It looks like the Taipei Game Show 2020 is officially done for as of this writing. After being postponed from Q1 to Q2 2020, the organizers behind the games event have pulled the plug on this year’s convention and will cancel the physical side of the show altogether.
Despite the games event no longer running this year physically, there will be arrangments made so that people can see trailers and other announcements planned for said event online.
Sadly, no word has surfaced as to when we’ll be able to see these trailers and announcements, but given that the event was set for June 25th (after being postponed from February 6th), expect to see stuff around that time frame.
Moreover, the above information comes from the following message explaining the cancelation of the Taipei Game Show 2020, which can be found over on tgs.tca.org as seen below:
“Taipei Game Show 2020 was originally rescheduled on June 25 – 28. However, as the escalation of the novel coronavirus outbreak (COVID-19) continues, also comply with the latest rules by Taiwan CDC of suspending all the indoor events with 100 attendees as evaluative criteria. After consulting with most of the exhibitors regarding the health and safety, the organizing committee is officially calling off Taipei Game Show 2020 (B2C Zone, B2B Zone) and Asia Pacific Game Summit. Also, the team will be arranging full refunds and retention on all exhibitors paid fees and deposits.”
In other words, the Taipei Game Show 2020 will be joining E3 2020 in that it will act as a platform to show off digital announcements and trailers planned for the physical event, instead of doing business as usual.
With that said, more information on the organizing committee regarding “Online Business Matching Event” and “Taipei Game Show LIVE!” will be shared on tgs.tca.org.tw.
