E3 E3 2021 E3 2021 Publishers E3 2021 Show ESA PS4 PS5

E3 2021 Digital Show Confirmed With Xbox, Capcom, Ubisoft, WB Games, 2K, And More To Take Part, Sony Not Showing Up


E3 2021 has now been confirmed as a free digital show running from June 12 to June 15 and will feature a number of publishers. But, Sony once again will not show up for the third year in a row.

The confirmed publishers and developers for the event include Nintendo, Xbox, Capcom, Konami, Ubisoft, Take-Two Interactive, WB Games, and Koch Media. The ESA will also be working with media to amplify the content, which might suggest that media-only days will return, alongside individual publication showcases of games.

This confirms reports from last week that the show would be digital-only. That report mentioned the possibility of streaming players streaming game demos, but VGC has confirmed with the ESA that these will not be available.

Overall, this is a solid lineup of publishers attending the event, but the absence of Sony will be felt yet again and begs the question “what are they planning for the Summer?” Personally, we think we will see another large PS5 showcase in June, showcasing the new console’s upcoming lineup of games. SEGA, Bandai Namco, EA, and Activision Blizzard are also not attending.
