Following on from IGN announcing its own 'Summer of Gaming' event yesterday, the Entertainment Software Association (ESA) has locked in the dates for its next E3 conference.

With this year's E3 officially cancelled, the next "reimagined" version of it will be taking place between 15th - 17th June 2021. No other details about it have been shared at this point in time.

Although the ESA said it was "exploring options with members" to coordinate an online experience this year, it's rumoured publishers have declined the offer. IGN has also managed to secure the following partners for its own digital event so far, which will take place in June:

2K, Square Enix, SEGA, Bandai Namco, Amazon, Google Stadia, Twitter, Devolver Digital, THQ Nordic
