It’s been confirmed that E3, the most important computer game event within the world, is about to travel ahead this year.
Instead of its usual l. a. location, it’ll be held digitally and free for everybody to attend thanks to the pandemic.
Nintendo, Xbox, Konami, and Ubisoft are a number of the developers which have agreed to participate.
Notably absent are EA, Activision, and Sony, but this isn’t unusual and often happened before the pandemic too.
The show, which connects developers and publishers with gamers was forced to cancel last year due to global lockdowns.
Entertainment Software Association, which runs the event, hasn’t yet given any clues about how it’ll take hold.
“For quite 20 years, E3 has been the premier venue to showcase the simplest that the computer game industry has got to offer while uniting the planet through games,” said Stanley Pierre-Louis, who runs ESA.
“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 center stage for video games.”
The event will run from 12-15 June.
