E3 2023
Basic Information

E3 2023 was planned to have been the twenty-seventh E3 convention, planned to have been held from June 13–16, 2023 at the Los Angeles Convention Center. It would have been the first in-person E3 event since E3 2019 - subsequent E3 conventions up to this point were either cancelled or moved entirely online due to concerns over COVID-19.[1]

Cancellation[ | ]

On March 30, 2023, E3 2023 was officially cancelled by the ESA. Its president and CEO, Stanley Pierre-Louis, cited a change in the game development timeline due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, causing companies to have a lack of playable demos. The pandemic also made brands more willing to market using digital events rather than in-person ones.[2][3]
