In another blow to the long-running expo’s position as a foremost event for games media, Geoff Keighly has announced that he will decline to attend E3 2020. He revealed the news on Twitter, stating:

For the past 25 years, I have attended every Electronic Entertainment Expo. Covering, hosting, and sharing E3 has always been a highlight of my year, not to mention a defining part of my career. 

I’ve debated what to say about E3 2020. While I want to support the developers who will showcase their work, I also need to be open and honest with you, the fans, about precisely what to expect from me.

I have made the difficult decision to decline to produce E3 Coliseum. For the first time in 25 years, I will not be participating in E3.

I look forward to supporting the industry in other ways and at other events in the future.

With Sony out again for the second year in a row, and a somewhat prominent media personality declining to take part, it looks like E3’s long-rumored decline is really starting to show tangible effects. We’ll be updating you about more news regarding the conference as it becomes pertinent.
