This is the kind of shit that leads to the downgrade debacles we've had.Not at all. Beneath the showiness and spectacle, E3's always been a vehicle for the publishers and investors to monitor the state of the industry and make plans accordingly. If anything, developers will benefit from not having to have X demo/presentation/trailer/etc. ready by Y date - something they've already been seriously struggling with in recent years. E3 2019 was almost completely a showcase for games coming out in 2020 or later; very few actual cool surprises for the consumer.
