information about our plans in the coming weeks.

I think the level of fear that this has generated is not proportional to the actual threat. It just seems everyone is grossly overreacting.

I dunno about that. It is spreading to all corners of a round planet. Do you want to be in a large crowd with reports in your area? If not that cancels a lot of events, that effects all of travel. Be in a bad area, it is effecting work, that being China and they make too many of things, that starts hitting business in a lot of different ways. It is really effecting business and that isn't fear... this time. It is real.
