Sony E3 2020 Hopes Dashed After Confirmation It Won’t Be Attending

Sony E3 2020 hopefuls have had their hopes dashed as the tech giant has confirmed that once again it will not be attending the E3 expo that takes place annually.

In the following statement issued to Gamesindustry.biz, Sony outlined their reasoning behind the decision to miss yet another year of the world’s largest gaming expo.

“After thorough evaluation SIE has decided not to participate in E3 2020,” said a Sony Interactive Entertainment spokesperson. “We have great respect for the ESA as an organization, but we do not feel the vision of E3 2020 is the right venue for what we are focused on this year.

“We will build upon our global events strategy in 2020 by participating in hundreds of consumer events across the globe. Our focus is on making sure fans feel part of the PlayStation family and have access to play their favorite content. We have a fantastic line up of titles coming to PlayStation 4, and with the upcoming launch of PlayStation 5, we are truly looking forward to a year of celebration with our fans.”

It really doesn’t come as much as a surprise given that Sony missed out on E3 last year, but it is a slight disappointment that they’re deciding to miss it out this year especially considering the PS5 is right around the corner.
