Amid growing concerns of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic and a recent surge in cases in Texas, entertainment conglomerate Rooster Teeth has canceled the in-person RTX Austin 2020 event that was scheduled to take place in September.
“Despite all our wishes and best efforts to bring us together in person this year, due to citywide restrictions on large scale events, RTX Austin 2020 has officially been canceled,” Rooster Teeth said. “We wish nothing more than to be able to see all of you in person as soon as it’s safe to do so.”
Though RTX Austin 2020 has been canceled, Rooster said it will host a virtual event instead. Details about this RTX replacement have yet to be revealed, but it’s planned to take place later this year.
Badge holders can request to refund or postpone their RTX Austin 2020 ticket. Should you choose to postpone, you have until August 9 to register your ticket for RTX Austin 2021. Otherwise, you will be issued a full refund, with them being processed in “as little as 30 days after August 9.” You can visit the RTX 2020 site to postpone your badge.
RTX Austin 2020 was originally intended to take place from July 3-5 but was pushed to early September due to coronavirus concerns. Despite the disruptions it’s caused, a number of video game companies have been hosting livestreams to deliver new announcements in the wake of E3’s cancellation. For example, in a similar fashion as Rooster Teeth, Blizzard has canceled this year’s BlizzCon, with plans to hold a virtual event next year. And other digital showcases, like Tennocon and Ubisoft Forward, will go live in the coming months.
