The Electronic Entertainment Expo, known as E3, is one of the most anticipated gaming events of 2021. Here's a full breakdown of the schedule, dates and conferences.

E3 2021 when dates

E3 is back for 2021! The long-awaited gaming event returns in 2021 after its cancellation in 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The event has always been a massive date for both users and gaming companies since it's the time of year when the biggest industry announcements are made. Eager fans get hyped, surprised, and thrilled watching what new games are being developed. The event's cancellation in 2020 gave space for other events to emerge, such as the Summer Game Fest and the IGN Summer of Gaming. However, this year, E3 is back with a virtual edition, featuring companies like Xbox, Nintendo and Capcom among many others.
