Ever since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, numerous significant occasions and assemblies have either pivoted to a digital landscape or been completely called off. Among these casualties is the Electronic Entertainment Expo, more commonly referred to as E3. E3 was outright canceled in 2020 due to COVID-19 concerns and transitioned to a fully virtual format in 2021. This year, amid declining COVID cases and the successful proliferation of vaccines, E3 was initially slated to return as an in-person event, but this plan was later revised in January to be online-only.

However, for undisclosed reasons, it appears that the event has been entirely shelved. As per Will Powers, the PR director for Razer, a gaming peripheral manufacturer, the company received communication last night announcing the complete cancellation of the event, with no intentions for either physical or online proceedings.

As reported by Stephen Totilo from Axios, the ESA, the entity responsible for organizing E3, aims to reinstate the event in its entirety in 2023 as a dual physical and online experience. In the interim, however, the major game publishers are likely to resort to the same strategies employed in recent years – conducting their individual presentations independently around the customary E3 timeline.
