E3’s physical event for 2021 has been cancelled, according to Los Angeles city documents published this week.

In a new report published by the Board of Los Angeles Convention and Tourism Development Commission, a sales update lists E3 2021 as a “cancelled live event”.

The document states that the Convention board is working with E3 organiser The Entertainment Software Association (ESA) on broadcast options at the Los Angeles Convention Center and the nearby LA Live complex. The City board also claims it’s “working” on a 2022 and 2023 license for E3.

The cancellation would mark the second year in a row the E3 event has been called off due to the coronavirus pandemic.

As exclusively revealed by VGC this month, The ESA has been pushing forward with plans for a digital E3 event this summer, but it still requires the backing of major games companies.





Worst Next Gen launch EVER.

Expected but shit news all the same.
I just finished re-watching South Park's epic trilogy about "PS4 vs XBOX One ". That feels like it was a lifetime ago. Unbelievable how uneventful game industry has become. PS5 launch feels like a wet fart compared to PS4 HYPE. Bah. I'm fucking sad.

I remember when Nintendo decided to highlight Wii heart monitors??!

Then on the opposite end were the showstopper grand slam reveals for Twilight Princess and Breath of the Wild.

Thank you for all the memories E3, the good and the bad.

Oh yeah, the one site writing about this who thought they were above crediting Rösti on the other forum for breaking the news. 😂

Guess they were too busy spamming links to their own site to give credit where due. 😂

Are people seriously surprised by this news? lol

I don't know if MS, Nintendo or Sony would've had anything far along enough to show gameplay-wise.

Covid really impacted development on projects. Please enjoy more remasters and upgrades.

That's the way of the internet media I guess. I don't read Reee, so I couldn't know the original source. You did good linking the source.

I find myself pretty indifferent to this. I really don't want to see social distancing E3.

Directs/StateofPay are better than sitting through hours of BS about "We here at ____ believe in giving power back to gamers bla bla" at E3.

not to mention the cringe. I watch it on mute frankly.

I like it when a CEO in a hoodie tells me he wants to give power back to the gamers. I say "wooo."
