California is slowly starting to reopen portions of the state following a more successful than anticipated vaccine rollout. One of the large-scale industries impacted by various Covid-19 shutdowns included conventions. One of the biggest in the gaming industry, E3, is coming back, kinda.
Instead of an in-person event for their June 2021 showcase, E3 will be offering a virtual convention.
We’re already hearing rumblings that Nintendo will have a large presence during E3’s virtual presentation. This seems to include another full-scale general Nintendo Direct showcase.
Confirmed companies also include Xbox, Capcom, Konami, Ubisoft, Take-Two Interactive, and Warner Bros. Games. It does appear that Sony Interactive will not be part of the lineup, but that could always change between now and June 12th.
Rumors of new releases from the big players abound, including the next Assassin’s Creed theme and more. We are also expecting something big from Sea of Thieves.
You can sign up for updates and news about E3 on their official website here.
E3 2021 virtual event will kick off on June 12th, and run til June 15th. We’ll do our best to keep you updated during the presentations.
