GDC canceled over coronavirus outbreak.

Surprising no one, the organizers of the Game Developers Conference announced Friday afternoon that the event will be postponed to an undetermined later date.

"We fully intend to host a GDC event later in the summer," they wrote in an announcement post. The conference, which was scheduled to start on March 16 in San Francisco, had already been abandoned by most major tech and gaming companies, including Microsoft, Sony, Epic, Unity and Amazon.

GDC's cancellation follows similar announcements for F8, the Google News Initiative Global Summit, as well as an internal Google marketing conference, IDC's Directions and Shopify Unite. Next up: SXSW?
