So far, a lot of what will happen at E3 is still unknown. However, a few publishers have already announced their plans to hold their conferences at E3 or in the periphery of the big event. Additionally, we expect a lot of games to reveal new gameplay or at least trailers after making their debut at earlier events like the VGAs, Sony’s PlayStation State of Play, ID@Xbox, and so on.
E3 2021 is on and though it won’t technically be an in-person, in real life ‘Electronic Entertainment Expo’ like so many years past it has the potential to be the biggest online gaming conference ever. So instead of having to crowd into a hot, humid convention center in LA, we’ll all be able to watch the E3 from the comfort of our homes come this June 12 to June 15.
When is E3 2021?
E3 2021 will take place from Saturday, June 12 to Tuesday, June 15. The online event will consist of several live video conferences and a four-day-long Livestream that will all be accessible to everyone for free. Beyond the official E3 events, Ubisoft and Square Enix among other major video game publishers will be holding their own events throughout the week.
Where is E3 2021?
In case you missed it, E3 didn’t happen in 2020 at all due to the physical show being canceled due to the pandemic last year. This year the gaming event is coming back as a live, online-only event. So you’ll be able to watch Livestreams of all the announcements from YouTube, Twitch, and, of course, on IGN as well.
The ESA has also redeveloped its website into an online portal while beefing up its smartphone app. Both will allow users to visit each exhibitor’s ‘virtual booth.’ Additionally, users can watch streams with an interactive overlay that will include view polls, featured tweets, and other pop-up interactions.
It wouldn’t be an E3 conference without an Xbox keynote and it honestly would be impossible since Microsoft is a major partner of the ESA. So, with that in mind, you should definitely expect to see plenty of new Xbox Series X/S games announced. Of the most anticipated games, we fully expect to see Halo Infinite get an official release date, the latest Forza game, and the first Fable game made without Peter Molyneux behind the wheel.
Microsoft also showed off plenty of indie games coming to the Xbox Series consoles at its last ID@Xbox event. We expect a few of these games, such as Nobody Saves the World and Astria Ascending, will get more stage time during Microsoft’s E3 conference.
Sony has been running its own State of Play events separate from the official E3 conference since 2019 and the company is showing no signs of changing that this year. We expect there will be a packed showing of new games like Lost Judgment. Earlier announced titles like God of War Ragnarok and Horizon Zero Dawn Forbidden West should also be getting their gameplay debuts as well.
