GDC 2020 Has Been Officially Cancelled

In the last few weeks, several publishers have one by one pulled out of GDC 2020 due to the safety of all developers attending. First it was Sony and Facebook, before Microsoft, Unity and Epic Games all announced that they wouldn’t be attending the event. 

The event has officially been confirmed as cancelled by organisers this morning, with the full intention to host the event later in the year.

You can read the full statement below:

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.
