For gaming fans around the world, E3 is considered the hottest media event for the latest updates on new titles and content. But despite efforts to keep the event going digitally, E3 2022 has reportedly been cancelled.
Due to the ongoing world health crisis, the 2020 edition of E3 never took place, but in 2021 it was hosted online by the Entertainment Software Company.
This appeared to be the plan for E3 2022 as plans and rumors claimed it was still moving forward.
Although the event usually takes place in mid-June, it appears mid-summer will be darker than usual as reports now state that E3 2022 has been squeezed.
E3 2022 completely cancelled
In a tweet from Razer PR Lead Will Powers, he told people that an email had been sent out saying the digital portion of E3 was officially cancelled.
I just got an email… It’s official, E3 digital is officially canceled for 2022. Lots of mixed feelings about it…

Earlier on March 10, there were reports from gaming insider Tom Henderson claiming the event would be entirely digital. However, industry insider Jeff Grubb said on Jan. 16 that E3 as a whole had already been cancelled.
Fast forward to March 31st and it appears that the gaming event is all but officially cancelled. A lot of people took to Twitter to “confirm” that E3 will not take place, although apparently there were plans for a digital event.
At the time of writing, ESA has yet to issue an official statement confirming the cancellation of the world’s largest gaming trade show. We will keep you informed as soon as ESA provides more information.
