Just a few weeks after the San Diego Comic-Con 2020 found out that the event was canceled for the first time in its 50-year history, the team behind the world-renowned organization seems to come up with something exciting. On Friday, the Comic-Con team shared a video announcement on Twitter and YouTube pages about a private home event, apparently virtual. And we come across San Diego Comic-Con digital event.
The shared video is short, sweet, and quite mysterious. Comic-Con also listed the benefits of attending the event at home, which would not normally be available to all participants, and shared a few text messages: “Coming soon… Free parking, comfy chairs, personalized snacks, no lines, pets welcome, badges for all, and a front-row seat to… Comic-Con at Home,” the announcement video declared.

San Diego Comic-Con digital event release date…
On April 17, it was announced that the Comic-Con 2020 was canceled due to concerns about the COVID-19 outbreak spread across the industry. For the first time in its 50-year history, the organizers behind the annual pop-culture celebration announced with deep regret that the cancellation decision and that there would be no Comic-Con in 2020. They also announced that the event will resume at the San Diego Convention Center from 22-25 July 2021. Considering that countless participants planned their contracts each year and that many participants trusted their activities for the majority of their livelihoods. They hoped not to make a cancellation decision in anticipation that COVID-19 concerns might diminish in the summer. But after a while this was inevitable. Continuous monitoring of health news, California Governor's recommendations, and final statements made it clear that the planned event for this year will not be safe.
