The GDC and many other conferences have been cancelled and the fiscal 2020 year seems to be bad for those who depend on them.
Most of the major game companies (Microsoft, PlayStation, Facebook, EA, Kojima Productions, Amazon, Blizzard, Epic Games, CD Projekt RED and others) had already pulled out of the Game Developers Conference, which was scheduled to be held between March 16th and 20th in San Francisco, California.
The organizers will now try to reschedule GDC 2020 at some point in the Summer season, although there is no guarantee the coronavirus outbreak will be fully contained by then.
At present there has not been a lot of good news over coronavirus. News of more new cases all over the world have rattled a lot of conference show hosts.
