Geoff Keighley has announced that he is skipping E3 2020, and will not be producing E3 Coliseum this year. This will be the first time in 25 years that Keighley will not be participating in the famous video game trade show.

In a tweet from his personal Twitter account, Keighley announced that he will not be attending this year's Electronic Entertainment Expo. "I have made the difficult decision to decline to produce E3 Coliseum. For the first time in 25 years, I will not be participating in E3."

It appears the decision has not come easy for Keighley. "I've debated what to say about E3 2020," he said. "While I want to support the developers who will showcase their work, I also need to be open and honest with you, the fans, about precisely what to expect from me."

"I look forward to supporting the industry in other ways and at other events in the future," he concluded.

Keighley answered further questions people posed on Twitter. When asked what elements factored into his decision, he replied "A ton of factors, I just don't really feel comfortable participating given what I know about the show as of today."
