ESA's digital E3 2020 replacement no longer happening


Four sources tell @VIrtualEconCast that despite weeks to pull something together, The ESA will not hold any sort of online E3 event. Instead, the organization will lean on its publisher and developer partners. I'm told an official announcement will likely come early next week.

(My only request is that you follow @VirtualEconCast and give us a listen. I promise we’ll make you laugh and keep you entertained as we teach you a bit about how the game industry works.)

More on the E3 story. The ESA apparently tried a last ditch effort to woo publishers. It apparently pitched them a couple weeks ago and was shot down. The pitch proposed partnering with a variety. of people. But there's something veeeeeery interesting about the pitch.
