It was something that we didn’t want to admit. We wanted to have hope, we say that from the start of September, it would be finally possible to resume a “normal” life. Alas, the reality catches up with us and is a little more complicated. In any case, for large gatherings and events. Because yes, this afternoon, the organisers of the Paris Games Week have officially canceled the event 2020 which was to mark the tenth anniversary of the latter. But the current context is a brake and it is impossible to organize properly the event. All of the teams give us an appointment for the next year to all we find.

We’ll see you in 2021 for the resumption of activities and events for the video games. Because, as a reminder, the E3, Gamescom and the Paris Games Week are all already cancelled. And hopes around the Tokyo Game Show are really low and this is probably a matter of time before it is cancelled.
To catch up with us, we can always follow the Summer Game Fest, a huge event that will last for the month of may until the month of August with many announcements and surprises around the video game. An event that aims to replace just the E3 and the Gamescom.
