E3, the great video game event, suffered the consequences of the pandemic. The organization decided to celebrate the event in digital format in 2021, but this year it chose to cancel it completely. Now, however, he has confirmed that will return in 2023 with hybrid format.

The news has been confirmed by the president and executive director of the ESA, Stan Pierre-Louis, in a interview with The Washington Post newspaper. “We are excited to return in 2023 with both a digital and face-to-face event,” the executive said on Tuesday.

Pierre-Louis has made it clear that they highly value digital events and the global reach they provide. However, he believes that people also want to meet in person “to see each other and talk about what makes games great.”

In this sense, the organization has confirmed that the next E3 will combine the face-to-face experience with the digital one, although it has not provided more details. “I think there’s a critical element to what we think E3 can provide,” said Pierre-Louis.

At the moment we do not have details about the date of the event. Usually, the organization announces when it will hold the next E3 during the current year’s event, but since it was canceled this year, it seems that we will have to wait a little longer to know this information.
