If I expected 2022 to be the year in which E3 (Electronic Entertainment Expo) would return with a person convention in Los Angeles, well, now it can officially leave these hopes behind. The Entertainment Software Association, which is the entity behind the annualized game convention, announced today that it will change to a format only online in 2022. This is the second consecutive year in which E3 will now be carried out only in line with the guilty. Behind this decision is again Covid-19.
In a message given to Camembert today, ESA revealed that plans to celebrate E3 at the Los Angeles Convention Center have been ruled out after the rapid propagation of the Omicron Variant Covid-19. Due to the continuous health risks surrounding Covid-19 and its potential impact on the safety of the exhibitors and assistants, the E3 will not be carried out in person in 2022, said the statement from ESA. However, we are enthusiastic about the future of E3, and we hope to announce more details soon».
As mentioned, this is the second consecutive year in which E3 will be carried out again in a single digital capacity. In general, however, three years are met since the E3 was carried out in person. In 2020, the E3 ended up being completely eliminated after the Covid-19 pandemic began in the first part of the year.
So, what will happen this year without the E3 to be carried out physically? Well, that's about to see. The digital version of last year's program was very defamed by many who chose to experience it, which means that surely has a lot of work to do if you want to improve the offer of last year. On the contrary, the presenter and producer Geoff Kafka has already confirmed that Summer Game Fest, which has become an annual event for new games ads, will return at the end of this year. Even though the E3 has dissolved in recent years, there will still be much important news about games this summer.
What do you think that the E3 returns to go in one direction only online? And do you think that the Convention will ever return to its previous form? Let me know all your thoughts in the comments or contact me on Twitter in @ mooreman12.
