It appears that the biggest gaming event, E3, won’t – once again – happen. The Board of Los Angeles Convention and Tourism Development Commission has published a new report, stating that this upcoming gaming event has been cancelled.
According to the report, the Convention board is working with ESA for an online event. Although nothing is set in stone yet, it appears that we’ll have an online replacement. Moreover, the Convention board is also working with ESA for a 2022 and 2023 license.
It will be interesting to see whether this online event will be better than the 2020 Summer Game Fest. From what we know so far, there will also be a Summer Game Fest for 2021. My guess is that both Microsoft and Sony will also have digital conferences, similar to those of 2020.
So yeah, we don’t really know how this E3 2021 online gaming event will work.
Stay tuned for more!
John is the founder and Editor in Chief at DSOGaming. He is a PC gaming fan and highly supports the modding and indie communities. Before creating DSOGaming, John worked on numerous gaming websites. While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved – and still does – the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2. John has also written a higher degree thesis on the “The Evolution of PC graphics cards.”
