E3 2022 canceled, Summer Game Fest announces June event

According to multiple sources, E3 has officially been canceled.

No in-person or digital E3 event is planned for this year. This means that the in-person gaming expo has been cancelled for a third time in a row. ESA, the organization behind this gaming show, confirmed today that it will focus on E3 2023. The news broke after Razer Product Manager Will Powers posted about an email that he just received about the event cancellation.

The E3 2022 was expected to be a big comeback after underwhelming 2021 digital event and lack of any event in 2020. In January this year, ESA announced plans for digital 2022 event, just when the Omicron variant of COVID-19 was spreading around the globe. The organization has not provided any updates ever since.

Today, ESA confirmed in a public statement that the event has been canceled, and it will return in 2023 in an all-new format.

Interestingly, at the same time the news about E3 cancellation broke, Game Award’s Geoff Keighley announced that his Summer Game Fest will have a June live event hosted by the Geoff himself. No date has been provided yet. The team behind the SGF probably needs to confirm it with multiple game studios first.
