The 2020 GDC (Game Developers Conference) has been cancelled due to fears of the Coronavirus outbreak.
The announcement was made earlier today by event organisers, who decided to postpone the event until the summer.

The virus, which originated in the Chinese of city of Wuhan, has infected over 80,000 people and killed nearly 3,000.
