Under the ongoing development for the June announcement show that was E3, the industry fully knows it is not happening. Despite the ESA sharing the update on the annual Los Angeles show, that is not stopping other organized events to take place. Just to name a few, Summer Game Fest, PC Gaming Show, and Ubisoft Forward are all being held independently later this June. And that is only the start.
Additionally, Microsoft shared it plans to hold its own Xbox Games Showcase later this summer as well on June 11th. The event will be comprised of the expected presentation as well as a following Starfield presentation hosted by Bethesda Game Studios directly after. Elsewhere, it is expected Nintendo could potentially host its own event as well knowing the firm was one the of the first to confirm its absence for E3 back in February.
From Nintendo on Tuesday, the Japanese company reveals its plans for a new Nintendo Live event. Originally unique to Japan, the first ever North American show will be held this September in Seattle, Washington.
