E3 2020 Reportedly Cancelled

There's no official confirmation yet on the E3 Website, but multiple sources are reporting that the 2020 Electronic Entertainment Expo is being cancelled, presumably due to the COVID 19 coronavirus. Devolver Digital tweets that everyone should cancel their flights and hotel reservations and Ars Technica says they've heard the news from "Multiple sources familiar with the Entertainment Software Association (ESA)'s plans." This giant gaming trade gathering is scheduled for June 9-11 in Los Angeles, and last week the ESA announced the show would go on. But several companies have already pulled out, including creative directors iam8bit. Ars says the official announcement was planned for yesterday but postponed, and Bloomberg says it should come today at 12:30 pm EDT.

Well, it's for the best if so. Hopefully everyone takes the Nintendo Direct & Digital Revolver approach and releases online/prerec presentations for there stuff. I think NVidia is doing that since GDC is done. Think Microsoft was going to go all-in this E3, kinda feel bad for them.

If anything, at least we won't have to listen to the employees of these companies screaming, shouting and clapping like idiots from the front row every time something happens.
