E3 2021 recap: the biggest announcements from the biggest companies

This year’s E3 (2021) was a little bit different, and the best is yet to come but here is a recap of the biggest announcements.

Sadly, this year’s E3 wasn’t a massive spectacle like usual as there was no actual, physical, event. The whole thing was hosted online and the entire thing was prerecorded. However, there was some neat announcements. Here is our E3 2021 recap.

A massive change in E3 2021 was witnessed this year, and the event was taken to the digital platform, rather than being hosted live. So, it was pretty flexible in overall outlook because everyone could follow the trailers, and the companies were hosting it with their separate themes. So, the gaming companies announced their dates of presentations, which started in mid-June for three days.

So, today we will be talking about the top 10 companies that participated in E3 2021 and see what the revolution in the gaming industry is at its toes. Here is our E3 2021 recap.
