E3 to Stay in L.A. for Three More Years
There’s been speculation as to whether the gaming industry’s biggest event would remain in Los Angeles, but it looks like the dust has finally settled. Eurogamer reports that next year’s event will officially take place at the L.A. Convention Center and other downtown L.A. locations.
“We are proud to partner with Los Angeles for another three years,” said ESA CEO Michael D. Gallagher. “The city serves as a strong backdrop for the video game industry’s biggest announcements and we look forward to remaining in L.A. 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.”
According to Eurogamer, E3 2012 collected 45,700 people over its three day span, bringing in almost $40 million. Next year’s convention is expected to be even bigger with the promise of a new generation of consoles.
E3 2013 will take place from June 11-13.
