The return of the live show E3 2023 was planned as a triumph, and the organizers promised a lot of announcements and the participation of the largest gaming companies. However, a long break, during which the industry leaders were forced to look for other ways to present their projects, might jeopardize the very significance of the exhibition. According to IGNcompanies Sega and Tencent
Journalists IGN spoke with a large number of representatives of publishers and advertising companies, all of whom expressed concerns about the future for E3. As it turned out, no one has yet received precise information about what exactly is planned. Therefore, corporations cannot decide on the subject of participation budgets and the necessity to prepare stands.
Microsoft and Nintendo have already stated that they will not be able to participate in E3, and this was announced by Ubisoft yesterday. Sony has yet to reveal its intentions officially, although a number of sources claim that the event will not be included in the company's plans.
Bandai Namco is planning a return to Los Angeles for Play Days. Keely, who has never officially participated in E3, has yet to make a final decision on the subject. Return Digital, which has organized a presentation in the nearest parking lot for several years, is planning another Return Direct.
The organizers themselves ESA and ReedPopdid have not responded to a request for comments. So far, they haven't announced their intentions.
