The Entertainment Software Association, ESA, issued an update on E3 2022, indicating that it will be a digital-only event once again.
Given how deadly the coronavirus epidemic is, the announcement comes as no surprise. However, certain events, such as CES 2022, have decided to have an in-person event despite the Omicron variation, which has recently led to an increase in instances.

Due to the ongoing health risks surrounding COVID-19 and its potential impact on the safety of exhibitors and attendees, E3 will not be held in person in 2022. We are nonetheless excited about the future of E3 and look forward to announcing more details soon.
When the epidemic initially broke out in 2020, E3 was completely canceled. The ESA then gave the online-only experience a try in 2021. Nintendo was officially a part of the program, but it was really business as usual, as the firm merely broadcasted its regular Nintendo Direct – an internet presentation that had begun broadcasting several years before the outbreak.
In terms of E3 2022, we’re still waiting for further details, including the exact date of the event.
