E3 2022 will not take place this year, as a digital or in-person event, but that will change next year. E3, which is organized each year by the Entertainment Software Association, has affirmed that it will return in 2023 as a digital and physical event.
“We’re looking forward to returning in 2023 with both a digital and an in-person event,” ESA president and CEO Stan Pierre-Louis told The Washington Post. “As much as we love these digital events, and as much as we want that worldwide reach, we also know that there’s a very strong need for people to convene—to be able to interact in person, see each other, and speak about what makes games great.”
Due to the pandemic, E3 2020 was canceled, however, E3 2021 returned as a digital-only event. Although E3 2022 will not take place, events like Geoff Keighley’s Summer Game Fest Live and the Microsoft/Bethesda press conference, among others, are occupying the traditional E3 area.
The ESA has been chastised for its participation in releasing personal data for over 2,000 journalists and analysts, among other things. For years, some have wondered what role the program would play in the future.
E3 2023’s dates and specifications have yet to be confirmed. The exhibition is hosted at the Los Angeles Convention Center in June.
