Reedpop has announced that EGX Rezzed 2020 has been cancelled due to the coronavirus.
Originally scheduled for March, the event was rescheduled for July. It has been canned entirely, with the organiser promising full refunds to anyone who has bought a ticket.
“The effects, actual and projected, of Coronavirus are becoming evident across all aspects of our lives here in the UK and across the world, with many of our exhibitors and creators facing travel restrictions and quarantine measures,” said the organiser.
“After extensive discussions with all the relevant public health, local and national authorities, and with our Rezzed partners, we have taken the decision not to go ahead with this year’s event.
“We thank everyone who has prepared to deliver what promised to be a fantastic event over the past year, showcasing the best of indie gaming to the incredible Rezzed community. Our flagship event EGX is currently scheduled to run 17-20 September 2020 and all Rezzed tickets have automatically been upgraded to this September event.
“Rezzed ticket holders are entitled to a full refund should they prefer, and simply need email email@example.com with their order number and our Customer Services team will process their refund.”
Rezzed is expected to return in 2021.
As well as events such as Rezzed and EGX, Reedpop also publishes sites including VG247, RockPaperShotgun and Eurogamer.
