In its official confirmation, the ESA didn’t offer a reason for the digital element’s cancellation. While E3’s physical event was canceled in 2021, it did take place digitally online. The E3 2022 physical element was already canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Here’s the official statement from The ESA.

E3 will return in 2023 with a reinvigorated showcase that celebrates new and exciting video games and industry innovations.

We previously announced that E3 would not be held in person in 2022 due to the ongoing health risks surrounding COVID-19. Today, we announce that there will also be no digital E3 showcase in 2022.

Instead, we will devote all our energy and resources to delivering a revitalized physical and digital E3 experience next summer. Whether enjoyed from the show floor or your favorite devices, the 2023 showcase will bring the community, media, and industry back together in an all-new format and interactive experience.

We look forward to presenting E3 to fans around the world live from Los Angeles in 2023.

While E3 2022 is canceled, other events are planned for this summer. The Summer Game Fest will be held in June 2022. As usual, that is an online event. Gamescom will return both digitally and physically in August 2022.

E3 2023 will be held digitally and physically, though there are no dates for it yet.
