For decades now, E3 has been the one event in the game industry that everyone looks forward to. Developers and publishers worked all year to put together show-stopping announcements and fans eagerly awaited the event to see what the next big games were going to be. Now all of that has officially come to an end, as E3 is now over.
While E3 has been on life support for a few years now, today the plug has been officially pulled. The Entertainment Software Association took to social media to confirm that E3 is now riding off into the sunset, leaving a massive void in the game industry. You can see the short-and-bittersweet message from the ESA below.
“After more than two decades of hosting an event that has served as a central showcase for the U.S. and global video game industry, the Entertainment Software Association (ESA) has decided to bring E3 to a close. ESA remains focused on advocating for ESA member companies and the industry workforce who fuel positive cultural and economic impact every day.”
