This year we have to get along without the Electronic Entertainment Expo, short E3, and no, that does not seem to be April Fool. We were able to enjoy the game fair in Los Angeles in Los Angeles in the last year as a digital event from the couch, so this will remain this year. It will not be a live event, nor a digital show 2022. Nevertheless, we do not have to do without the trailer hype, because there will be alternatives.
E3 2022 Neither live, nor digital
It’s about it: The news about the cancellation of the fair we reached us yesterday via Twitter. Will Powers, Pr-Lead at Razer wrote:
Have just received an e-mail… it is officially that the digital E3 was canceled for 2022. Have many mixed feelings…

That 2022 no live event will take place, has already been announced before. Thus, the game fair, as in 2020, will not take place at all. In the year, the Fair Corona fell victim, while at least 2021, as mentioned, at least took place on the monitors. The last live show in Los Angeles is already three years back.
What does this mean for the future of E3? Anyone who is already coming from one end of the E3 is wrong. For now the organizer ESA itself has been expressed and the cancellation confirmed for this year. At the same time, however, was communicated to return 2023 with a “newly lively showcase”, as Ign.com reports. The magazine cites the organizer with the words:
We will use all our energy and resources to offer a revitalized physical and digital E3 experience next summer. […] We look forward to presenting the E3 for fans around the world 2023 live from Los Angeles.
These alternatives expect us 2022
If you are disappointed now because you like the colorful mix of trailers and news likely to live live, there is a good alternative. In June, so even at the same time, as commonly the E3 takes place, the Summer Game is waiting for us again.
We remember: The show presented by Geoff Keighley had last year to offer some highlights, such as the first gameplay to Elden Ring. In addition, the announcement of Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands and other news and trailers came.
We can also expect that many Publishers will raise their own shows to show the latest games. Thus, we certainly do not have to do without exciting digital events in June 2022, even if they are not so concentrated, as is the case on the E3.
