Kojima cancels its attendance at the GDC 2020 for the coronavirus and leaves us without Death Stranding talk

Coronavirus – The Kojima Productions team was going to talk in detail about the origins of their latest video game.

The coronavirus crisis has caused that in recent weeks some of the big companies in the videogame sector cancel their attendance at various events around the world, and the last to announce this has been Kojima Productions , which has canceled its participation in the GDC 2020. The initial plan was for veteran Hideo Kojima to give a talk about Death Stranding at this event held in San Francisco.

“Kojima Productions has made the difficult decision to cancel our participation in the Game Developers Conference 2020 due to the growing concern for the coronavirus,” the Japanese study wrote in a statement released in social networks. “Unfortunately, the cancellation also includes the talks by Hideo Kojima and Eric Johnson,” the Japanese added.

As anticipated weeks ago, the talk of Death Stranding at the GDC 2020 was going to revolve around the development of this fantastic PS4 video game, which this year also opens on PC. We will therefore have to wait for future events to learn more details about the origins of one of the best releases of 2019 as we tell you in our analysis of Death Stranding .

This coronavirus crisis has been noticed in the video game industry in many different ways. Recently we echoed that Valve Index suffered the impact of the coronavirus in China , or the announcement that PlayStation will not go to Boston’s Pax East . A few days before, Sony itself confirmed that PlayStation would not go to the GDC 2020 for the same reasons.
