For the third year in a row, the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted E3. The event will again be an online-only affair amid the Omicron surge.
“Due to the ongoing health risks associated with COVID-19 and the potential impact on the safety of exhibitors and attendees, E3 2022 will not be held in person,” said the Entertainment Software Association GamesBeat. “We are still excited about the future of E3 and look forward to announcing further details soon.”
ESA canceled the 2020 edition of E3 shortly after the pandemic broke out in the US. A virtual version of the event took place last year.
Earlier this week, the Sundance Film Festival thwarted plans for a hybrid format by putting the entire event online for the second year in a row. The Grammy Awards, which should also take place this month, have been postponed indefinitely. Although CES is taking place in Las Vegas this week with a personal component, the CSA has decided to end the show a day early.
