“E3 LIVE EVENT CANCELLED” SAYS LOS ANGELES CITY PLAN
-Los Angeles city plan for 2021 reveals possible cancellation of this years’ E3 in-person event.
Don’t know about you but… I am beginning to think that California’s governor Gavin Newsom is secretly intending to bankrupt his entire state.
As if things hadn’t already gotten pretty bad at the Golden State, the latest gaming news has it that the classic E3 live event, which was going to be hosted in Los Angeles, is not going to be happening this year either.
WHY ELSE? The COVID-19 pandemic, no less.
Similarly to last year’s rendition, the E3 showcase will be held entirely in the ‘online’ format, consisting of several streaming “sessions”, throughout a 3-day time frame between the days of June 15th to 17th, 2021.

Experience E3 2021, from the comfort of your screen!
-It’s ME, the COVID-19 Lockdown, and I’ve come to ‘screw up’ with your whole 2021 gaming calendar.
Thankfully, that above is a fictional conversation, but we’re pretty sure you already got the idea: One of the world’s top gaming expos has been cancelled, yet another time, and for no other reason -or excuse, depends whom you ask– than the COVID-19 pandemic.
How did we find out?
According to several online reports based on the agenda plan for 2021 by the Los Angeles city authorities, the classic E3 gaming expo, produced by the Entertainment Software Association, was among the list of live events that won’t be taking place this year.
As stated by the E3 organizers to the folks at GamesRadar:
“We can confirm that we are transforming the E3 experience for 2021 and will soon share the exact details on how we’re bringing the global video game community together. We are having great conversations with publishers, developers and companies across the board.”
“Experience”… yeah… that’s a ‘cute’ way of putting it. :/
Anyhoo, the online streams will happen, as we previously said, between the days of June 15th and 17th, and will include various material like the expected coming-attraction sneak peeks and some additional two-hour casts from gaming and media personalities.
