Niche Gamer’s E3 2021 Schedule

E3 2021

Want to find out all the dates and times of E3 2021? Niche Gamer has got your back with our schedule!

While the pandemic saw to E3 2020 being cancelled twice, the world seems to be dusting itself off and getting back on its feet. Rumors of E3 2021 having paywalled content was quickly denied; though the specter of the leaked planning documents for E3 2020 still haunt the event.

Utilizing influencers, celebrities, “The Power of Social Good”, and the public sneak peak of it being a new and revitalized experience;” that all died out with E3 2020. As E3 2021 is purely digital, the event falls mainly into the hands of the publishers and developers themselves, while the ESA organizes to keep things running smooth.

Despite the fact E3 2021 takes place officially from June 12th to June 15th; there are few eager beavers and fashionably late late-comers looking to stand out.

We will update this article when new events are confirmed, but check out E3 2021 tag for our latest on when to expect the biggest news in gaming.
