With E3 2020 official canceled, companies that were supposed to attend the event are now exploring other options to reveal their projects to fans. Yesterday, we mentioned that Warner Bros. was about to hold its own conference at E3 and we also learned that the publisher was expected to be revealing new Batman and Harry Potter games. Now, Square Enix has issued an official statement, saying that the company is "exploring other options to share our games."

While mentioning the plans, Square Enix also took the opportunity to highlight its 2020 lineup and the upcoming Final Fantasy 7 Remake. The full statement is mentioned below:

"As the world has echoed and united, nothing is more important than protecting the health and well-being of our employees and their families, our partners, and unquestionably, our fans. We support the ESA's decision to cancel E3 2020 and send our strongest heartfelt appreciation to everyone that works tirelessly to bring unforgettable games and experiences to E3. We understand this is disappointing not only to our respective developers and publishers, but also to thousands of fans who venture from afar to celebrate games at E3. We're right there with you.

Our 2020 lineup, and the next-generation that lies beyond, is stronger than ever for Square-Enix. Where E3 has always been an incredible moment in time to showcase our upcoming games, we're exploring other options to share our games with you. More to come, stay tuned.

Thank you."

The ESA had to cancel E3 2020 due to the coronavirus outbreak, which continues to spread across the globe at an alarming rate. Since E3 has been canceled, it has left a void and fans are curious as to how developers and publishers will reveal their projects that were planned to be a part of the big event.

Now, the only viable option seems to be broadcasting the game announcements digitally. Expect to see a number of companies go the "Nintendo Direct" route with presentations and videos.
