The list of companies confirmed for the all-virtual E3 2021 continues to grow with the addition of several high-profile video game publishers and developers, as well as tech, hardware and streaming companies. SQUARE ENIX, SEGA, BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment, XSEED Games / Marvelous USA, Inc., Gearbox Entertainment, Freedom Games, Devious Eye Entertainment, Turtle Beach, Verizon and Binge.com are joining the fray and preparing to bring major announcements and reveals to fans throughout E3, which takes place June 12 through June 15.
“E3 2021 is set to continue its legacy as the premier video game industry event as we add new publishers, sponsors and partners” said Stanley Pierre-Louis, President & CEO of the ESA. “We can’t wait to share more details about this virtual event for audiences around the globe.”
Previously confirmed E3 partners include Nintendo, Xbox, Capcom, Ubisoft, Take-Two Interactive and Warner Bros. Games.
Ubisoft had already confirmed their Ubisoft Forward event for June 12 at 12 PM PT and we’ll be waiting on all the others on what they wish to do for their big presentations.
E3 hasn’t been the same since the pandemic hit the world hard in 2020 making last years events for new games and hardware to be shown off in unique ways through digital events. In 2021 it will still be digital but it looks like there will be a days of showcases and conferences from all the major companies like Xbox, Ubisoft, Square Enix, etc. Sony and EA won’t be participating as we expected so we’ll see what they have to show in the coming weeks.
Stay tuned for more updates on E3 2021!
