Video Game Chronicle is reporting that the ESA is preparing to host a digital E3 conference this summer. Normally the event takes place in June and is held in Los Angeles, but with the coronavirus pandemic sadly still widespread, the traditional gaming event clearly won’t be happening this summer. The E3 2021 pitch documents propose that the event this year will be three days of live-streamed coverage from 15th -17th June. However, ultimately the plans still require the approval of the ESA’s membership. We will let you know if it is given the go ahead.
“The ESA’s intention is to hold multiple two-hour keynote sessions from games partners, an awards show, a June 14 preview night and other smaller streams from games publishers, influencers and media partners.
The broadcast event would be supplemented by media previews the week before, as well as demos released on consumer platforms, according to the ESA’s proposal.
The ESA also says it will allow partner companies to remotely stream playable game demos to the media across “thousands” of scheduled meetings, with one-to-one assistance from developers.”
