The ESA claims E3 will be back in 2023

e3 2022

The organising body behind E3, the Entertainment Software Association, has told The Washington Post that E3 will be back in 2023. The main problem with this, as the publication points out, is that most video game publishers prefer to host their own digital showcases these days saving costly trips to LA and they can put out the content when they want rather than have to showcase it on a specific date and month. Whether E3 works out next year remains to be seen as Geoff Keighley has hinted today that he’s planning a physical event for Sumer Game Fest next year.

“We’re excited about coming back in 2023 with both a digital and an in-person event,” ESA president and CEO Stan Pierre-Louis told The Washington Post in an interview. “As much as we love these digital events, and as much as they reach people and we want that global reach, we also know that there’s a really strong desire for people to convene — to be able to connect in person and see each other and talk about what makes games great.”

I think what’s great about all this experimentation is that companies of all sizes are trying to figure out what works best to promote the product and the content that they are looking to share with consumers,” he said. “And I think there is a space for a physical show; I think there’s an importance of having digital reach. Combining those two, I think there is a critical element of what we think E3 can provide.”
