The event debuted as Game Stars Live last year and was due to take place alongside the European Games Network as part of trade body ELSPA’s attempt to build an international public and trade showcase based in the UK.

But it had been hindered by lack of support from Sony, which prefers to run its own PlayStation format events. Microsoft, meanwhile, recently announced Xbox support for a new event called State of Play (MCV 11/3) and Electronic Arts refused to match the £1m spent at ExCeL last year.

For a full analysis, plus an exclusive update on the future of EGN, read the print edition of MCV on Friday morning.
