After two decades of being a big show

The Entertainment Software Association (ESA) has announced that Electronics Entertainment Expo, E3, is now officially dead.

After cancelling the event in 2020, and holding a virtual one in 2021, due to COVID-19 pandemic, and then cancelling the 2022 and 2023 events, it was the time to finally pronounce the E3 show dead. The fact that some major publishers like Sony and Nintendo, as well as Ubisoft, EA, and Bethesda, pulled out of the show to host their own events, were the last nail in the E3 coffin.

With the abrupt cancellation of the event in 2022 and 2023, came the rumors that the E3 was dead, but now, ESA has officially confirmed it on the E3 Twitter account. The E3 was probably one of the world's biggest gaming events for over two decades, but now we get Sony's State of Play, Nintendo's Direct, as well as the Summer Game Fest and The Game Awards, all of which were the part fo the E3 demise.
