E3 2020 registration opens this weekend, and we’ve now got a better look at the dates and schedules for the expo.
Hot on the heels of Geoff Keighley’s surprise statement, announcing that he won’t host this year’s E3 Coliseum, the Entertainment Software Agency – or the ESA, for short – has revealed details of registration for E3 2020.
(E3 2020’s new website is also officially going live tomorrow, February 13, but it accidentally went live for a short time earlier today. Don’t worry, ESA – we’ll pretend nobody saw that.)
E3 2020 will, as ever, take place in the Los Angeles Convention Center. (Flanked by off-site press conferences and adjacent events from the likes of Xbox, EA, and of course, Devolver Digital.)
The expo will run from June 9-11 2020, with a media- and industry-only day on June 9. The show floor will again be open to the paying public – who have been able to attend since 2018 – on June 10 and 11.

On the future of E3 and its widely-reported changes in format, the ESA’s president and CEO, Stanley Pierre-Louis, said:
“We are working to make E3 2020 a more interactive and immersive experience with a show floor that will amplify our exhibitors, their innovations, and announcements. The E3 experience is an industry showcase like no other. It connects media, brands, innovators, and super-fans with one another.” – Stanley Pierre-Louis, president and CEO, the ESA
With the news that Sony will not be attending E3 2020 – in a new console year, no less – still ringing in everyone’s ears, the ESA is keen to stress who will be attending.
“Several leading video game companies have already committed to participating in E3 2020,” reads the press release, “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.”
