Ubisoft and Devolver Digital have shared updates on their E3 2020 plans now that the event has been canceled due to coronavirus concerns.
“The health and well-being of teams, players, and partners is our top priority,” Ubisoft wrote on Twitter. “So while we’re disappointed, we fully support the ESA’s decision to cancel E3 2020. E3 is and will continue to be a moment where we come together as a community and share our love of games. We’re exploring other options for a digital experience that will allow us to share all the exciting news we have planned. Stay tuned for more!”
Devolver sent out a similar message on Twitter, noting that there is “Lots to juggle” but that the indie publisher intends on “having a live stream Devolver Direct/press conference and possibly more.”
Microsoft has also already stated that it will host a digital event in place of its E3 2020 press conference. Nintendo will presumably still stream its usual E3 Nintendo Direct presentation. Sony will also likely host its own live stream event designed to showcase the PS5 at some point (possibly around the time that E3 2020 was supposed to take place). For their part, E3 2020’s organizers have stated that they’re also trying to put together some kind of online presentation, but we’re still waiting to learn more about their plans.
