Major Firms Back Out Of GDC Due To Coronavirus

Major Firms Back Out Of GDC Due To Coronavirus

Less than 2 weeks ago, major companies started backing out of Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2020 due to coronavirus concerns. Eventually, the company putting on the event agreed to cancel it. Now, in a situation that seems a little deja vu, Sony and Oculus (along with parent company Facebook) are backing out of Game Developers Conference (GDC) 2020. The event is scheduled to take place March 16-20 in San Francisco. The organizers of the event are still planning to hold it but they are deploying additional health and safety measures to increase consumer confidence. Apparently its not enough to convince big companies though.
