We’ve held off on reporting this news for a while now because we weren’t willing to talk about it until we got an official confirmation. Well, today we got our confirmation. Due to the current world events, the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3), the world’s biggest trade show and the Super Bowl of video games, will take place by streaming. That means, like 2020’s E3, there will not be a live in-person event this year.

However, unlike last year, where the major publishers spread out their events so far away from each other, people only tuned into the events they had a previous interest in, this year’s digital E3 will be happening over the source of a multi-day event beginning on June 12th, 2021. The major publishers who typically preview their upcoming games at E3 are expected to return and show their upcoming catalog of games for platforms like the PC, PS5, Xbox Series X/S and Nintendo Switch.

I think this is great news. Streaming has been a preferred method of viewing new game announcements for a few years now, and by getting all the publishers to make their streaming events together, it should be easier to keep track of all the announcements.

You can stay tuned here for all the latest news about the event!
