The ESA has officially unveiled its plans for a reimagined, all-virtual E3 2021 that will engage video game fans everywhere. With early commitments from Nintendo, Xbox, Capcom, Konami, Ubisoft, Take-Two Interactive, Warner Bros. Games and Koch Media, and more to come, E3 2021 will take place June 12 through June 15.
Developers will be showcasing their latest news and games directly to fans around the world. Moreover, the ESA will be working with media partners globally to help amplify and make this content available to everyone for free.
Stanley Pierre-Louis, President & CEO of the ESA, said:
“For more than two decades, E3 has been the premier venue to showcase the best that the video game industry has to offer. We are evolving this year’s E3 into a more inclusive event. However, we’ll still look to excite the fans with major reveals and insider opportunities that make this event the indispensable center stage for video games.”
While maintaining E3’s longstanding position as a central destination for industry networking, the digital format for E3 2021 means more people than ever can participate.
From the looks of it, Sony will – once again – skip the E3 event. Whether it will have a separate digital conference/event or not remains to be seen.

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.
