After the E3 was completely failed in 2020, the organizer ESA had set at least a digital variant on the next year, which did not arrive as badly at the audience. Who was looking forward to a repetition of the event this year, we have to disappoint now. Because as already evidenced in rumors, there will be no E3 2022. This was confirmed by the organizer now against the media.

The second complete loss within three years should not mean death shock for the struck fair. But on the contrary. The organizer now wools all available and free resources to concentrate on the year 2023 and then connect the digital with the physical form. So the visitors should come full on their costs and at the same time the viewers should be able to participate in a digital form.
