The next E3 is still months away but further publishers have started to confirm their attendance for E3 2020.
Nintendo Xbox Bethesda and Ubisoft Are Few of the First Publishers Confirmed for E3 2020
While we have heard who won’t be attending, which now includes Sony Playstation and E3 Colseum producer Geoff Keighley, we have a few more confirmations of who will be at this year’s E3. Keighley has explained in an article on The Washington Post that due to what he knows about the show, he has opted out:
Based on what’s been communicated to me about the show, I just don’t feel comfortable participating. It’s no secret that E3 needs to evolve and I have lots of ideas around that, but have decided to take a wait-and-see approach. I’m looking forward to learning more about the ESA’s vision for the show beyond what was in the blog post last week.
A press release was sent out by the Entertainment Software Association, which shared a list of publishers who will be at E3 2020. These include:
- Square Enix
- Take-Two Interactive
- Bandai Namco Entertainment
- Warner Bros. Games
This isn’t the full list of the attendees, but it does give a taste of what to expect this year. What’s noticeably missing from the list is Activision-Blizzard and Electronic Arts. EA usually holds their own event EA Play but as for Activision we will have to see. Last year they opted to forgo a booth on the show floor and instead hold meetings off the floor.
ESA hasn’t been quiet about a new approach this year, sharing back in September 2019 that they were rebranding E3 as a “fan, media, and influencer festival”.
We are still some time away from E3 2020 but these are just some of the confirmations at this time.
E3 2020 will take place 9th to 11th June at the LA Convention Center.
