Los Angeles Gaming Expo E3 Officially Canceled for 2020

E3 has officially been canceled for 2020. Organizers, the Entertainment Software Association, decided to pull the plug on the Electronic Entertainment Expo — known as E3 — due to the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19).

A statement on E3’s website reads:

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, scheduled for June 9 – 11 in Los Angeles.

E3 joins the long list of gatherings that are either canceled or postponed this year. Some festivals and events have rescheduled for a later date in 2020, but the majority aren’t planning to return until 2021.

We look forward to bringing you E3 2021 as a reimagined event that brings fans, media and the industry together in a showcase that celebrates the global video game industry.
