E3 2022 will be Online-Only as COVID-19 Surges once again


It’s a familiar tune that has carried on during the pandemic, COVID-19 is surging once again, and now big events are either being postponed or having to take place Online Only, that is what the Electronic Entertainment Expo is experiencing first hand once again.

It was first reported by VentureBeat that the Electronic Software Association was planning to shift it to an online-only event due to the concerns that revolved around the pandemic, this happened last April but the only difference this time was that the decision was made earlier in advance. Then there was the time that the ESA decided to cancel the event entirely in 2020.


Due to the ongoing health risks surrounding COVID-19 and its potential impact on the safety of exhibitors and attendees, E3 will not be held in person in 2022, We remain incredibly excited about the future of E3 and look forward to announcing more details soon.”
