The event is not canceled, but it will not take place in 2 weeks. See you there next year.
GDC 2020 is postponed.
Here's the official statement from GDC:
"After close consultation with our partners in the game development industry and community around the world, we’ve made the difficult decision to postpone the Game Developers Conference this March.
Having spent the past year preparing for the show with our advisory boards, speakers, exhibitors, and event partners, we're genuinely upset and disappointed not to be able to host you at this time.
We want to thank all our customers and partners for their support, open discussions and encouragement. As everyone has been reminding us, great things happen when the community comes together and connects at GDC. For this reason, we fully intend to host a GDC event later in the summer. We will be working with our partners to finalize the details and will share more information about our plans in the coming weeks".
Independent Games Festival and Game Developers Choice Awards will be streamed. Most of the talks will be available online. If you are a currently registered paid passholder, you will be receiving an email about your registration status and any next steps regarding refunds, the official FAQ stated.
