When the GDC organization announced that they will postpone the event to later this summer, this also meant that we had to evaluate our plans for the European Game Showcase. We learned that the majority of the developers who are part of the European Game Showcase at GDC have cancelled their trip. Only a handful of them will be in San Francisco to showcase their game.
Following official announcements, social media, and hearing back from our network has taught us that a considerable amount of press, publishers, platform holders and investors have also cancelled their travel plans, or are thinking of cancelling.
Considering the above, we feel that we can’t guarantee the quality or critical mass – for both developers and attendees – that we strive for. Therefore we had to make the difficult decision to cancel EGS 2020.
We are very sorry that we can’t make the European Game Showcase 2020 happen, but we hope you understand that this is completely out of our hands.
