In just over a month, E3 2021 will make its comeback. On the program: a whole bunch of announcements and conferences from most of the editors and builders who responded. Unfortunately, the event recently lost one of its attendees.
Three won… one lost. After a year of absence, E3 will make its comeback in June 2021 in a digital format adapted to current health conditions. And the good news is that after a few weeks of uncertainty, many major publishers and manufacturers in the industry have formalized their presence at the event. Recently, there are also three other names (Activision, Bandai Namco and Sega) which formalized their participation. Unfortunately, we recently learned that Konami, which was one of the first to be announced, will ultimately not be in the game. Here is the statement shared by the publisher on Twitter:
“Due to the timing, we won’t be ready to be at E3 this year. We do want to reassure our fans, however, that we are on the development of a number of key projects, so stay tuned for more information in the months to come. Although we are not participating this year, we have a lot of respect for ESA and we know that E3 2021 will be a big success. We will continue to support ESA and we wish all the participants of this year’s show the best. “
The company is therefore faced with a scheduling problem, and therefore believes that it will not be able to prepare its conference for next month as planned. However, Konami explains having many projects in development. It is therefore It is not impossible that a dedicated digital event or that a speech will be organized later and independently. But while waiting to find out, remember that E3 2021 will take place from June 12 to 15 and that for three days, press conferences, special events and exclusive content will be presented by all the participants. To wait until then, you can always take advantage ofa reduction on a PSN card worth 50 € thanks to Eneba.
