4-day Virtual E3 2021 engages video game fans worldwide this June

KUALA LUMPUR: It’s a ‘Game On’ for E3 as the Entertainment Software Association (ESA) officially unveils plans for a reimagined, all-virtual four-day E3 2021, beginning June 12.

Engaging video game fans everywhere, developers will be showcasing their latest news and games directly to fans worldwide.

According to a statement, the ESA will be working with media partners globally to help amplify and make this content available to everyone, for free.

Video game industry showcase returns with confirmed partners being Nintendo, Xbox, Capcom, Konami, Ubisoft, Take-Two Interactive, Warner Bros. Games and Koch Media.

“For more than two decades, E3 has been the premier venue to showcase the best that the video game industry has to offer, while uniting the world through games,” said the ESA President and Chief Executive Officer, Stanley Pierre-Louis.

“We are evolving this year’s E3 into a more inclusive event, but will still look to excite the fans with major reveals and insider opportunities that make this event the indispensable centre stage for video games.”

While maintaining E3’s longstanding position as a central destination for industry networking — where new partnerships and connections between video game publishers, developers and media are made — the digital format for E3 2021 means more people than ever can participate.

The ESA looks forward to coming back together to celebrate E3 2022 in person. – Bernama
