the great video game event will not take place this year

  • 22

There will be no E3 in 2022. Unlike last year, where the organization decided to hold the event in digital format due to the health risks related to COVID-19, this year it chose to cancel it completely. The news, which first came to light through a tweet Razer’s head of public relations, has been confirmed by the ESA (Entertainment Software Association) in a statement.

We will devote all of our energy and resources to delivering a revitalized physical and digital E3 experience next summer. Whether enjoyed from the exhibit center or on your favorite devices, the 2023 showcase will bring the community, media and industry together in an entirely new format and interactive experience. We hope to introduce E3 to fans around the world at a live event from Los Angeles in 2023.

E3 is officially postponed until 2023

The truth is that the organization did not provide the reasons why it decided to cancel this year’s event, although previously had expressed concern about the health risks of COVID-19 and its potential impact on the safety of exhibitors and attendees. In any case, the ESA preferred to focus on its plans for 2023, where it plans to offer a face-to-face and digital experience from Los Angeles, with a new format.

This is not the first time that the organization of the event, which has been held since 1995, has decided to skip a year. In 2020, the ESA was forced to suspend it due to the pandemic. Product of the same threat, the 2021 meeting did take place, but completely digitally. E3 2022, although it did not have a confirmed date, was on track to take place this year, but ultimately that will not happen.

Following the news of the cancellation of E3 2022, the organizers of the Summer Game Festa video game event run by The Game Awards creator Geoff Keighley, remembered on Twitter that their proposal will take place in June with a “spectacular live launch hosted by Keighley and they promise to provide more details in the future. Will it help fill the void left by E3 this year? We’ll find out in time.”
