Every year we can look forward to several games conventions for the latest news and biggest reveals. Staying up at night to watch a 2 hour conference for one specific publisher just to get a little snippet of the next big game to come out. The biggest of them all was the Electronic Entertainment Expo, also known as E3, and unfortunately this year the convention was cancelled due to the global COVID-19 pandemic.
In it’s place have sprung numerous digital conventions all designed to capitalize on that gap in the industry, one that was no longer dominated by the biggest convention of the year. Now publishers themselves can release news on their own terms and at their own pace, rather than rushing to get something out the door in time for E3 2020. It can be quite hard to track everything that’s going on this Summer, so here’s a handy compilation of every digital video game showcase taking place this year instead of E3 2020.
Several showcases have been postponed/delayed due to current events. So this article will be continually updated to show the latest information if schedules do change.
