This is obviously a big disappointment for gamers and game developers alike. Devs especially, now miss out on showcasing new games at the shows to build up the hype before launch.
Valve is helping to alleviate some of that misery with the announcement of the Steam Game Festival: Spring Edition.

- Upcoming PC games: The best new games to look forward to
The previous Steam Game Festival happened December 2019 and gave gamers access to demos that could be played for two days to give them a taste of things to come.
The Spring Edition of the festival is set to not only go on for longer but also to feature more games as well. Geoff Keighley, Creator of The Games Awards and Gamescom has said that there will be over 40 games to try out during the festival period.
