“Our lineup is stronger than ever,” says the publisher.
In the wake of E3 2020’s cancellation due to concerns regarding the COVID-19 coronavirus outbreak, companies that were scheduled to have a presence at the event have been making announcements about alternative solutions. Microsoft and Devolver Digital have both confirmed they’ll be holding digital events, while Nintendo, Ubisoft, and the PC Gaming Show have also said they’re considering similar options.
Square Enix had also planned to attend the show, and they, too, recently made a statement. Taking to Twitter via their official account, the publisher expressed its support for the ESA’s decision to cancel the event, before saying that it was “exploring other options” to share the news and announcements it had planned for E3. In the statement, Square Enix also said that its 2020 lineup and the lineup for next-gen consoles is looking “stronger than ever.”
At this point, nearly all companies with an E3 presence have talked about alternative plans in wake of the show’s cancellation, with the only holdouts being Bethesda, and Warner Bros, who are also reportedly going to have a press conference, with big announcements in the pipeline.
