The Electronic Entertainment Expo (ESA) has announced that the E3 will return to Los Angeles in the second week of 2023. The long-awaited return of the historic video game event will occur after a series of setbacks stemming from the COVID-19 pandemic. The organization, which decided to make a celebration completely online in 2021, chose to cancel it completely this year.
In the midst of an industry in constant evolution and growth, with events such as the Xbox & Bethesda Games Showcase, the Summer Game Fest and Blizzard’s BlizzCon, the ESA will try to recover the prominence of its proposal with a strong promise: “a week of titanic revelations AAA, shocking world premieres and exclusive access to the future of video games,” according to Variety.
In Los Angeles, but with a digital part
While E3 will host publishers, developers, journalists, content creators, manufacturers, and licensors in Los Angeles, the event will also have a digital partalthough the organization has not yet provided the exact date of the same and the agenda of activities, although it has confirmed that the media registration will begin at the end of this year and the rest of the details will arrive “in the coming months.”
The truth is that the ESA is delegating part of the responsibility of the organization to a new partner. This is ReedPop, the production company known for organizing Penny Arcade Expo and New York Comic Con. Working together would allow a large-scale event to be held without inconvenience. Recall that the last time E3 was held in person, the event attracted 66,100 people.
For now, we will have to wait to see if E3 manages to make a strong foothold in the video game industry as it did for many years. Although it seems to have lost importance, it is one of the most legendary events in the industry. Except for a few interruptions, it has been held since 1995. How much has the world of video games changed since then, right?
