E3 2021: Sony PlayStation absent while Xbox, Nintendo, and Take Two will be present

E3 2021

Sony PlayStation will not be present at E3 2021, the new digital event scheduled for this year, as well as other companies while Xbox and Nintendo, as well as other publishers, will instead be present in the streaming conference.

Particularly interesting is also the presence of Take Two among the labels that have decided to support E3 2021, which we remember will be a free digital show, as recently confirmed by ESA itself, and this represents a significant novelty considering that the company of Rockstar Games and 2K usually tends to avoid the summer fair par excellence.

Among the companies that have confirmed their presence during E3 2021 are Nintendo, Xbox, Capcom, Konami, Ubisoft, Take-Two , Warner Bros and Koch Media, which already represent a remarkable line-up, considering that it includes two main producers such as Microsoft and Nintendo, the latter in particular rather surprising considering its effective choice. for some time now to prefer its independent Direct.

E3 2021 will be held from 12 to 15 June 2021 entirely online and in streaming, through a series of presentations and panels that can be followed live and free of charge by all. Considering that this is an exclusively online event, the presentations are likely to be more concentrated, with a lineup that could be particularly interesting.

Among those who will not be present at E3 2021, besides Sony, there are also EA, Activision Blizzard, Sega, Bandai Namco and Square Enix among the most illustrious absentees. Probably each of these will opt for their own independent presentations, which at least some of the companies present at the event will probably do, so the quantity and relevance of the presentations at E3 will remain to be seen but there is no doubt that there is a good amount of important names .

The Entertainment Software Association (ESA) has confirmed its plans for this year’s E3. After canceling last year's event due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the ESA is bringing back E3 as an all-digital show that will be completely free to virtually attend. It will take place between June 12th and 15th.


Nintendo and Xbox are among the big names who’ll be part of E3, along with Capcom, Konami, Ubisoft, Take-Two Interactive, Warner Bros. Games and Koch Media. The ESA says there will be more additions to that lineup, but as it stands, the notable omissions include Sony, EA, Activision Blizzard, Square Enix, Sega and Bandai Namco. Sony skipped E3 2019 and was going to do the same last year, so it wouldn’t be surprising for the company to forego this year’s edition as well.

There has been lots of discussion about the future of E3 over the last year or so, and whether the event still has a viable place in the industry. In the absence of E3 2020, many developers and publishers ran their own digital showcases and others got some shine from the likes of Summer Game Fest. However, the ESA is planning to hold E3 2022 as an in-person event, so it’s clearly confident that the trade show will remain a fixture of the gaming calendar.
