It’s official, E3 2021 has been dated with it starting on June 15 and lasting until June 17.
The news comes from Gameindustry.biz, who discussed with partners at the ESA (The Entertainment Software Association). They stated that they would hold a “reimagined” event next year, though they didn’t specify exactly what that meant. For those who weren’t aware, E3 2020 was canceled (along with several other events) due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. The ESA made comments earlier in the year about working with partners to deliver some sort of online experience, though that is currently yet to be revealed.
“exploring options with our members to coordinate an online experience to showcase industry announcements and news in June 2020.”
We expect to see an official statement made by the ESA on their website real soon, and most likely their plans revolving around their E3 2020 replacement. Whether they’re canceled or not we shall learn very soon. We’ll be sure to keep you all updated on E3 2021, and will update this post once the official statement is issued.
As for them “reimagining” E3, what do you guys think that might mean? Or, what do you guys think they need to do in order to improve the event? Let us know down below!
