Just like Thanos said in Avengers: Endgame “I am inevitable”, so is the cancellation of a massive event due to the overwhelming concerns of the Coronavirus. The Entertainment Electronics Expo famously known as E3 has now canceled its 2020 event which was set to take place this June, due to overwhelming concerns of the Coronavirus.
The ESA said the following in an officially released statement:
“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. 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. We are very disappointed that we are unable to hold this event for our fans and supporters. But we know it’s the right decision based on the information we have today.”
Prior to its official cancellation, E3 was shaping up to be one of the worst E3s to date. Sony, who typically has a huge presence at E3 pulled out of the expo back in January. Stating that “we do not feel the vision of E3 2020 is the right venue for what we are focused on this year.”.
Additionally, Warner Bros. Games who was set to have their first-ever E3 presentation is currently looking at other plans on how to present their planned announcements.
