Games Developer Conferrence (GDC) va avea loc pe 16-20 martie in San Francisco, iar de teama coronavirus, Playstation si Oculus au anuntat ca nu vor fi prezenti.
GDC este alt eveniment major care aparent va avea de suferit datorita coronavirusului, dupa ce Mobile World Conference care trebuia sa aiba loc luna aceasta in Barcelona a fost anulat. De asemenea, Sony a anuntat ca nu vor fi prezenti nici la evenimentul PAX East 2020 tot din acelasi motiv.
UPDATE: Today, Sony Interactive Entertainment made the decision to cancel its participation at PAX East in Boston this year due to increasing concerns related to COVID-19 (also known as “novel coronavirus”). We felt this was the safest option as the situation is changing daily. We are disappointed to cancel our participation in this event, but the health and safety of our global workforce is our highest concern.

Divizia de gaming a Facebook au anuntat la randul lor lipsa de la GDC:
Out of concern for the health and safety of our employees, our dev partners, and the GDC community, Facebook will not be attending this year’s Game Developer Conference due to the evolving public health risks related to COVID-19. We still plan to share the exciting announcements we had planned for the show through videos, online Q&As, and more, and will plan to host GDC partner meetings remotely in the coming weeks.
Cu absente la doua mari evenimente din lumea gaming-ului, va ramane de vazut cand Sony va decide prezentarea lui Playstation 5 si a noilor titluri pe care le are in dezvoltare, precum si secvente noi de gameplay din mult asteptatul Last of Us II.
