Sega and Tencent have confirmed that they will not participate in the Los Angeles 2023 edition of E3.
Both Asian companies are the next two cases, which were added to the one announced by Ubisoft a few hours ago. Other large companies in the field, such as Microsoft, Sony or Nintendo, had previously made it clear that they were not participating in the plans of E3.
In a statement to IGN, Sega explained that “with careful consideration we have decided to participate in E3 2023 as an exhibitor. We will share more about the announced and announced projects in the future.”
Tencent, for its part, has confirmed that Level Infinite, its publishing title, will not participate in the fair.
Devolver Digital, which always had sides in the lot next to the Los Angeles Convention Center during the days of E3, stated that “although we always support the success of any industry gathering that promotes great games, we have never officially been to E3. and we do not plan to do this year or this, we also confirm We will not be having a satellite event this year in Los Angeles, but we will be happy to return to our favorite parking lot if the opportunity arises for a future event at LACC.We are also happy to announce our annual Devolver Direct, scheduled for June.
According to a source at IGN, after Ubisoft’s scare, “There’s no way this event can go ahead.” At the moment, neither ESA nor ReedPop (the company in charge of organizing E3 2023) has issued a statement, but there is a common sense in the industry that the event may announce its cancellation in the coming days or weeks.
It's often tough to separate the facts from the conjecture on E3, but unsurprisingly I'm really not hearing good things. Would not be surprised at all if it's called off this week – but I hope it isn't. I feel so sorry for those behind it who did everything asked of them
