According to information from VentureBeat, E3 2022 will once again be 100% online due to the new Covid-19 variant, Omicron. In 2020, E3 was canceled and in 2021 we had our first digital edition, which had several panels and days of digital-only broadcasting. E3 2022 was planned to return to the traditional model, but it was changed due to the problems of the pandemic.
ESA, the company hosting the event, responded on the GamesBeat website: “Due to the ongoing health risks surrounding Covid-19 and its impact on the safety of exhibitors and attendees, E3 will not be held in person in 2022.” From VentureBeat Games).

While it’s bad news for many who have worked on the return of traditional presentations, the move to digital is nothing new, as E3 2021 has followed that model. However, many fans considered this year’s weakest version to be one of the most deranged and weakest ever.
However, the precaution is fair, as the new alternative to Covid-19, Omicron, is spreading very quickly across the world and many events are changing their agendas. Recently, several conferences have been changed at CES 2022, although the event has not been canceled in person.
E3 2022 is supposed to take place in June, the traditional month in which the event is held annually.
