News Update


E3, the world’s biggest game show, has been canceled for good.

They said in a statement, “After more than 20 years of E3, each one bigger than the last, it’s time to say goodbye.”

The note also said, “Thanks for the memories.” I thought it was a good game.

Analysts said the 2023 expo “struggled to remain relevant,” so it was canceled.

E3 was put on by the Entertainment Software Association (ESA), which told the BBC that the event will not happen again.

E3, which means for “Electronic Entertainment Expo,” didn’t happen in real life until 2021.

The most recent event in person took place in 2019.

That E3 “fizzled out” was “sad” to hear from game creator Hollie Bennett.

That it was “hard to sum up the impact E3 had on the industry” was what she wrote on X, which used to be Twitter.

She wrote, “Your year almost revolved around it!”

“Nothing generated buzz like E3 did.”

The main show
Stanley Pierre-Louis, President and CEO of the ESA, said in a statement, “ESA’s focus and priority remain advocating for ESA member companies and the industry workforce who fuel positive cultural and economic impact every day.”

E3 used to be the biggest event for showing off new games and tech.

It began in Los Angeles in 1995 as a trade show. That was the year after the PlayStation came out and the year before the Nintendo 64.

At its event in 2005, it showed off the Xbox 360, the PlayStation 3, and a Nintendo Wii prototype.

IGN, a game website, says that with 70,000 visitors, that was the most popular expo it has ever had.

Nintendo, Ubisoft, and Sony started releasing new games at their own events, though, making E3 less important and less able to bring in the exclusive reveals it used to.

After that, it had to stop because of the pandemic.
