The Electronic Entertainment Expo, popularly known as E3, will be returning this year but will be in a completely virtual format.
One of the biggest videogame events of the year in the past, E3 was renowned for some of the biggest game announcements in the industry.
However, the likes of Sony started to stray in recent years, opting to host their own events instead due to the enormous cost associated with the event.
E3 would usually attract gamers from around the world to Los Angeles, but there will be no major crowds at the 2021 event, with it being confirmed that it will be held in a virtual format.
There was good news in that the likes of Nintendo, Microsoft and Ubisoft would be in attendance to show off their work, however, it seems that Sony will remain absent.
E3 2021 will run from 12-15 June and can be watched online, though the organisers have promised it will still be a big event with many of the largest companies in the game space in attendance.
“We are evolving this year’s E3 into a more inclusive event, but will still look to excite the fans with major reveals and insider opportunities that make this event the indispensable centre stage for video games,” said ESA President and CEO Stanley Pierre-Louis in a release, according to Forbes.
