E3 is officially over forever

The Electronic Entertainment Expo, better known as E3, the long-running annual gaming show that brought together the world's game publishers, retailers and press to Los Angeles, is dead.

While the video game industry had already largely given up on E3 - once the largest video game trade show in the industry and the biggest video game showcase event of the year - there was always the chance it would return after multiple years of cancellations. However, in a statement to The Washington Post today, E3's organizer confirmed that the show is permanently canceled.

"We know it's difficult to say goodbye to such a beloved event, but it's the right thing to do given the new opportunities our industry has to reach fans and partners," Stanley Pierre-Louis, the CEO of the Entertainment Software Association, the nonprofit trade organization that ran E3, told the Post.

The decision isn't surprising. The last E3 was held in 2019. A year later, the annual trade show was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Since then, efforts to bring back the show as a physical event have sputtered out. In March, it looked like E3 might truly be dead after the ESA canceled the event for 2023, citing lack of "sustained interest." This came after numerous high-profile video game companies, including Nintendo, Sony, and Microsoft, decided to bail on the trade show.
