E3 2020 Xbox Xbox One

It's been almost a month since E3 2020 was officially cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic, but at the time, the ESA suggested it was looking into delivering an online event instead. However, in a statement to PC Gamer, an E3 rep has now confirmed a digital event won't take place.

Again, the reason has been credited to the "disruption brought on by the coronavirus pandemic." E3 says it'll be "working with exhibitors to promote and showcase individual company announcements" instead, and notes it's looking forward to delivering a "reimagined" E3 in 2021.

We already know about Xbox's plans in replacement for this year's event, of course. The company stated at the time of its cancellation that despite E3 having always been "an important moment for Team Xbox," the company will instead be holding a digital event in its place to "celebrate the next generation of gaming with the Xbox community".

What do you think next year's "reimagined" E3 will look like? Let us know in the comments.
