E3 2022: very bad news for the event that was going to be held online!

news event E3 2022: very bad news for the event that was going to be held online!

Since the pandemic, traditional video game gatherings have been heavily impacted, be it E3, gamescom, or even Paris Games Week. However, the organizers opted for another strategy, namely developing an online event. Until then, the main video game meetings had been able to continue, but 2022 will be a milestone: E3 simply will not take place.

Summary

  • A poorly shipped 2022 edition
  • There is no E3 this year, like in 2020

A poorly shipped 2022 edition

A few months ago we told you the story of a year that was going to be complicated for the great mass of video games in Los Angeles.. Just last January, the institution that is E3 seemed to waver when it was announced that, once again, it would be an all-digital event. In the end, and according to rumors, the internal situation seemed even more worrying, even mentioning a total cancellation of the 2022 edition due to the competition generated by the other events of this period.

In the end, the rumors sounded more alarmist than anything else. A few weeks ago, some renowned experts in the industry said that they had received a press release from the ESRB (the American ratings body) indicating that E3 would take place 100% digitally. But contrary to recent gamescom announcement which will be held remotely but also in physics for its 2022 edition, none of this will take place: there will be no E3 in physics, no remote E3!

There is no E3 this year, like in 2020

Overnight, the planet of video games shook: as in 2020, there will be no E3. This second historical cancellation of one of the iconic events in the world of video games was reported by Razer PR manager Will Powers. The latter said that he had received an email from ESA announcing the total cancellation of the 2022 edition of the event, including the online version.

This decision on the part of the organizer falls like a knife, while holding a digital event had been mentioned many times behind the scenes. Since then, the reactions of personalities in the field have multiplied, in particular Geoff Keighley.the producer of many shows like Summer Game Fest (on the sidelines of E3) and Opening Night Live (on the sidelines of gamescom), the one that now has a free field for its event.

However, to reassure gamers everywhere, E3 is definitely not dead and buried, as the ESA plans to return next year. The 2023 edition could come back stronger than ever, and perhaps even with a new formula that brings its recognition back.. At least, that’s what we hope!
