- Poly Puzzle
- Chicken Wiggle Workshop
The Coronavirus claims another gaming event as victim, and this one is a pretty big fish: the ESA have announced that E3 2020 has been cancelled. It was initially slated for June 9th to June 11th. The ESA is currently looking at replacing the event by an online experience in collaboration with ESA members. In fact, Ubisoft have already announced that they are looking into an online event of their own.
Here’s the full message from the ESA (website currently experiencing technical issues):
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. Following increased and overwhelming concerns about the COVID-19 virus, we felt this was the best way to proceed during such an unprecedented global situation. We are very disappointed that we are unable to hold this event for our fans and supporters. But we know it’s the right decision based on the information we have today. Our team will be reaching out directly to exhibitors and attendees with information about providing full refunds. We are also exploring options with our members to coordinate an online experience to showcase industry announcements and news in June 2020. Updates will be shared on E3expo.com. We thank everyone who shared their views on reimagining E3 this year. 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.
Forever Entertainment have announced that Poly Puzzle will be released on March 12th in Europe and North America. The Upcoming Games page has been updated!
