The biggest annual expo for the video gaming industry, E3, has been postponed.
After interruption due to Covid-19, the show was scheduled to resume this June in Los Angeles, however the US’s Entertainment Software Association (ESA) and events organizer Reedpop announced in a joint statement that it would no longer be taking place.
Since 1995, E3, sometimes known as “video game Christmas” by fans, has been a regular event on the calendar of the video game industry. It is generally the time when game developers and console makers reveal what players might expect in the future.
E3’s return for this year was initially announced last June alongside the confirmation that E3 2022 had been canceled. The news comes as multiple big names in the industry, from Xbox, Nintendo, PlayStation, and more recently, Ubisoft announced that it would not be attending E3 in any capacity, with most opting to host their own digital showcases.
