ESA reportedly confirmed next year’s schedule with partners on Friday (via GI.biz), stating that it would hold a “reimagined” event in 2021.
This year’s E3 was officially cancelled last month amid concerns over the COVID-19 pandemic. Instead the ESA said it was “exploring options for an online E3 event this summer.”
It’s not clear if E3 intends to go ahead with the digital event in 2020, however media outlet IGN announced on Friday that it would hold its own Summer of Gaming digital event during E3’s early June slot.
The event will include live broadcasts and on-demand programming, featuring publisher presentations and remote developer interviews.
A number of games publishers are set to hold their own digital events in the absence of E3.
