The in-person event for E3 was already cancelled a while back for 2022. The potential was still lingering in the air that a digital event would be held again, as it was in 2021. Thankfully, someone opened up a window and that lingering rumor finally dissipated.

E3 2022 is cancelled in every regard. There is no in-person event. There is no digital event. It's done. It's gone. It's outta here. Goodbye, E3.

The news about E3 2022's cancellation came first from a tweet sent out by Razer PR lead Will Powers. Powers said he received an email announcing the cancellation of a digital E3 event.

The reveal from Powers was later confirmed with an official statement by the ESA, the group in charge of E3. They say that while 2022's event has been fully cancelled, they will return in 2023.

"We will devote all our energy and resources to delivering a revitalized physical and digital E3 experience next summer. Whether enjoyed from the show floor or your favorite devices, the 2023 showcase will bring the community, media, and industry back together in an all-new format and interactive experience.

"We look forward to presenting E3 to fans around the world live from Los Angeles in 2023."
In recent years, several big players have pulled out of E3 to host their own events. These companies include major players like Sony and Nintendo. Honestly, E3 just hasn't been the same without all of these companies having pre-E3 showcases like they used to in years long since passed.

If nothing else, we all still have the Summer Game Fest to look forward to. Right? Right, everyone? Yeah? Summer Game Fest? ... Please be excited.
