Sony has announced that it will skip E3 for a second year in a row.
In a statement to Gameindustry.biz, Sony said that it doesn’t feel that the vision for the event is right for what it has planned for this year, and it will instead opt to show upcoming games for PS4 and PS5 at hundreds of consumer events.
“After thorough evaluation SIE has decided not to participate in E3 2020,” said a Sony Interactive Entertainment spokesperson. “We have great respect for the ESA as an organization, but we do not feel the vision of E3 2020 is the right venue for what we are focused on this year.
“We will build upon our global events strategy in 2020 by participating in hundreds of consumer events across the globe. Our focus is on making sure fans feel part of the PlayStation family and have access to play their favorite content. We have a fantastic line up of titles coming to PlayStation 4, and with the upcoming launch of PlayStation 5, we are truly looking forward to a year of celebration with our fans.”
