Geoff Keighley is most notoriously known for The Game Awards and hosting the E3 Coliseum. However, Keighley stated he’ll be skipping E3 this year for the first time in 25 years.

This is the first E3 in 25 years that Geoff Keighley will skip. In an official statement Keighley stated:

“For the past 25 years, I have attended every Electronic Entertainment Expo. Covering, hosting, and sharing E3 has always been a highlight of my year, not to mention a defining part of my career.

I’ve debated what to say about E3 2020. While I want to support developers who will showcase their work, I also need to be open and honest with you, the fans, about precisely what to expect from me.

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.”

This is another major blow to E3. The event has been in the decline for years. With more large publishers like Sony and Nintendo choosing to not host large presentations. In addition, the ESA not securing private information for its attendees. Which lead to many discovering the location and private information for many people who attended E3 2019.
