E3 2021 live event to be cancelled

Documents for an upcoming meeting of the Los Angeles Convention and Tourism Development Board was released and the  E3 event was included in the list as a “Cancelled live event in 2021”.
The Electronic Entertainment Expo 2021 will be the 26th Electronic Entertainment Expo, in which hardware manufacturers, software developers, and publishers from the video game industry will present new and upcoming products to the audience.

It was mentioned as a cancelled event in the agenda of LA City notes. While the agenda doesn’t confirm exactly why the event is cancelled, it’s almost certainly due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

E3 2020 event was cancelled last year due to the Global Covid-19 pandemic, and while the ESA looked for ways to replace it with an “online event”, in the end nothing came out of it. Earlier this year the ESA said that, “we are transforming the E3 experience for 2021 and will soon share exact details on how we’re bringing the global video game communiy together” and the above document also contains the note, “Working with production team on broadcast options at LA Live/LACC”. It’s certainly possible to expect this year’s E3 as an “Online event” . Before the pandemic,  Sony had left the responsibility of hosting events E3 .
The Convention and Tourism Development Board document notes stated that they are, “Working on 2022 and 2023 license”, but there’s a chance that if things don’t come together this year , we won’t be able to see E3 as a LAN event.
