E3 2022 Will Be an Online Only Event Because of COVID-19

Since its first event was held in 1995, E3 earned a reputation for being the biggest video game news event of the year, home to surprise announcements and shock reveals. E3 was held every year from 1995 to 2020 when its streak was broken by the COVID-19 pandemic. E3 2020 was canceled and then E3 2021 was held as a digital-only event. The plan was to bring E3 back in full force for the 2022 event, but it seems those plans have been derailed.
