Thats right fans! San Diego Comic-Con 2020 has now been officially cancelled due to the ongoing coronavirus situation. This is the first time in the 50 year history of Comic-Con that the event has been officially cancelled. The event will return to the Convention Centre in San Diego from July 22-25, 2021.
Comic-Con released the following statement Friday explaining their decision to cancel the event: “Recognizing that countless attendees save and plan for its conventions each year, and how many exhibitors and stakeholders rely upon its events for a major portion of their livelihood, they had hoped to delay this decision in anticipation that COVID-19 concerns might lessen by summer. Continuous monitoring of health advisories and recent statements by the Governor of California have made it clear that it would not be safe to move forward with plans for this year.”
San Diego Comic Con becomes the latest in a long line of industry events cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic with E3 & Gamescon events being scrapped.
This is indeed sad news as Comic-Con is always the launching ground for the upcoming movies to drop some killer trailers, and people to get their hands on some awesome collectables.
