After reports about a possible paywall to some of the content of E3 2021, the Entertainment Software Association (ESA) has confirmed one of the biggest gaming events of the year will be entirely free (via GamesRadar). Rebranded Electronic Entertainment Experience (instead of Expo), E3 2021 will be an all-digital event, set to happen during one full week mid-June. This update was confirmed on E3’s Twitter on Thursday: “E3’s 2021 digital show is a free event for all attendees. We’re excited to fill you in on all the real news for the event very soon.”
In the next couple of months, we’ll get to know more about what’s planned for E3 2021, and how players from all around the world can access its content. So far, E3 2021 is planning its three main days of conferences from June 15 to 17, with the rest of its full week aimed at direct user experience.
For years E3 was the stage for the biggest gaming reveals, giving players the first look at new games and gaming-related technology. Before the pandemic, though, the event lost some of its strength when publishers such as Sony, Activision and EA abandoned the event. A reinvention of E3 was longly due, and it can come in 2021 with the event going all-digital and offering a platform where publishers can reach gamers all around the world.
