Documents for an upcoming meeting of the Los Angeles Convention and Tourism Development Board were released recently and in the documents, the E3 event was included as a “Cancelled Live Event in 2021.”
The (E3) Electronic Entertainment Expo 2021 will be the 26th Electronic Entertainment Expo, in which hardware manufacturers, software developers, and publishers from the video game industry will present new and upcoming products to the audience. This includes everything from hardware to software and even game announcements.
E3 2021 is going to be an online event this year
E3 2020 event was cancelled last year due to the Global Covid-19 pandemic, and while the ESA looked for ways to replace it with an “online event”, in the end, nothing came out of it. Earlier this year the ESA said “we are transforming the E3 experience for 2021 and will soon share exact details on how we’re bringing the global video game community together” and the above mentioned document also contains the note, “working with production team on broadcast options at LA Live/LACC”. It’s certainly possible to expect this year’s E3 as an “Online event”.
E3 is one of the biggest gaming conventions in the world and companies such as Microsoft, Bethesda, Ubisoft and many more make their way here to show gamers what they have planned for the future. It is one of the most highly awaited gaming events in the world.
The Convention and Tourism Development Board document notes stated that they are, “Working on 2022 and 2023 license”, but there’s a chance that if things don’t come together this year, we won’t be able to see E3 as a LAN event.
