GDC 2020 postponed due to coronavirus after several cancellations

GDC 2020 has been postponed due to the coronavirus after several cancellations.

After close consultation with our partners in the game development industry and community around the world, we’ve made the difficult decision to postpone the Game Developers Conference this March. We fully intend to host a GDC event later in the summer. We will be working with our partners to finalise the details and will share more information about our plans in the coming weeks.
