SEGA E3 2023

E3 was intended to make its grand return this year with its first in-person event since 2019, but there is reason to wonder if it will still be happening after more publishers such as SEGA are confirming that they won’t be present.

Yesterday, Ubisoft said it would be skipping E3. We also know that Nintendo, PlayStation, and Xbox won’t be involved. As far as SEGA, the company stated: “After careful consideration, we have decided not to participate in E3 2023 as an exhibitor. We look forward to sharing more information on announced and unannounced projects in the future.”
