For a while there it seemed plausible that the Electronic Entertainment Expo might not return to Los Angeles following this year’s show. However, it seems both the city of Los Angeles and the Entertainment Software Association (ESA) have struck a deal, securing E3 to LA through 2015.
“We are proud to partner with Los Angeles for another three years. The City serves as a strong backdrop for the video game industry’s biggest announcements and we look forward to remaining in LA,” said Michael D. Gallagher, CEO of the ESA, which represents U.S. video game industry. “Video games are a dominant force in the global entertainment marketplace and there is no better place to display that than Los Angeles. We look forward to continuing our relationship with the City and AEG.”
In the same press email announcing the extension of the ESA’s partnership with the city of Los Angeles, dates for next year’s E3 were also announced. E3 2013 will be held from June 11th through June 13th, 2013. Be prepared!
