Game Developers Conference 2020 has been postponed

The postponement of the Game Developers Conference 2020 was announced a few hours ago by the organizers. COVID-19 (new coronavirus) led many large companies to cancel their participation in the event and eventually postponed the conference itself.

After consulting with our gaming industry partners and the global community, we made the difficult decision to postpone the Game Developers Conference in March

says the official announcement by the organizing authority, which however leaves the door open for the coming summer. 

We plan to host the GDC later this summer. We look forward to working with our partners to check out the details and will share more details about our plans in the coming weeks.

And while refunds for tickets will begin in a few weeks, those planning to travel will have to see what they will do with the money they paid for airline tickets and accommodation.

The cancellations from the companies began last week when Sony and Facebook opened the "dance". Electronic Arts and Kojima Productions followed with Microsoft, Epic Games, Iron Galaxy Studios, Amazon and Unity announcing they would not travel to San Francisco.
