The event is usually held in Los Angeles, California, but it has also been hosted in other cities like Atlanta and Santa Monica in the past. The event is attended by industry professionals, media, and gaming enthusiasts from around the world.
ESA and ReedPop announce the cancellation of the E3 2023 event
The Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) 2023 has been officially canceled by the Entertainment Software Association (ESA) and ReedPop, due to multiple challenges that proved too difficult to overcome. GamesIndustry.biz brings the sad information.
ESA president and CEO Stanley Pierre-Louis explained that the timeline for game development had been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, economic headwinds caused a few companies to reassess how they invest in large marketing events, and companies are trying to figure out how to find the right balance between in-person events and digital marketing opportunities. Despite this, the ESA remains committed to providing a platform for industry marketing and convening, but will be focusing on finding the right balance for the industry’s current and ongoing needs. This cancellation is a significant blow to the video game industry, as E3 is one of the largest events of the year for the sector, and has historically been used by companies to make announcements about game products and services.
The E3 event provides a platform for gaming companies to showcase their latest products, create hype around upcoming releases, and make important business deals. Due to its significance in the gaming industry, the event is closely followed by gaming enthusiasts and industry insiders alike.
