Kojima Productions no longer attending GDC
Kojima Productions has joined Sony and Facebook by announcing that it is no longer attending the Game Developers Conference due to concerns related to the coronavirus.
In a message on its website, the developer confirmed that it is canceling its participation in the show “due to increasing concerns related to novel coronavirus.” According to the developer, this includes presentations by AI programmer Eric Johnson and Hideo Kojima himself.
“Kojima Productions has made the difficult decision to cancel our participation at the 2020 Game Developers Conference due to increasing concerns related to novel coronavirus,” the message reads. “Although much-anticipated, unfortunately this cancellation also includes Hideo Kojima’s session on the 19th and Eric Johnson’s session on the 16th.”
Last week, Sony announced that it will not be attending PAX East and GDC due to coronavirus concerns.
The Game Developers Conference is scheduled to take place in San Francisco from March 16th-20th.
