Today was the last day of E3 2015, and the ESA, that organize the show every year, sent in a press release to announce the dates of E3 2016. The show will take place between June 14th and June 16th, and will still be at the Los Angeles Convention Center.
ESA CEO Michael D. Gallagher accompanied the press release with a comment:
“More than any other E3, this year was about the gamer. E3 demonstrated both the remarkable transformation of entertainment taking place on all video game platforms—virtual reality, augmented reality, hardware, mobile and handheld—and awesome games.”
“As a driving force for technological and entertainment trends across the globe, the video game industry clearly demonstrated how it is revolutionizing the way people consume, engage and interact with media. Congratulations to our incredibly creative exhibitors, members, partners and the millions of video game consumers who celebrated a spectacular E3 event.”
The announcement also came with some numbers. This years we had 1,600 products from 300 exhibitors. 52,200 attendees walked the show floor, representing 109 countries.
Social media engagement was also record-breaking, with 6.3 million posts on Twitter and 7.5 million likes on Instagram. More than one million E3-related videos were posted to YouTube.
