Mega Events Company Won’t Let E3 Die, Promises ‘Return To Form’ In 2023

Like the video game with three endings, or the final boss fight that never ends, E3 refuses to die. Now the video game events world is doubling-down on it. ReedPop—organizers of PAX, New York Comic Con, and Star Wars Celebration—announced Thursday it will take over planning the annual summer gaming showcase, and relaunch it with a “return to form” in 2023. That move raises the stakes of an impending showdown with rival event Summer Game Fest held by Game Awards host Geoff Keighley. E3’s new planners are pitching “exclusive access to the future of gaming” at the overhauled event, and…

Sony’s Skipping Gamescom 2022, So Forget About Any God Of War Ragnarök News

One of the largest video game brands in the world, PlayStation, has confirmed that it will not be a part of the annual Gamescom 2022 trade show, nor will it have any big news or announcements to share during the Opening Night Live event hosted by video game pope, Geoff Keighley. It joins other companies skipping the show this year as the video game industry continues to reckon with the ongoing covid-19 pandemic. Yesterday, Sony quietly confirmed its decision to not attend Gamescom 2022 via a statement given to Games Wirtschaft, a video game news site in Germany. In the…

Where To Watch Summer Game Fest’s Big Opening Event

With E3 2022 canceled, there’s a vacuum at the center of the video game marketing season. Many eyes are on Summer Game Fest for being both the lengthiest and the widest-ranging presser on the horizon. But the host, Geoff Keighley, recently saw fit to temper expectations ahead of the show, saying that it won’t be flush with the “world premieres” for which his events have become known. This post was originally published on June 6, 2022.Now in its third year, Summer Game Fest is both a singular event (a showcase featuring trailers from a wide range of video game publishers)…

E3 Says It’s Coming Back In 2023

The Electronic Entertainment Expo used to be the cornerstone of the video game industry, the week that every publisher, developer and fan had circled in their calendars because it was where the biggest news, reveals and interviews of the year could be had. That was then, though, with “then” being any time from the 1990s through to the mid 2010s. As the last decade wore on, though, publishers worked out they could better manage their news cycles by themselves in their own time, and the popularity of online news showcases increased, meaning E3 became less and less relevant as a…

What To Expect From Summer Game Fest’s Big Not-E3 Event

With E3 2022 canceled, there’s a vacuum at the center of the video game marketing season. Many eyes are on Summer Game Fest for being both the lengthiest and the widest-ranging presser on the horizon. But the host, Geoff Keighley, recently saw fit to temper expectations ahead of the show, saying that it won’t be flush with the “world premieres” for which his events have become known.

Here Are All The Pressers Filling The Vacuum Left By E3’s Shambling Zombie Corpse

E3? More like E0! That’s the sort of total groaner you could expect to hear at an E3 press conference—y’know, if the games industry’s historically biggest marketing event was actually happening in 2022. Yes, for the second time in three years, the Entertainment Software Association (ESA) has called off its flagship event. In 2020, event organizers declined to host an E3, citing the covid-19 pandemic. Last year, it returned, but as a purely digital charade. Rumors around E3 2022’s cancellation swirled as early as January, and the ESA officially called off the event in the spring, saying it would return…

Pour one out for the “world reveals” and “world exclusives.” E3 won’t happen at all this summer, the Entertainment Software Association said in a statement to Kotaku.The news, which was first reported by IGN, confirms what some observers anticipated would happen. For 2022, event organizers with the Entertainment Software Association (ESA) didn’t plan on hosting an in-person event, citing health concerns from the then-nascent omicron variant back in January, though the org’s statement at the time never explicitly stated a digital event would happen this year.“We previously announced that E3 would not be held in person in 2022 due to…

The Biggest Gaming Disappointments Of 2021

Hell-year 2021 is almost over. It’s been a terrible year for more reasons than I can count. Pondering all the bad, disappointing, or just plain sad news that transpired within the video game industry alone is enough to make you want to jump into bed, hide under the covers, and binge on TikTok, candy, and/or Animal Crossing until you pass out. But instead of running and hiding, let’s take a moment to look back at just how awful 2021 really was, examining some of the biggest disappointments, worst trends, and just plain not-great news this monster of a year threw…

Expect “four or five things” on the scale of Elden Ring’s reveal at The Game Awards 2021

The Game Awards 2021 might just be one for the books, per Geoff Keighley’s latest comments. This year’s The Game Awards has a lot to live up to; pervious years and other related events have seen reveals from the likes of Elden Ring and Death Stranding. But can The Game Awards 2021 keep the show’s annual momentum going? Host and organiser Geoff Keighley certainly seems to think so. In a new interview with ForTheWin, Keighley has said there are multiple games as impactful as Elden Ring lined up for this year’s awards show-cum-marketing showcase. “Oh, God, there are probably four…

Here’s 20 Minutes Of Elden Ring Gameplay

At this point—and you’re well within your rights to still have reservations—it’s becoming pretty difficult to refute that Elden Ring…is real? Today, during a digital showcase, publisher Bandai Namco shows off 15 minutes of the next action-adventure game from FromSoftware. (Update, 10:20 a.m. ET: It’s over, and it was actually closer to 20 minutes—you can watch it all below.) Have a look: Yes, yes, Elden Ring, which was first announced at E3 2019, technically showed up earlier this year during Geoff Keighley’s Summer Games Fest. After two years of crickets about the game, FromSoft debuted a three-minute trailer. Any fans…

All-Digital E3 Was A Mess

Another E3 has come and gone. This year’s multi-day commercial for upcoming video games sure…happened. Was it terribly exciting? No, not that we were expecting it to be. Was it downright terrible? Also no. But in failing to find its footing on an all-digital stage, E3 2021 ended up being a showcase for the many different ways that cramming a bunch of announcements into one week doesn’t really make sense anymore. On this week’s Splitscreen, we discuss what went wrong.Ash Parrish, John Walker (Fahey was sick, so we called in his British replacement), and I begin the episode on a…

E3 Twitch Chat Has Been Miserable

For what feels like eons now, the E3 Pangea has threatened to break apart and scatter gaming landmasses to all corners of the Earth. Now that’s finally happening, with this year’s E3 functioning as a loose umbrella for a plethora of publisher-specific shows. This has given companies a massive stage on which to show the world that they have no idea what to do with Twitch chat.
