Xbox head Phil Spencer took to Twitter overnight to confirm that Microsoft will hold “an Xbox digital event” designed to showcase “next generation of gaming.” More details will come in the “coming weeks,” Spencer added.
Meanwhile, Ubisoft tweeted a statement that declared, “the health and well-being of teams, players and partners is our top priority, 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.”
Speaking with Polygon, EA said it is “reviewing” changes for EA Play 2020, saying it will “follow the coronavirus developments around the world very closely.”
Back in January 2020, Sony confirmed PlayStation would be skipping E3 2020.
Publishers including WB Games, Square Enix, Bethesda and Nintendo have yet to detail what they’ll be doing in place of E3 2020.
