E3 will return this year as a virtual event. The event is normally held in Los Angeles each June and is acknowledged as the biggest spectacle of the year for the video games sector attracting a mix of developers, press and the general public.

Organisers announced that the 2021 virtual line-up includes companies such as Nintendo, Microsoft, Capcom, Konami, Ubisoft, Take-Two Interactive, and Warner Bros Games.
Noticeable absentees from the list currently include Sony, Activision-Blizzard, EA, Sega, Bandai and Square Enix.
