RUMOR: E3 2022 Digital Event a Mess, Probably Cancelled

A few weeks ago, the news broke that E3 2022 was moving to an all digital event as the ESA stated they were concerned for the Omicron strand of COVID-19. Soon after, some reports were coming out that they had abandoned their dates at the Los Angeles Convention Center in early November, long before the new strand was a concern.

Now, a new report has surfaced stating the event has been cancelled all together. In a TikTok video from VentureBeat’s Jeff Grubb, it seems the event is in even more trouble than initially reported.

Grubb stated:

“E3’s been cancelled. Well, physically it’s been cancelled, digitally probably also cancelled.”

Take this report with a grain of salt as nothing has been made official, but Jeff Grubb is one of the industry’s leading reporters right now, so an official announcement may come sooner than later. In its place, Geoff Keighley’s Summer Game Fest will more than likely be the big summer gaming event followed by Gamescom and Opening Night Live, which he also produces and hosts. He saw great success last year with these events as well as the Game Awards, so it is no surprise that these will grow in popularity as well.

Do you think E3 will be cancelled? What do you hope will happen? Let us know in our Discord or Facebook group!
