It's been a little over a week since we caught wind that E3 2022's in-person event has been axed. It wasn't a huge surprise given E3's waning popularity, and the ever-present COVID-19 pandemic, of course. Things might be getting worse yet, though.
According to VentureBeat journalist Jeff Grubb, E3's digital event may also be cancelled. In a recent TikTok clip, which was then uploaded to YouTube, Grubb had this to say about the industry event:
"E3's been cancelled. Well, physically it's been cancelled, digitally probably also cancelled."
There's a probably in there, so this shouldn't be taken as gospel just yet. However, we're inclined to believe it, given Grubb's track record, and the fact that E3 seems on real shaky ground right now.
In E3's absence, Geoff Keighley's Summer Game Fest will likely take hold, even if that's more of a collection of third party conferences that Keighley places under one banner, than a scheduled event.
Do you think E3 will still be around by say, 2025? Let us know in the comments.
