Sony already announced this week that the PlayStation brand would not be attending PAX East next week due to the looming threat of the coronavirus. It seems the company has also jumped ship from this year’s GDC (Games Developer Conference). Sony Interactive Entertainment was meant to attend the show this year but revealed to GamesIndustry.biz that they will no longer be participating.
Along with PlayStation, Facebook also announced they would not be attending GDC either this year but still plan on making announcements during the week. The organizers of the Game Developers Conference published a statement yesterday revealing they are planning for the event and the attendees’ safety in mind. They will incorporate additional health and security measures.
This marks the second event that Sony has pulled out of. The company was planning on showcasing new footage of The Last of Us Part II during PAX East and GDC. We will have to wait for them to release this footage outside of the expos now.
