ESA has reversed its position on holding an online-only 2020 edition of its E3 event. After the physical event got cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic, there was a plan to make a digital-only event but that will no longer happen. ESA is now focusing its attention on bringing a "reimagined" E3 back in June 2021.
Instead, the ESA will simply help showcase "individual company announcements". In other words, as we have already seen announced, publishers are now doing their own thing - or alternatively not doing a thing at all.

"Given the disruption brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic, we will not be presenting an online E3 2020 event in June," an ESA spokesperson said. "Instead, we will be working with exhibitors to promote and showcase individual company announcements, including on www.E3expo.com, in the coming months.
E3 is world's largest video gaming event.
