Today Gamer Network and ReedPOP announced that EGX: Rezzed 2020, scheduled to take place at Tobacco Dock, London, from 2 to 4 July will be cancelled following the escalation of COVID-19 in the UK, Europe and globally.
The press release read as follows:
The effects, actual and projected, of Coronavirus are becoming evident across all aspects of our lives here in the UK and across the world, with many of our exhibitors and creators facing travel restrictions and quarantine measures. After extensive discussions with all the relevant public health, local and national authorities, and with our Rezzed partners, we have taken the decision not to go ahead with this year’s event.
We thank everyone who has prepared to deliver what promised to be a fantastic event over the past year, showcasing the best of indie gaming to the incredible Rezzed community.
Our flagship event EGX is currently scheduled to run 17-20 September 2020 and all Rezzed tickets have automatically been upgraded to this September event. Rezzed ticket holders are entitled to a full refund should they prefer, and simply need email [email protected] with their order number and our Customer Services team will process their refund. “
Right now it is very difficult to see the September event taking place considering E3 and Gamescom have been cancelled for 2020, but personally hoping things change for the better and EGX 2020 can take place in September.
