Entertainment Software Association (ESA) President and CEO Stan Pierre-Louis, responsible for organizing E3, announced that the Video Game Expo will return in 2023 with a new online and in-person event, just like in the years before the pandemic. In the last three years, E3 has been canceled twice, in 2020 due to Covid-19 and this year for organizational problems. Still, in 2023, the Los Angeles fair will return in a reinvigorated form, with all the events that have been thrilling players from all over the world for years.
“We look forward to returning in 2023 with a digital and in-person event,” Stan Pierre-Louis told The Washington Post, “we love online events and are fans of how they reach people in every corner of the world, but we also know that there are many fans who want to meet and connect in person, to talk about everything that makes video games wonderful. “
For this year, the reins have passed into the hands of the Canadian journalist Geoff Keighley, former founder of The Game Awards, who will present the Summer Game Fest on June 9 and many other events during the summer, with announcements and video game trailers. Next year, events should return to being less fragmented, with E3 welcoming all the major videogame producers under the roof of the Los Angeles Convention Center.
