SEGA and Level Infinite Will Also Not Attend E3 2023

According to a recent report by IGN, SEGA and Tencent subsidiary Level Infinite have announced they will not be attending E3 2023. Additionally, according to the outlet, Bandai Namco did not confirm its attendance status but confirmed it will attend the media-only Play Days event along with Level Infinite. Devolver Digital also confirmed it would not attend the event this year but is “well underway” with its Devolver Direct event, which is also scheduled for June. Lastly, IGN also claims that more publishers plan to skip the upcoming event but have yet to make an announcement.  SEGA and Level Infinite join the list of publishers who have officially pulled out of the upcoming convention alongside Nintendo and Ubisoft. In September, The Entertainment Software Association announced that E3 2023 will run from June 13 to 16 at the Los Angeles Convention Center and will be run by RedPop.

SEGA’s official announcement via IGN:

“After careful consideration, we have decided not to participate in E3 2023 as an exhibitor. We look forward to sharing more information on announced and unannounced projects in the future.” 


ReedPop VP of Gaming Kyle Marsden-Kish commented on the upcoming event, saying:

“E3 is one of the global gaming industry’s few opportunities to come together, unite as one loud voice, and show the world what it is creating. Our vision is to reunite the industry by re-establishing the traditional E3 week, bring back that spark, and restore E3’s role as a truly magical global showcase event for game creators and consumers.”

ReedPop’s head of games B2B Christopher Dring:

“The important thing from my perspective is what the show is doing to embrace the entire ‘E3 week’. If I could plan the perfect E3, everything would take place in one space over five days. And there would be no need to book hotel rooms over the weekend, or having to continually jump in and out of buildings. But that’s not the reality. Some games companies want to showcase in different spaces and at different times. And that’s absolutely their right.

E3 will officially partner with as many of these other events as will have it, and for free. But even those who aren’t joining officially, it will still support the games and companies within those shows.”
