If you thought companies might be done pulling out of PAX East, you were naive. PUBG Corp has shared that it is no longer attending PAX East. The company had planned to host a happy hour event for fans, which will no longer happen for now. "We will be rescheduling this plan for an upcoming event, once the coronavirus is under control and travel returns to normal," the company said, per GameSpot.

PUBG Corp joins a very long list, as companies like PlayStation have pulled out of both PAX East and GDC 2020, while others such as CD Projekt Red are no longer attending PAX East but still intend to try and make GDC.
