E3 2020 Will Be an Exciting, High-Energy Show, Says ESA Following Sony’s Confirmed Absence
Sony announced yesterday its decision not to exhibit at E3 2020 for the second year in a row, even though the company is launching the highly anticipated PlayStation 5 console later this year. Sony will instead focus on 'hundreds' of smaller fan events, though it is widely believed that there will be a PlayStation Meeting event dedicated to the unveiling of the console, as was the case for both PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 4 Pro.
Shortly after the news hit, Microsoft's Head of Gaming Phil Spencer confirmed that Xbox will indeed participate at E3 2020 (even though it'll likely do it from its own nearby venue, the Xbox Plaza, as in previous years). Now, the organizers of the Electronic Entertainment Expo, the Entertainment Software Association (ESA), also released a statement of their own.
