It may be well over a year since the coronavirus pandemic took a foothold across the globe. Some countries are still reeling from the after-effects of the pandemic. Reopening of events and outdoor activities in most countries has been a slow affair. The annual Electronic Entertainment Expo event, also short for E3, is the latest to announce that it will be hosted in an entirely virtual affair for 2021. The E3 2021 is set to be its first-ever fully online affair and the E3 app will be available for smartphone devices. It will be the key between connecting the developers and the audiences in this annual spectacle.

It is created by a collaboration of Game Cloud Network, HCL Technologies, and Revyrie Inc. As per the announcement, access to the public will be able from June 12th, 2021, which is also the first day of the event. Journalists and other media houses will have access to the portal 5 days in advance, starting from June 7th.
