We still do not know if summer will be able to be lived freely and in complete safety. What is certain, for the video game, is that there will be no shortage of live events from the screens connected to our disposal, E3 included.

ESA announced this Wednesday April 14, 2021 partnering with PC Gamer and GamesRadar, IGN, Future, Polygon, IGN China and Bonfire to improve the door to E3 2021. This one, entirely virtual and followed online, will be held from Saturday June 12 to Tuesday June 15 and will be an integral part of l’IGN Summer of Gaming.
The organizers of the Californian show want the spirit of E3 to continue, as Stanley Pierre-Louis, CEO of ESA explains:
We ensure that E3 continues to be the most innovative and collaborative event in the video game industry. It is therefore essential to engage some of the industry’s largest media partners to help deliver the much-needed news, disclosures and more. Each media partner will play a pivotal role in reaching out to E3 more fans than ever before. With this year’s digital format, we seek to offer our audiences exciting and unique ways to experience the magic of E3.
E3 2021 will be followed for free and will feature events and announcements from Nintendo, Xbox, Capcom, Ubisoft, Take-Two Interactive, Warner Bros. Games and Koch Media. And we can imagine a bunch of surprises for an event that is “more innovative and collaborative” than ever.
Remember that in June another global event will take place during the month of June, the second edition of the Summer Game Fest made in Geoff Keighley. Competition from WORLD PREMIERE could be fierce. Good thing, we want some, Joe.
