The Creative Director of E3 2020, Iam8bit, has resigned.

The news comes via GamesIndustry.biz who shared Iam8bit’s tweet on the matter,

Iam8bit was first announced to be a collaborator for E3 2020 in January in an official statement. The ESA provided comments that Iam8bit was signed to, “reinvigorate the show and, frankly, to shake things up.”

The statement had mentioned their plans for E3 2020,

“We will be showcasing E3 to the world through new streaming and digital programming while creating gatherings on the show floor that let people do what they love the most… play and celebrate games.

We’ll have surprise guests, amazing stage experiences, access to insiders and experiential zones that delight the senses. It will be incredibly inclusive, celebrating all aspects of our industry.”

The news of Iam8bit’s withdrawal follows news of Geoff Keighley’s own withdrawal after 25 years at E3.
