It was recently announced that GDC 2020, which was scheduled to take place in San Francisco this month, has been cancelled after many participants withdrew citing fears over the health of their employees.
“Everyone is watching the situation very closely,” the ESA said in a statement provided to Vice. “We will continue to be vigilant, as our first priority is the health, wellness and safety of all of our exhibitors and attendees.
“Given what we know at this time, we are moving ahead full speed with E3 2020 planning. Exhibit and registration sales are on track for an exciting show in June.”
The ESA has come under significant pressure to reinvent E3 in recent years, and in late January it vowed “to shake things up” for 2020’s event, which is being created in collaboration with production company Iam8bit.
