To E3 2021 And Beyond

12 June, 2021 - 10:14 am by

Since the dawn of time– 1995 to be specific – E3 has been the go-to conference for video game professionals. This is a chance for publishers and developers to show off their latest and greatest works and give gamers a taste of what we’ll be playing in the next 12 months or so. With last year’s conference being cancelled because, well, lockdowns, E3 2021 is back with a bang and will be an all-digital affair.

VGamingNews will bring you all of the gaming goodness, so bookmark this page as it’ll be updated with all the news and conference highlights from the show.
