E3 2021 Cancelled in Favour of (Another) All-Digital Event

E3 undoubtedly represents one of the most major gaming events on the annual calendar. However, as you may recall, the physical event was cancelled last year due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation. With hopes that the physical event may have been able to return this year, however, it would appear that in a report via DSOGaming, an update to The Board of Los Angeles Convention and Tourism Development Commission convention schedule may have inadvertently let the cat out of the bag that E3 2021 is, again, going to be an all-digital affair!

E3 2021 Physical Event is (Probably) Canceled!

In the updated report, it can clearly be seen that E3 is not going ahead in Los Angeles. It will, instead, be re-organized as an online/all-digital showcase pretty much exactly as we saw last year. While this will undoubtedly be disappointing news to some, however, this isn’t all bad.

With the event being all-digital, it opens the doors to a lot more developers being able to reveal their titles. With some big launches/reveals expected, particular in regards to bolstering the recently released PS5 and Xbox Series X, exciting things are on the way.

What Do We Think?

We should note that, at the time of writing, the official E3 website is neither confirming nor denying the cancellation of the physical event. Albeit, a quick look (via the link here) does already show significant leanings towards watching videos rather than buying tickets. With E3 2021 set to officially kick off on June 15th though, with the Coronavirus still showing little signs of being any notable less significant then, we’d suggest you get yourself a nice gaming chair and get comfy because there’s going to be plenty of amazing things to (probably) check out from the comfort of your own home!
