Even Ubisoft is forfeiting E3 2023, withdrawing its participation and instead preparing a parallel event.
The stage of the Electronic Entertainment Expo, once coveted by the biggest producers of the most loved video games (many of which you can also find on Amazon), is now definitely a shadow of what it was.
And to think that Ubisoft was among the companies that, on the other hand, had made it known very clearly that it would participate in E3 2023. While not expressing any doubts, of course.
So much so that the organization of the fair had gone on its way noting that the Los Angeles fair will take place, despite everything.
Even if, today, he has to give up one of the last most important players in the sector who had decided to participate in E3 2023.
As reported by VGC exclusively, in fact, Ubisoft has decided that his summer will no longer cross with that of E3.
“E3 has fostered unforgettable moments across the industry over the years,” a company spokesperson told VGC, continuing:
“While we originally intended to have an official presence at E3, we have since made the decision to move in a different direction and will be holding a Ubisoft Forward Live event on June 12 in Los Angeles. We look forward to sharing more details with our players soon.”
ReedPop, the company that organizes E3 2023, hasn’t yet officially responded to Ubisoft’s communication but, at this point, it’s just a formality. p>
The Electronic Entertainment Expo will return for June 13-16 and will feature separate areas and days for industry and consumer events.
The E3 Business Days will take place June 13-15 and will be limited to registered industry members for networking, meetups and more. The media will also be allowed to touch the upcoming games in dedicated spaces, reserved for insiders.
The E3 Gamer Days – that is, the part of the event open to the public – will finally take place on June 15 and 16 in a separate room from the area linked to the ‘industry.
But neither Xbox nor Nintendo will participate in the fair, with only Konami which, in a twist, is currently one of the last large companies that can promise something.
