E3 2021 is all-virtual, includes Xbox, Nintendo and more

But no sign of Sony, EA or Activision Blizzard.

E3 2021 has been confirmed by its organisers as a free, online event and will include the likes of Xbox, Nintendo, Capcom, Ubisoft, Take-Two and more.

The “all-virtual” event is planned for the period running 12-15 June of this year (so likely 13-16 June in Australia) and will also include Warner Bros, Koch Media and Konami.

Eagle-eyed readers will note the event is lacking some big names, with Sony, EA and Activision Blizzard not appearing on a press release sent today.

“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 Stanley Pierre-Louis, President & CEO of E3’s organising body, the ESA. “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 center stage for video games.”
