Sony won't attend E3 this year

For the second year in a row, Sony won’t be participating in E3, a Sony Interactive Entertainment representative told GamesIndustry.biz.

The yearly gaming industry event where the world’s biggest publishers show off the next big thing in video games has changed a lot over the past few years. Sony doesn’t seem to agree with the direction it’s heading in, however.

“After thorough evaluation SIE has decided not to participate in E3 2020,” a Sony Interactive Entertainment spokesperson said. “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.”

Some of gaming’s biggest announcements ever have taken place at E3 in the past, but it seems like E3 has struggled with an identity crisis. Some publishers want to see E3 become more fan-centric, while others want it to remain an industry-exclusive event.
