The countdown to E3 2020 has not been a good one for the ESA. Sony has already announced they are not going to be at E3 for the second year in a row. Then, earlier today, the ESA’s official site for E3 2020 leaked, and Geoff Keighley announced that he will not be participating in E3 for the first time in 25 years. With just 4 months until E3 2020 is supposed to begin, E3’s future is not that certain.
The uncertainty only grew when it was discovered that, when the site leaked, Nintendo was not seen on the exhibitor list. Well, the ESA has put out a press release saying that “several leading video game companies have already committed to participating in E3 2020″, including Nintendo. It was discovered later on that Nintendo’s Doug Bowser had confirmed the company’s participation in E3 2020 in a statement to The Hollywood Reporter a few weeks ago, saying that “we look forward to participating in E3 2020. It is one of many ideal venues for us this year to interact with people in a social and immersive environment. Every year, we base our approach to E3 on the content we have to share”.
