Facepunch Studios, which is responsible for the development of Rust, has canceled its plans for the San Francisco GDC as team members are facing an “IRL” threat (in real life) that they are taking seriously. About this studio reported in messages on your Twitter account:
This is not a statement we are happy to announce.
Due to the IRL threat, which we must take seriously, we will have to cancel the GDC meetup in San Fran next week. ????

The studio asked users to send their works and portfolios to an email address. She did not explain exactly what the threat is, but it is very sad to see the developers of such a large project as Rust skip a public exhibition so as not to risk the lives of their employees.
“It is important to remember that developers are really people. And when it comes to their safety, this issue becomes number 1 for us,” the studio wrote.
