This year's "South by Southwest" event has now been canceled due to concerns about the corona virus. The SXSW is not taking place for the first time in 34 years.
The event South by Southwest, also called SXSW known, had to be canceled – for the first time in 34 years. Once again, concerns about the corona virus are the reason. The organizers are now considering whether the event could possibly take place at a later date. However, a virtual show is currently being prepared. This should start as soon as possible.
A traditional event was canceled
SXSW is an event related to music, film and interactive media, which is not just a trade fair, but also includes a festival and conferences. This year, the former head of Nintendo of America, Reggie Fils-Aime, wanted to hold a keynote and the annual Sonic panel would have offered some surprises, according to Sega. Sega would like to organize something of its own in April to inform Sonic fans about all the new products.
The COVID-19 virus currently causes the cancellation of several events, including in the gaming area. The GDC recently had to be canceled. It is still uncertain whether the E3 can take place this year, since a state of emergency has been declared in California due to the corona virus. The organizers are still holding on to the popular game fair.
