TwitchCon San Diego has been canceled due to COVID-19

Twitch has canceled TwitchCon San Diego, the streaming platform's biggest annual conference in the United States, citing "restrictions on large gatherings and ongoing concerns for the health and safety." Earlier in March, it also canceled TwitchCon Amsterdam, which was a two-day event scheduled for May 2.

The event had previously been slated for September 25 to September 27. While the event has been canceled, Twitch is aiming to host some form of TwitchCon later this year. As per the announcement, that might take place online. The firm stated:

“While we can’t gather in person, we’re exploring ways that we could join forces in an alternate dimension later this year.”

Out of caution for the coronavirus pandemic, several major gaming events have been canceled, notably including Fortnite World Cup 2020 and the Game Developers Conference. However, the organizers for the latter announced that it has been transformed into an all-digital event, starting on August 4.
