E3 2020 Participant List Leaks After Affirmations of Increased Cybersecurity

E3 2020 Participant List Leaks After Affirmations of Increased Cybersecurity

Not starting off on a good foot.

It may be only February, but E3 2020 is inching closer every day. This year is a big one, with a new generation of consoles on the horizon, and thanks to an early leak, we already know some of the companies who will be showcasing games at this year's show.

A ResetEra user found that the E3 2020 site, set to go live tomorrow, was still accessible today. Though the pages have since been put back behind a digital wall, the info still got out on some of the companies set to attend, including:

  • Activision Publishing
  • Amazon Game Studios
  • Bandai Namco Entertainment America
  • Bethesda
  • Capcom USA
  • Epic Games
  • Kalypso Media Group
  • RDS Industries
  • SEGA
  • Square Enix
  • Take-Two
  • Tencent
  • THQ Nordic
  • Ubisoft Entertainment SA
  • UnnamedVR by Paracosma
  • Warner Bros Interactive Entertainment
  • XSEED Games

Keep in mind this is a list that's being updated as it goes. Xbox boss Phil Spencer has already confirmed Microsoft will be attending despite its absence on this lineup. It's not worth much reading into the absence of companies like Nintendo for the time being.

Sony, meanwhile, already confirmed it would be skipping E3 again this year, ahead of its launch of the PlayStation 5. In a statement at the time, it said it did not feel the "vision of E3 2020" was the right venue.

What's a little more concerning is that this info got out so easily, especially after recent affirmations that the ESA would be beefing up its cybersecurity for this year's show. Last year's leak of many media members' personal information was a big deal, and this show has already had one leak. E3 2020 isn't instilling a lot of confidence right now.
