Once developers learned they can demonstrate their videogames independently in a matter of a few minutes as well as relatively lower cost, E3 has indeed been losing its luster. Several companies have determined that E3’s demise would come sooner than expected, despite getting considerable traction from a handful of companies. For perhaps the unprecedented occasion in its long existence, this year’s program seems to have been axed off its calendar entirely.
Will Powers, the ESA’s Publicity director, broke the word that digital E3 2022’s gaming conference had been scrapped completely. A novel variant of Covid-19 had caused the ESRB to certify that E3 will take place online, but it presently seems that the organizers have completely scrapped their preparations for the convention.
However, it probably all boils down to how long before the organizers make a formal pronouncement on this subject.

What Were The Tweets?
Companies may have pulled out of 2022’s E3 because of the event’s waning popularity—but a single individual may be more than partly accountable. To hint that his program could have snagged many companies from E3, Geoff Keighley tweeted an emoticon of a smiling eye right after Will spilled the beans surrounding the cancellation.
Just got an email… It's official, E3 digital is official cancelled for 2022. Lots of mixed feelings about this…

With presentations like Summer Games Fest, as well as The Game Awards, Geoff Keighley has been achieving what E3 had not been able to achieve in the previous several years notwithstanding his passion for Copyrights. Keighley’s share price has climbed so significantly since the latest souls-borne game was unveiled at Summer Games Festival in 2021.
It’s likely that companies that normally participate in E3 have decided to attend Keighley’s presentation alternatively, given that the exhibition is taking place this year as well. E3’s discontinuation this year may signal the beginning of the goodbye for the convention.
