The Electronic Software Association has announced that E3 2020 has been cancelled due to the corona virus outbreak.
Between E3 and the Game Developers Conference it will be a rough year for game studios and publishers.
Both events are vital to the industry, and are also important for many independent developers as it gives them a place to showcase their games.
2D Con will be hosting an event in June to help gamers connect, give independent developers a place to showcase, and help fill the void caused by a year without E3.
The ESA is expecting to host an online E3 with showcases, game announcements and trailers. We will be making a “best of” to play during the event.
We will be raising funds for charity, the charity is undecided but will benefit the video game industry.
The event is in early stages of planning, be sure to be on the look out for updates!
2D does E3.
Note: Due to the spread of Covid-19 the event may be cancelled. We are monitoring the situation very closely.
