While we’ve heard rumblings for months that the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) will return in some form following its 2020 meltdown and cancellation, a leak has clarified what the online-only 2021 version could look like—and has prompted its creators to confirm some of the leak’s details.
“E3’s 2021 digital show is a free event for all attendees,” the expo’s official Twitter account posted on Thursday (and apparently not as an April Fool’s prank). “We’re excited to fill you in on all the real news for the event very soon.”
Details about the leaked pitch document, obtained by Video Games Chronicle, were actually reposted by E3’s Twitter account, suggesting they may very well be accurate. VGC reports that this pitch has been handed to game publishers by E3 organizer the Electronic Software Association to excite potential partners about biz-dev minutiae like “B2B, B2M, and B2C objectives”—but also to insist that “E3 2021 is not an in-person event turned virtual.”
