Tokyo Game Show 2020 Canceled Due To Coronavirus

In the upcoming events, we have to get used to the idea that it will be very difficult for massive video game-related events to take place in 2020 and as the weeks go by it will be confirmed that the editions planned for this year have been canceled or will go from a face-to-face format to online streaming. A few moments ago, it was the turn for the Tokyo Game Show 2020, which unfortunately ran with the same fate, as the even is now confirmed to be canceled.

Amid the wave of changes and cancellations of video game events due to the coronavirus pandemic, the organizers of the Tokyo Game Show 2020 did the same by announcing that the event will no longer take place, at least not as expected. The information was shared on social networks by personalities such as Wario64  and Takashi Mochizuki, a journalist from Bloomberg, who showed the statement in which the organizers of the event reported that it will no longer be carried out in person and instead there will be an online event.

As the document refers, the change in plans is due to the world situation due to COVID-19 and points out that in the case of Japan there is still uncertainty regarding the coming months, sufficient reasons for the organizers to decide to cancel the event.

Finally, the statement indicates that later this month information will be revealed with details about the online event that will supply the Tokyo Game Show 2020. What do you think about the cancelation of the event? Tell us in the comments below.
