Yes I'm back again ,twice in the same day , what's going on? Well it's Official amidst concerns over the Covid19 virus the Worlds biggest Gaming show has been cancelled. . E3 in Los Angelas is NOT happening this year. . Even though over week ago they where admament that the show would go ahead even with other shows in the area already canned.
E3 Is the biggest gaming show and even though this year it had already been dealt some blows with Sony Pulling out and key players also abandoning the show , there still where a lot of content that would have made it viable.
But being as Los Angelas is on alett surrounding the virus it looks like they can be sure all will be fine by the planned June date of the show.
Ubisoft and Microsoft have already assured fans that they will showcase their reveals via a digital event around the time the show was going to happen. Nintendo normally have a digital show anyway , so if all the big players pull together maybe they can all host digital events to satisfy the gaming community.
Maybe it was on the cards weeks ago as the new style E3 was heading was not liked by many industry insiders and some cited this as to why Sony Pulled out . But for gamers it is a sad loss of the hype to all the annoucements on the often cringeworthy live stages.
But as concerns rise over the Virus and how employees of the companies attending such events can be kept safe , it goes without saying thet precaution is the safest way.
Looks like this year events world wide will be disrupted one way or another. Though across the globe other events are taking place .
Watch this space and if any other events get canned where be sure to let you know in advance if we can.
