While it has been already reported that the biggest gaming expo E3 will not be taking place this year, the ESA or Entertainment Software Association has confirmed that E3 will be back in 2021 as a reimagined event.
Gamespot first revealed the plans of the ESA about E3 2021 and in their statement, they said, “We thank everyone who shared their views on reimagining E3 this year. We look forward to bringing you E3 2021 as a reimagined event that brings fans, media, and the industry together in a showcase that celebrates the global video game industry.”
This new information by the ESA points towards making E3 a gamer-centric event rather than just having developers show off their upcoming games. If more and more people are invested in the event then it will certainly thrive in the future.
The spread of the Coronavirus or the Covid-19 virus has put the entire world on a sudden halt, with almost every major outdoor activity being stopped for the foreseeable future.
As much as this is a bummer for gaming fans, enthusiasts, game developers, and others, the security and health of the masses outweigh the entertainment aspects of these live events and this is a step in the right direction.
2020 will certainly be incomplete without an E3 event but lately, major developers have been skipping the event, this started with PlayStation’s no show at E3 2019, and suit other developers followed too.
It remains to be seen if other major gaming events are canceled due to the outbreak of this virus, we will keep you updated as and when new information is made available.
