Story Text: Video game convention E3 is the latest entertainment event to announce they are canceling their 2020 edition because of the coronavirus.
On their website and their Twitter handle, organizers made the statement on Wednesday (March 11), "After careful consultation with our member companies regarding the health and safety of everyone in the industry - our fans, our employees, our exhibitors, and our longtime E3 partners - we have made the difficult decision to cancel E3 2020, scheduled for June 9-11 in Los Angeles."
The E3 convention annually shows the gaming world what to expect in the coming year and exhibitors used the event to highlight products to gamers and gaming journalists.
The statement said they would be working to create an "online experience" of the convention in June.
