The Entertainment Software Association (ESA), the organization behind E3, has released a list of major publishers that will be attending this year’s expo.
That list includes Microsoft, Nintendo, Ubisoft, Bethesda, Take-Two, Square Enix, Capcom, Bandai Namco, Warner Bros., and SEGA, according to the ESA.

The news comes shortly after E3 Coliseum producer-host Geoff Keighley announced he won’t be attending this year’s show. In response to a question on Twitter, Keighley elaborated on his decision, saying he doesn’t “really feel comfortable participating given what I know about the show as of today.”
Sony previously announced it’s skipping E3 for the second consecutive year, as the company doesn’t “feel the vision of E3 2020 is the right venue for what we are focused on this year” — a year that includes a console launch in PlayStation 5 this holiday season.
The ESA also announced public registration for E3 2020 will open on February 15. The company said E3 2020 will feature new experiences for attendees and livestream viewers, including an “all-new floor experience that will be streamed to bring exclusive conversations with leading industry innovators and creators.”
A report published in September stated the ESA is looking to make E3 2020 a “fan, media, and influencer festival.”
