After missing out last year, E3 has confirmed it is planning to make a comeback in 2021.

The Official Electronic Entertainment Expo revealed the news to fans on Twitter, stating it has "been hard at work on this year’s event" and will reveal more information about the full picture at a later date.

A report from Video Games Chronicle, however, has seemingly spilled the beans on what the event may entail. The publication has reportedly seen documents handed to publishers, in which The Entertainment Software Association (ESA) has proposed three days of live streamed coverage, running between 10am EST - 10pm EST. The ESA is reportedly seeking a six figure sum from publishers to secure a slot during the dates.

The pencilled dates run between June 15-17, with a preview night running on June 14. There are even plans for media previews to take place the week prior and digital demos to be put forward to the general public.

Last year saw E3 replaced with Summer Game Fest, hosted by industry presenter Geoff Keighley. According to VGC, Keighley plans to continue with the same style of setup for this year. It'll be interesting to see how the two events coincide, and which of them publishers will choose to be their platform for making announcements.

Are you excited at the prospect of E3 returning? Let us know in the comments below.
