Gaming Show E3 2022 goes online again due to coronavirus

The Entertainment Software Association (ESA) has announced that Electronics Entertainment Expo (E3) will be virtualized again in 2022. This decision is being driven by the growing number of infections with the new strain of coronavirus called Omicron.

Interestingly, ESA has not yet announced the date for E3 2022. Usually the association announced the next event at the end of the current one. Sources say ESA may have made the decision to keep E3 online before the current coronavirus outbreak and possibly last year.

If E3 2022 takes place as an online event, it will be the second such event since the first exhibition in 1995. Over the years, E3 was not completely canceled until 2020 when the COVID-19 epidemic was declared a pandemic.

Another major event for the gaming industry, the Game Developers Conference (GDC), is scheduled from March 21st to March 25th. The GDC organizers have officially confirmed that they want to continue holding the conference in the usual offline format.
