E3 to return in 2009

Despite vocal disappointment over this year’s E3 from some high profile members of the global industry, the ESA has confirmed to MCV that the show will definitely go ahead again in 2009.

However, the organisation was unable to answer questions on whether the size or location of the show would change.

"As we do every year, we’re beginning the process of surveying exhibitors and attendees to determine potential changes to the Summit," said ESA director of communications Dan Hewitt.

"Once this is completed and shared with the ESA’s Board of Directors, we will make an announcement about the specifics of the 2009 E3 Media & Business Summit, which will occur."

Major execs such as EA CEO John Riccitiello and Ubisoft North America boss Laurent Detoc have hit out at the lack of buzz surrounding this year’s show.

Invites to this year’s E3 were limited to business and press representatives.
