E3E3 2021 will not be held in the form of a live event. What was rather predictable due to the organizational complications dictated by the pandemic, found confirmation in a document published from Los Angeles Convention and Tourism Development Commission.

The document states that the live event, scheduled to begin on June 15, has been canceled and that currently ESA (organizer of the event) is working with the commission on various solutions to produce an exclusively online event.

The rumors about a possible E3 2021 online-only had already emerged in recent days and, despite the absence of official confirmation from ESA itself, it seems that this will be the formula chosen by the event for 2021, with a three-day demo and live broadcasts scheduled between 15 and 17 June.
