The Entertainment Software Association has announced the permanent cancellation of the Electronic Entertainment Expo. Better known as E3, the show has been held since 1995 and was often considered the largest and most prestigious gaming event of the year. For this reason, many iconic games and other related products were announced.
In addition to the tweet above, the ESA announced the news in an interview with The Washington Post. According to CEO Stanley Pierre-Louis, the fair is being stopped due to several factors: new competitors, partners withdrawing, changing consumer viewing behavior and the consequences of the pandemic.
Several major manufacturers have now set up their own format to make major announcements, including Nintendo Direct and Sony State of Play. In addition, the 2020 and 2022 editions have been canceled due to the pandemic. A virtual variant was held in 2021, which was negatively assessed by many.
