It’s been expected ever since Los Angeles declared a state of emergency, but it looks as if E3 2020 is about to be cancelled due to Coronavirus.
Devolver Digital Tweeted ‘Cancel your E3 flights and hotels, y’all’ before Kotaku Editor Jason Schreier chimed in saying that he’s been hearing whispers tonight from several pubs and developers that E3 is cancelled.
Been hearing secondhand whispers tonight from several devs/pubs that E3 is cancelled, although I've also heard from a couple of people in positions to know that the ESA hasn't officially made a decision yet and is still consulting with pubs. Either way, it's only a matter of time https://t.co/Od0MDj3ZXv
It’s unclear what this would mean for E3. It’s unlikely that it would be rescheduled, but it doesn’t necessarily mean that we wouldn’t see press conferences streamed during the regular E3 week. This comes off the back of Coachella being announced earlier today and being rescheduled for October.
