E3 2022 Cancelled- Is this a bad sign for future E3 events?

As many people know the upcoming E3 event that was scheduled to take place this upcoming summer in June 2022 has officially been cancelled. There were many people who were shocked by the news regarding the cancellation of the E3 event and there were some who were not too surprised by the announcement. As many people COVID-19 has negatively impacted many lives and events around the world since 2020. Despite, the fact that COVID-19 pandemic has seemingly improved within the past two years it seems like new variants of the virus seemingly emerge out of nowhere and the same thing is true in the year 2022. It has recently been discovered that the Omicron BA.2 sub-variant has been spreading rapidly throughout America which is the reason why there will be no physical presentation of the E3 2022 event this year. However, it was also announced that there would also be no digital presentation for E3 2022 either which many people also found somewhat baffling as well. But then again when if you looked at the lineup for the E3 2022 show in terms of what games were expected to appear there was not much to be excited about anyways. In fact, its already been confirmed by Nintendo that The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2 is going to be released next year in ’23 even though it was originally set to come out 2022. Also, there were a lot of people who had high hopes for a potential reveal trailer for Elder Scrolls 6 but realistically speaking it was unlikely to happen at this years E3 2022 event. Despite, E3 2022 being cancelled it has been confirmed that there will be an E3 event next year which hopefully does not get cancelled. This year will mark the second E3 that has been cancelled due to the dangers of the COVID-19 pandemic and it does not look like things will be getting better any time soon. Also, its known fact that last year’s E3 2021 event was considered to be underwhelming by many critics and seeing that games like Metroid Prime 4 and Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2 was not going to be at this year’s event; there is really no point on having a lackluster gaming presentation physical or digital without having titles people have been dying to see for years.
