We learned from a tweet from Razer’s Will Powers, who said that he had received an email announcing E3 would be cancelled as a digital event.
The ESA released a statement confirming the news while seemingly revealing that the exhibition will return in 2023 “with a reinvigorated showcase” while this year’s event was cancelled due to Covid-19.
Axio’s Stephen Totilo received a communication from an ESA representative with the news.
This is now the second time the ESA has had to cancel due to the ongoing pandemic. Each year, the need for E3 becomes far less and while it’s always a great way to network and meet new people, it’s always been overshadowed by events like Summer Game Fest.
Excited to share that @SummerGameFest will return this June with a slate of events. We'll be producing another Kickoff Live show with announcements, news and first looks.
