E3 was cancelled a while back due to the circumstances surrounding Covid-19. Due to this, a lot of things have been up in flux. We know that Xbox and PlayStation will still be talking about next generation hardware and games this year. But without E3, the question remained where would these companies be showcasing what they have?
It looks like we might not be waiting much longer. According to industry insider and Senior Analyst at Niko Partners Daniel Ahmad, the event will be coming soon.
With E3 cancelled, a lot of the planned reveals / announcements have been moved out of that single week.— Daniel Ahmad (@ZhugeEX) April 19, 2020
Some are now much earlier, others much later. Some still during E3 week ofc.
The first proper next gen console/games showcase is much earlier too.
There have been rumors for a while that Xbox would be showcasing what they have in an event in early May. It’s very possible that what Daniel is talking about is the long rumored Xbox event. It’s also possible that Sony catches everyone off guard and has their own event soon as well.
We will have to wait and see when exactly these events will take place, but we won’t have to wait much longer. While the world is definitely still in flux, it is an exciting time for games and it helps keep everyone distracted during this tough time.
