Hey all I’m back with an answer to a question I was asked a couple times. It’s my Thoughts on 2020 E3’s Cancellation!
It was cancelled?!?: In case you’ve been living under a rock and/or stuck without an Internet connection for the past month and a half you should know that this years E3 was cancelled due to the Coronavirus, COVID-19.
So thoughts?: I’m not surprised at all, hell I had a personal trip to visit family in California planned for about a week and a half ago that got cancelled because all three West Coast states have had Stay in Place Orders statewide since March 23rd. So many people are taking this very seriously and are trying to slow the spread of the virus. E3 being cancelled is not at all surprising, I mean even the 2020 Tokyo Olympics have been postponed till next year, although they’ll still be called the 2020 Olympics. So again I’m not surprised, I won’t be surprised if most of the United States is under a Stay in Place order by the time this column is posted.
What about all those announcements?: I’m almost positive we’ll be seeing a lot of Nintendo Direct style broadcasts from various publishers and developers this year. It’s still got the ability to hype up the holiday season lineup while being able to prevent the virus from spreading by hosting a huge event for a few thousand people to be near one another with very little distance.
That’s it for this week’s Video Game Tuesday.
