Electronic Entertainment Expo, also known as E3, held in the United States, is one of the largest video game fairs in the world. This fair, in which many giant companies participated, was eagerly awaited by many fans every year due to the innovations announced in the game world. And in the past hours, gamers got the bad news. This news E3, E3 2022, is completely cancelled.
However, COVID-19, which we have been struggling with in recent years, hit E3 as well as in many places. The fair, which was canceled in 2020, was organized digitally in 2021. It was a question of whether the event would be held this year. In the statements made in the past months, it was stated that the highly anticipated fair will not take place face-to-face this year due to COVID. Now, the news has revealed that the fair will not be held digitally.
E3 2022 Completely Canceled
The news of the cancellation was first shared by Will Powers, who served as the PR leader at tech giant Razer. In the post on Twitter, it was reported that E3 2022 was canceled.
Just got an email… It's official, E3 digital is official cancelled for 2022. Lots of mixed feelings about this…

The Entertainment Software Association issued the following statement on E3 2022:
“E3 will return in 2023 with a reinvigorated showcase that celebrates new and exciting video games and industry innovations.
We previously announced that E3 would not be held in person in 2022 due to the ongoing health risks surrounding COVID-19. Today, we announce that there will also be no digital E3 showcase in 2022.
Instead, we will devote all our energy and resources to delivering a revitalized physical and digital E3 experience next summer. Whether enjoyed from the show floor or your favorite devices, the 2023 showcase will bring the community, media, and industry back together in an all-new format and interactive experience.
We look forward to presenting E3 to fans around the world live from Los Angeles in 2023.
Look for more news and announcements soon.”.
