Google was originally going to have a physical presence at GDC 2020 with plenty of Google Stadia related events, including looking into bringing various games to Google’s game streaming platform and talking about Stadia’s launch.

It seems likely that these events will be instead transposed into Google’s ‘digital experience’, so those interested in Stadia lore won’t miss out.

There’s a chance that Google may return to GDC 2020 later this year, as the event is expected to be rescheduled for some time in the summer. We’ll be sure to keep you updated on all things GDC 2020 related.
