ReedPop and the Entertainment Software Association (ESA) has announced E3 2023 has been cancelled. The event which was due take place in Los Angeles from 13th to 16th June would have been the first in person E3 event for 4 years. The cancellation is due to many high profile companies chosing to host their own events.
Kyle Marsden-Kish, Global VP of Gaming for ReedPop issued this statement…
“This was a difficult decision because of all the effort we and our partners put toward making this event happen, but we had to do what’s right for the industry and what’s right for E3.”
“We appreciate and understand that interested companies wouldn’t have playable demos ready and that resourcing challenges made being at E3 this summer an obstacle they couldn’t overcome. For those who did commit to E3 2023, we’re sorry we can’t put on the showcase you deserve and that you’ve come to expect from ReedPop’s event experiences,”
ReedPop and the Entertainment Software Association say they will re-evaluate the future of E3.
