They’ve been declaring E3 dead for years. Even before today’s announcement, even before the pandemic, industry vets were questioning the wisdom of packing every member of the press into a sardine can with booming speakers and flashing lights when the information being delivered this way could have easily been done via E-mail. But today they made it official: the Entertainment Software Association publicly stated that there will be no Electronic Entertainment Expo in 2022.
