GDC 2020 shrank a bit yesterday when Microsoft, Epic Games and Unity announced that they won’t attend the conference because of the coronavirus outbreak. Microsoft, Epic Games and Unity are merely the latest companies to pull out of GDC 2020. The conference also lost Sony, Oculus, Kojima Productions and Electronic Arts; it wouldn’t be surprising if other companies followed suit. Of course, the question of whether GDC will actually go on as scheduled is also on many minds.
But for now GDC 2020 is scheduled to continue, despite missing some of the biggest names in the industry. The conference is scheduled from March 16-20 in San Francisco.
