Drastic Measures Regarding E3 2020 Because of the Coronavirus – Will The Event still be Held?

Sadly, the COVID-19 (aka coronavirus) is not something to take lightly. The WHO (World Health Organization) officially declared the virus a pandemic. And there’s no wonder why since the disease is spread among 123 countries, which means more than half of the world. Also, the coronavirus infected 126,139 people worldwide and killed 4,627 of them.

With such terrifying stats, plenty of activities throughout the world are canceled, and so was the annual Electronic Entertainment Expo (aka E3) gaming event, which was to take place in Los Angeles between June 9-11, 2020. The Entertainment Software Association is the organizer, and it motivated its decision by saying:

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.

What happens with E3 2021?

The same organizer announced that we shouldn’t be worried about the next E3 event, the 2021 edition.  It will be well organized, and ideal for gamers since it will exhibit the latest innovations from the gaming industry. The Entertainment Software Association also says:

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.

One of the long-awaited games that we can expect to see at the upcoming E3 2021 event is GTA 6. The internet is flooded with news, predictions and rumors about the game, and it’s pretty likely that it will be launched at a date around the next E3 event. Rockstar waited an unusual amount of time since the release of GTA 5, longer than for any other game sequel from the Grand Theft Auto series.

The clock is ticking, and only time will tell what gaming wonders will we see during E3 2021.
