What about 2024, you might ask? Nothing has been officially announced or cancelled yet, but the ESA did confirm that any E3-related event next year won’t take place at the Los Angeles Convention Center in California.

As big gaming companies like Sony, Nintendo, and Electronic Arts have abandoned E3 for solo events offsite and online, E3 has struggled to attract enough high-profile franchises and developers to fill the sprawling halls of the convention center, leaving the event feeling more empty than usual even before it went on hiatus following the covid-19 pandemic.
