Microsoft and Ubisoft are the first to announce that they are still planning to bring some sort of E3 experience to gamers. Sony doesn’t need to worry too much as they announced earlier this year that they won’t be participating at this years event regardless. Perhaps they will have their own live event, similar to Nintendo’s world renowned Directs.
The coronavirus has spread pretty fast and with the cancellations of some of the biggest events of the year is quite concerning. This year was probably going to be a pretty big year for publishers as we are in the year of the upcoming consoles — PS5 and Xbox Series X. However, the publishers seem to be looking to replace the event with something digital so let’s not panic to badly.
