Sony Just Canceled Its PAX East 2020 Attendance Because of the Coronavirus


Sony just provided an update on their PlayStation Blog about the company's planned PAX East 2020 participation and it's not a good one.

UPDATE: Today, Sony Interactive Entertainment made the decision to cancel its participation at PAX East in Boston this year due to increasing concerns related to COVID-19 (also known as “novel coronavirus”). We felt this was the safest option as the situation is changing daily. We are disappointed to cancel our participation in this event, but the health and safety of our global workforce is our highest concern.

Sony's PAX East 2020 participation was particularly important to fans since it would have been the first and only way for them to try The Last of Us Part II ahead of the game's late May release date.
