After a no-show last year, the ESA has announced that E3 will return as an all digital event this year with several publishers taking part. The publishers announced to be taking part so far are Nintendo, Xbox, Capcom, Konami, Ubisoft, Take-Two, Warner Bros and Koch Media, who will all have some involvement in the event.
Interestingly, the noticeable absences include Sony, EA, Activision Blizzard, Sega, Bandai Namco and Square Enix. There’s obviously still time before the event takes place for these publishers to sign on.
We don’t know a lot about what the event will entail outside of the fact that it’s taking place between June 12tgh and June 15th. The ESA said in a press release that “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.”
We’ll keep you posted when we know more about E3 in 2021 and what that means for you. In a press release sent to us, the ESA said that they will be working with media partners globally to amplify content from the show, so hopefully that means we’ll be able to give you an inside look.
