E3 is 2023 is no more

Once the most popular gaming convention has been canceled a second year in a row.

IGN reports that ESA has just sent out an email to its members confirming it will not host the E3 event this year. The organization explains that the event “simply did not garner the sustained interest necessary to execute it in a way that would showcase the size, strength, and impact of our industry.”

Last year, the Entertainment Software Association (ESA) confirmed they are canceling E3 2022, but promised to return to the in-person format of the trade show next year. However, many publishers have since started doing their own online events, and it appears that this format has won over the physical trade show.

Update: ESA confirms the report:

E3 has seen little interest from the most popular brands. The most recent announcement from Microsoft confirmed they will not be present at the Los Angeles Convention Center where E3 is held. Instead, the company plans its online June 11th event.

Earlier this year, Nintendo announced it will not be part of E3 either. According to an IGN report from January, neither of the big three console makers, including Sony, will attend E3.

The E3 2023 was supposed to start in 72 days (on June 13).
