Sony Won’t Attend E3 2020

Sony E3 2020

Sony has confirmed that the company will not be attending E3 2020. The company told that it will use other means to showcase its upcoming PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 games throughout the year.

Here is the full explanation a Sony representative provided to

After thorough evaluation SIE has decided not to participate in E3 2020. 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.

Last year, Sony skipped E3 2019. Instead, the company appeared at other events and began holding State of Play video presentations. It has also not held a PlayStation Experience since 2017. When it appeared at E3 2018, the company had a media briefing and a booth on the show floor.

E3 2020 will be held June 9-11, 2020 in Los Angeles, California.
