In wake of the coronavirus pandemic and the state of emergency declared by Los Angeles County in early March 2020, ESA stated then that they were assessing the situation but at the time were still planning on going ahead with the event. The ESA formally announced they had officially cancelled the physical event on March 11, 2020, stating the following:

"Following increased and overwhelming concerns about the COVID-19 virus, we felt this was the best way to proceed during such an unprecedented global situation. We are very disappointed that we are unable to hold this event for our fans and supporters. But we know it’s the right decision based on the information we have today."

In addition to providing full refunds for participants, the ESA was looking into options for virtual presentations for exhibitors to use during the planned week as an alternative event. It is the first time that an E3 event had been cancelled since its debut in 1995.

Will Microsoft, Sony, and Nintendo still reveal some new stuff later on, anyway? I need answers. (smh)

Companies like Microsoft, Nintendo and Devolver Digital are going to be hosting digital events or livestreams to share what they would've shown at E3 2020 had it moved forward. I believe it's not far-fetched to say E3 may also choose to do digital events moving forward.

The only thing I looked forward to at E3 is people embarrassing themselves like that Konami E3 press conference and Mr. Caffeine. This is actually a blessing in disguise because remember when this year's E3 was going be a "fan, media, and influencer festival". https://www....-influencers

The people in charge lost what was special about E3 in the first place and I would've skipped watching the event if it did go as planned.

E3 2019, so far is the worst E3 in the history.

Why couldn't they just postpone it instead of outright cancelling it? That's what Battlebots did in response to the COVID-19 Outbreak.

Because we don't know how long COVID-19 will last. It could last the entire year.

If only EVO 2020 had an article on this wiki explaining what happened, that would be great.

Late response, but you mean the fact that one of the EVO founders, Joey Cuellar (AKA Mr. Wizard), was fired because he turned out to be a pedophile? That would make a good article here, and so would EVO 2019, because a livestream for Dead or Alive 6 was shut down because it went agsinst the so-called "core values" of EVO.
