According to Baker, aka Shpeshal Nick, the former holder was originally going to host the showcase this month, but decided to move it to September.
One of his source contacted Baker with the following message in response to the showcase no longer taking place in August:
Doesn’t sound like it. Had 3 different people tell me 8th September within about 20 minutes of each other. I know dates get changed very last second too though, but it sounds like they want to go before Disney.
The reference to Disney is no doubt related to the Disney D23 event on September 9, which will play host to the reveal of Amy Hennig’s Marvel game.
