E3 Website Leaks Early, Revealing Presenter List

The ESA really struggles with security, it seems.

This year's E3 is off to a rocky start. The official E3 2020 website has been leaked ahead of its official launch, where you can find a plethora of information, such as confirmed attendees, schedule, and location.

The site was first spotted on ResetEra, who discovered its existence on the WebOps platform Pantheon.io. At the time of discovery, anyone could simply visit the URL and see the site. The E3 web staff has since password-protected the URL.

According to the leaked site, E3 2020 will be taking place from June 9 until June 11 at the LA Convention Center in Los Angeles, California. This is on par with what the event has done in the past. Nothing surprising there.

The ESA has made an official statement regarding the leak to VideoGameChronicle.

What we discovered is that a staging link for E3s new 2020 website was temporarily accessible while the site was being actively tested and reviewed for public launch. We understand that the staging link connected to the new public version of the website and confirmed that no access-controlled sections of the new site were accessible."


They then affirm that a variety of companies listed on the site were already confirmed externally to be in attendance this year.

Presenting Organizations:
  • Activision Publishing
  • Amazon Game Studios
  • Bandai Namco Entertainment America Inc.
  • Bethesda
  • Capcom USA
  • Epic Games
  • Kalypso Media Group
  • NCSOFT
  • RDS Industries
  • Sega
  • Square Enix
  • Take-Two
  • Tencent
  • THQ Nordic
  • Ubisoft Entertainment
  • UnnamedVR by Paracosma
  • Warner Bros Interactive Entertainment
  • XSEED Games
In a somewhat humorous and ironic happenstance, the site also includes a statement, claiming that the ESA (Entertainment Software Association) has increased their security measures regarding data collection. This is in reference to last year, when the personal details of over 2,000 media members, including their phone numbers and home addresses, were leaked

The official E3 website, www.e3expo.com, is expected to go live with its 2020 version on Thursday, February 13, 2020. So if anything is different, we'll know soon enough.
