Forums - Gaming Discussion - E3 2022 digital event has officially been cancelled.

Source: https://www.ign.com/articles/e3-2022-officially-canceled

From the article:

"After previously canceling its in-person E3 2022 event, the ESA has now informed its partners that there will be no digital event equivalent this year either - meaning E3 2022 has fully been canceled. ...

The ESA has shared an official statement with IGN confirming E3 2022's cancellation and announcing that E3 will return in 2023 with "a reinvigorated showcase."

"We will devote all our energy and resources to delivering a revitalized physical and digital E3 experience next summer. Whether enjoyed from the show floor or your favorite devices, the 2023 showcase will bring the community, media, and industry back together in an all-new format and interactive experience.

"We look forward to presenting E3 to fans around the world live from Los Angeles in 2023."

Well, I guess everyone will be having separate events this year. E3 isn't dead yet since it's still planned for next year, but this is now the second time we haven't had one. I do like the novelty of this big industry-wide event on a single weekend, but streaming video has really rendered it obsolete.

Not even a digital event equivalent? Thats a shame, I was looking forward to writing "You know, E3 is not what it used to be" in the official E3 thread.



I'd argue it wasn't cancelled, because I'm not sure it was ever scheduled.

"But in a follow-up communication with IGN, the ESA added that it could not confirm at this time whether or not there would be a digital event this year instead of the physical event, as there was in 2021."
"Its 2022 show never had firm dates set and was never on the official LACC calendar, despite past shows’ physical and digital being scheduled over a year in advance"

It has been reported by Mike Futterish that the ESA had actually abandoned its dates at the LA Convention Center in November, suggesting that COVID concerns are a "spin".
They canceled the Center 7 months early? Cancelled in person 6 months early. Plus they never put up plans for anything.



You are bound to love Earthbound.

If it does come back in person next year this for the best I'd say since the one last year was a shitshow and the hype of being in person again would help a lot at improving over that. If Nintendo and Microsoft still do something in summer things won't really change that much since they were the only ones most people cared for last time. I hope it is able to come back strong in 2023 since it'd really suck if it truly died though at this point that is looking increasingly likely.



Surprised they're not having the online event, since they had a long time to plan for it.
The way things are going, I wouldn't be surprised if we never get another E3 at this point.

I beat you to it, but yours is more creative. Split the internet points 50/50?
