FEBRUARY 28—CCP announced today that FanFest 2020 is cancelled. The move comes in response to the continuing spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus, and is being taken as a precautionary measure. In the announcement, and accompanying EVE Pulse video CCP Dopamine states:
“[W]e feel absolutely compelled to follow the most responsible course of action and prioritize the safety and well-being of our attendees, our staff and of course the general Icelandic public.
We realize that the situation a month from now could be very different, but the way events are developing both globally and in Iceland’s neighboring countries, an in-depth and serious review has made it clear that this is a necessary step to take.”
More information will be made available as CCP works out the details of what this will mean for existing tickets and other plans.
