E3 2020 is expected to be slightly different this year, as it transforms into a "fan, media, and influencer event".

Despite these changes, the show will go on. In a press release on its official website, the Entertainment Software Association has confirmed many of the major players – including Nintendo – have already committed to this year's event, which returns to the Los Angeles Convention Center this June.

Several leading video game companies have already committed to participating in E3 2020, including Xbox, Nintendo, Ubisoft, Bethesda Softworks, SEGA, Capcom, Square Enix, Take-Two Interactive Software, BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment America Inc., and Warner Bros. Games, among others.

This follows on from the news last month when Sony announced it would not be attending E3 2020, and Doug Bowser revealed Nintendo would be returning:

We look forward to participating in E3 2020. It is one of many ideal venues for us this year to interact with people in a social and immersive environment. Every year, we base our approach to E3 on the content we have to share.

In related news, industry personality and Game Awards creator Geoff Keighly has announced he will not be attending this year's expo:

I have made the difficult decision to decline to produce E3 Coliseum. For the first time in 25 years, I will not be participating in E3.
