E3 2021 Details Begin to Emerge in the Wake of Digital Paywall Fears

E3 2021 Details Begin to Emerge in the Wake of Digital Paywall Fears

The ESA has responded, via tweet (Shown below), to a report from Video Games Chronicle claiming that elements of the digital portion of this year's E3 event could be behind a paywall. The company, which has organised E3 since its launch in 1995, confirmed that the E3 digital show will feature no paywall and will be a "free event for all attendees".

 The tweet also confirms that more "real" news for the event will be coming soon. 

Weighing in on the reports from Video Games Chronicle, Geoff Keighley, journalist, presenter and major figure in the games industry, tweeted that this year's Summer Games Fest would be "Free To Play".

Keighley filled the gap left by E3's cancellation in 2020 with the Summer Games Fest, a series of discrete game announcements and event spanning a four-month period. This event will be returning in 2021, albeit in a condensed one-month window.  

More news regarding E3 2021 and Summer Games Fest 2021 is expected in the near future.
