Now that E3 2020 has officially been canceled due to the coronavirus outbreak, many developers are looking for alternatives ways to present their titles. However, it seems like some may have postponed their plans because they don't be able to hold their own press conferences.
According to a report by Kotaku, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment (WB Games) was planning to host its own briefing, but it may do a digital event or something else entirely to reveal a number of highly-anticipated projects. Kotaku's News Editor, Jason Schreier, wrote the following.
Hopefully, Warner Bros. will reveal all of these projects close to E3. Having a digital event makes the most sense and would be considerably cheaper than putting on a massive show. However, it may not garner as many viewers because it seems like there will be a lot of digital shows in June.
We'll keep you posted as soon as we know more. Warner Bros., if you're reading this, just reveal the next Batman game already!

I need a new Batman game in my life.
Just do a digital reveal, it's going to be a Hell of a lot cheaper and still incite the exact same buzz either way.
And just like this, E3 leaks become this year's E3.
