Nintendo isn't planning any Direct presentations for the foreseeable future, VentureBeat reports (as spotted by GoNintendo).

Instead, Nintendo is telling developers to not wait for a Nintendo Direct "even if they have a big announcement," according to VentureBeat.

Future Nintendo Directs Reportedly Put on Hold for Foreseeable Future

With the ongoing global health crisis, filming some elements of the Nintendo Direct presentations confront the company with a difficult dilemma, as social distancing continues to be necessary for the health of its employees.

In place of Nintendo Directs, we can probably anticipate more random trailer drops like we saw with Paper Mario: The Origami King this past week.

Nintendo was originally planning a Direct for June to hit during the E3 2020 rush of game news, but that was scrapped last month as Japan's work-from-home order presented hurdles to production. Now it seems that with Nintendo telling partners not to wait for a Direct presentation, they will be absent until further notice.
