E3 Claims AAA Companies Will Attend This Year

E3 2023 is set to kick off this June but it won’t feature some of its biggest players. Nintendo recently confirmed that it will not be attending the show as well as Sony who have stopped going to E3 altogether since 2019. Xbox will also be hosting its own dedicated showcase on 11 June which won’t be a part of the E3 celebrations, though falls around the same timeframe. That said, E3 has now claimed that other AAA companies will attend this year.

E3 organiser ReedPop has provided an update on its plans for this year’s revamped show. Apart from opening industry registration, it stated that “AAA companies, in addition to indie darlings and tech and hardware firms” are committed to “making their return” to the LA Convention Centre. So far, the only AAA company confirmed to attend is Ubisoft but we’ll surely hear about more attendees as the date approaches.

Konami is also rumoured to be attending E3 this year and may have a new Castlevania game to show along with the long-rumoured Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater remake. Apart from that, we know very little about the rest of the lineup beyond speculation. Square Enix could return and reveal a launch trailer for Final Fantasy XVI – which releases a couple of weeks after E3 – and possibly have new information on the highly anticipated Final Fantasy VII Rebirth, the second chapter in the trilogy of Final Fantasy VII remakes.

“The full roster of exhibitors will be announced in the leadup to the expo, providing participating companies the opportunity to make their own individual announcements beforehand,” said the organisers in the statement.

Registrations for E3 2023 industry passes is already open with media applications happening next month. The first two days of E3 (13-14 June) will be reserved for exclusively business while the third day will welcome both consumer and business visitors. The final day will be dedicated to consumers, wrapping up the event on 16 June.

ReedPop added that E3’s “Digital Week” will begin on Sunday, 11 June and feature outside digital events like the PC Gaming Show, Future Games Show, Guerrilla Collective and Black Voices in Gaming.
