The organization behind the mega-convention San Diego Comic Con has unfortunately decided to cancel the 2020 event, previously scheduled for July 23-26 due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
The SDCC leadership released the following statement regarding cancellation-
“For the first time in its 50-year history San Diego Comic Convention (SDCC), the organizers behind the annual pop culture celebration, announced today with deep regret, that there will be no Comic-Con in 2020. The event will instead return to the San Diego Convention Center from July 22-25, 2021. Recognizing that countless attendees save and plan for its conventions each year, and how many exhibitors and stakeholders rely upon its events for a major portion of their livelihood, they had hoped to delay this decision in anticipation that COVID-19 concerns might lessen by summer. Continuous monitoring of health advisories and recent statements by the Governor of California have made it clear that it would not be safe to move forward with plans for this year.”
Generally, SDCC has been the site for major product reveals from Hasbro and other producers. While many have speculated that traditional SDCC presentations could switch to an online debut format, nothing has been confirmed at time of writing.
