E3 2021 plans announced: Xbox and Nintendo to participate, Sony still to confirm

Nintendo, Xbox, Capcom, Konami, Ubisoft, Take-Two, Warner Bros and Koch Media confirmed.

The Electronic Software Association has announced plans for the first digital-only E3, which will include the industry’s big players but currently excludes Sony. E3 2021, to be held June 12-15, will feature Nintendo, Xbox, Capcom, Konami, Ubisoft, Take-Two Interactive, Warner Bros. Games and Koch Media.

Sony is conspicuous by its absence from that list, and other major companies missing are EA (which has lately preferred to host its own EA Play events during E3), Square Enix, Sega, Bandai Namco, Tencent, 505 and Activision Blizzard.

The broadcast will take place on the official E3 website www.e3expo.com

The ESA clarifies that the list of partners marks “early commitments,” so other publishers and developers could join at a later date. However, prior to the pandemic cancellation of the show, Sony had confirmed that it had no plans to attend E3 2020.

In 2020 E3 was cancelled due to the Covid -19 pandemic so this year’s version will be the first to be streamed.

After announcing that the show would return to being a digital-only event, the E3 website promises “live press conferences and a four-day video stream,” and claims that the show will be “a reimagined, hyper-intelligent digital experience.”

Specific details about the show remain scarce

“We’re evolving this year’s E3 into a more inclusive event, but we’ll continue to try to excite fans with great reveals and insider opportunities that make this event the indispensable hub of video games.”

says el presidente de la ESA, Stanley Pierre-Louis

What is known for sure is that the event will be completely free. Following earlier reports that parts of E3 2021 could be put behind paywalls, ESA has told IGN that “the E3 2021 digital show is a free event for all attendees.”
