Though several organizers and video game publishers look to host its own digital showcase in replacement of the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) last June and carried on with the trend even entering into 2021, there are still reports suggesting that this year’s event will be holding its own in-person show this June in Los Angeles, California.

According to claims relayed by Video Game Chronicles, it is understood that the Electronic Software Association (ESA) is looking for partners to back the endeavor for this June. But, the group struggles to do so since many firms already pursue its own digital events atop of media outlets holding its own featured shows as well. Even more, partnered individuals like Geoff Keighley for instance stated to not be returning for 2021 as well.

Now in a new discovery from the Los Angeles Convention and Tourism Development Commission, 2021’s E3 live show has been updated to being cancelled. Once again, Video Game Chronicles issued the image from new documentation that indicate the cancelled event.

“Cancelled Live Event in 2021”, the document reads in regards to E3 2021. “Working with production teams broadcast options at La Live/LACC. Working on 2022 & 2023 license.” This new now marks the second consecutive year that E3 will not be held in a public space; the first being in 2020 during the rise of COVID-19.

In the original report from Video Game Chronicles, the post issues that the ESA aims to offer a virtual show with room to suggest an in-person event is not off the table. But now, the possibility is not plausible for this June either. The show was said to take place from June 15 to June 17 later this year.

Previously, the ESA stated to be building a “reimagined” E3 for this coming June. But now with no chance of seeing the show in action at the Los Angeles Convention Center, it is uncertain if the same ambitions will be encaptured in any other format. You can read the full report by heading here.
