Default Gen Con? So, SJ Games won't be there?

In a Facebook group I just read that SJ Games won't be at Gen Con this year or has pulled out of it for some reason.

Was there an official announcement about this and I just missed it?

Or was this a sudden decision?
Both wondering and very curious - for the first time in years I am "50/50" about going tp Gen Con this year.

I saw in the event catalog that there was a Wednesday event titled “What’s Going On with Steve Jackson Games”or something similar. I assumed it was gonna be a “here’s what we’ve been up to and here are out plans”, but without SJG having a presence, the tone sorta changes!

Yes, that was what the event was supposed to be. Should be canceled now.

We're fine - well, as fine as anyone can be during the Plague and No Freight Years - but we are not going to send teams to Origins or Gen Con this year. There is, literally, a risk of life (see: the Enforcer who died of COVID) and the current strain is very transmissible (see: two transmissions we know of at our tiny and completely masked FnordCon). So: gonna stay home, be online, make games. Sorry to miss everybody.

Mr Jackson,

Perfectly understandable and reasonable of you. Like I said, I am very "50/50" about going myself. I may dress up like a big tough Klingon - but I got to be safe or protective of my health and that of my family.

There are some at Indy that I always want to see in person each - but this time I am leaning towards being 'safe' and not taking the risk.

- Ed C,
