E3 2021’s live event has been cancelled, according to paperwork filed by the Board of Los Angeles Convention and Tourism.

Last month, we heard that E3’s organiser the Electonic Software Association (ESA) had plans for a digital-focused show, though a live or hybrid event had not been ruled out.

Now, documentation dug up by ResetEra (thanks, Twinfinite) lists the show as a “cancelled live event”, though with a potential license to return in 2022 and 2023.

The show’s production team may use E3’s home at the Los Angeles Convention Centre and its next-door LA Live area for broadcast, the document concludes.

E3 was last held in 2019, after last year’s event was called off in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic and the disruption it brought. Publishers were left to organise their own digital events online, and reveal events for companies such as PlayStation and Xbox took place across the summer.

This year, the ESA has said it wants to bring some of those disparate events back in-house, and back into a focused week of reveals – though without a physical show to anchor the event, it’s unclear if publishers will jump back on board or continue to do their own thing.

The real-life Chispa, a parrot who lives up to this Spanish word’s meaning in Latin America—spunky and clever—was practicing singing “his song,” a salsa number from Mongo Santamaria. I had modified the actual title, “Bésame […]
