Because of the ongoing coronavirus restrictions and health concerns, a lot of events are canceled. This includes, but not limited to, this year’s E3 and PAX West events. Today, the organizers of the Paris Games Week 2020 announced that the event is now canceled.
The main reason for this is obviously the coronavirus restrictions in France. Even without the restrictions, the health risk is too big to take to hold the event.

“It is with great emotion that we have made the difficult decision to cancel Paris Games Week, initially scheduled from 23rd to 27th October and which would have marked our 10th anniversary.
The current context and the necessary anticipation of both the technical and logistical complexities of an event such as Paris Games Week have led us to cancel this edition.
This year should have been special, with a line-up full of new releases, and an anniversary edition which we were thrilled to celebrate with you.
We are going to work with all the industry players to enable us all to live our passion. We are already preparing next year’s edition and are looking forward to seeing you again.”
