The Entertainment Software Association has announced that E3 2021 will take place online from June 12 through June 15.
Developers will be able to showcase their titles to viewers around the world who can attend for free. Those confirmed presenting new games are Nintendo, Xbox, Capcom, Konami, Ubisoft, Take-Two Interactive, and Warner Bros. Games, and Koch Media.
“For more than two decades, E3 has been the premier venue to showcase the best that the video game industry has to offer, while uniting the world through games,” said Stanley Pierre-Louis, President & CEO of the ESA. “We are evolving this year’s E3 into a more inclusive event, but will still look to excite the fans with major reveals and insider opportunities that make this event the indispensable center stage for video games.”
The ESA has also shared that they plan to bring back the in-person event with E3 2022. However, due to the pandemic, this year’s events have been canceled once again. It has a lot to do with flights and how different countries are still strict about travel. The cancellation makes sense.
One last bit of news is that Sony will not be attending E3 2021 this year. The company has removed itself from the E3 show floor for the last few years and doesn’t seem to want to take part in the digital event.
More developers and publishers will be announced who are presenting at this year’s E3.
