The E3 gaming show, which was once the largest event in the gaming industry, has been permanently cancelled. The organisers released a statement saying that after over two decades of E3, it was time to bid farewell. The 2023 expo had already been cancelled due to a lack of relevance, according to analysts. The Entertainment Software Association (ESA), which ran E3, confirmed that the event will not be held in the future. E3, which stands for Electronic Entertainment Expo, was last held virtually in 2021 and its last in-person event was in 2019. Twitch streamer Hollie Bennett expressed sadness at the decline of E3 and its impact on the industry. E3 was once the main showcase for new games and technology, but as big players started hosting their own events, it lost its relevance and struggled to attract exclusive announcements. The pandemic also forced a pause in E3. The cancellation of E3 is seen as a significant moment for the gaming sector, with companies now preferring to run their own events to reach their audience more effectively.
