Emphasizing electronic entertainment
According to video game writer and insider Tom Henderson, the ESRB has sent e-mails out to game developers indicating that this year’s E3 will once again be a digital only event. While the organization previously indicated this year’s event would follow the digital only trend from 2021, rumors have since spread that the event would be cancelled outright. If true, this tweet seems to tell us that things are still on, albeit in a digital only capacity. However, as of now, there has been no official announcement made on the subject.
The Electronic Entertainment Expo held its first convention in 1995, but has had some rocky times in recent years. The show was outright canceled in 2020, and held only on digital platforms in 2021. Could E3 be moving in the direction of holding their event online only for the foreseeable future? Currently, it’s expected to be held in June of this year, in whatever form it takes. Nintendo may not have an official presence at the show, but it’s probably a safe bet that a new Nintendo Direct will premiere around the same time.
