E3 2020 is on. The Entertainment Software Association (ESA) has followed tradition and put up a banner on the third and final day of E3 this year, inviting attendees back for next year's event. E3 2020 is set for June 9-11.
E3 has been a very different show this year. The absence of Sony led to a much different show floor than usual, and the event is still in flux as it welcomes in public attendees in addition to media and industry professionals. Some repeat attendees (including GameSpot staff) have noted that the show seemed less crowded this year. Those factors led to questions about what the future would hold, but now we know that the show will go on for at least one more year. Microsoft has already said it's planning a big showing for Halo Infinite next year.
The ESA also usually closes the show with a press release wrapping up the event and giving attendance numbers. If it follows suit this year, that may give a better idea of the perceived low attendance.
