E3 2021

ESA’s annual trade show E3 has been on a decline for many years now, and it seems that this year has put yet another nail in the coffin on this long-running show. The organization has announced to all its partners that the digital showcase has been canceled for this year, as originally revealed by Razer PR lead Will Powers on Twitter.

This comes shortly after the announcement of the cancelation of E3 2022’s in-person event, which was followed by rumours of cancelation of the digital show as well (although recently insider Tom Henderson suggested that a digital show might still happen).

In a statement shared with IGN, the ESA revealed that the show is preparing to make a big comeback next year, and part of the reason for this year’s cancelation is to allow the organization to focus its limited resources on making next year’s event a grand one.

“We will devote all our energy and resources to delivering a revitalized physical and digital E3 experience next summer. Whether enjoyed from the show floor or your favorite devices, the 2023 showcase will bring the community, media, and industry back together in an all-new format and interactive experience. We look forward to presenting E3 to fans around the world live from Los Angeles in 2023,” the statement reads.

Over on Twitter, reputable industry insider Jeff Grubb has also posted about how the choice for major publishers to go with Geoff Keighley’s Summer Game Fest (which will take place in June) is also part of the reason why ESA chose to disband this year’s show. On that note, it’s also rumoured that Xbox is also partnering with publishers to host their own E3-style show sometime in June- read more on that through here.
