The Entertainment Software Association, proprietors of E3, have kissed and made up with Los Angeles, it seems. Usually, the ESA announces their plans for next year’s E3 following the current year’s conference, but rumors were abuzz last month when the only word on future E3 was “coming soon,” with solid speculation being made about Los Angeles’ construction of Farmer’s Field stadium and inability to accomodate the conference properly.
Apparently the mayor of LA realized that skimping out on a cool $40 million in revenue isn’t such a good idea, though, and he personally oversaw the negotiations made in which he promised that all parties worked together to make sure every need was met. As such? You can look forward to E3 from June 11th to the 13th, 2013.
If that weren’t enough, that means there’s no chance of the show leaving the city until 2015, which is an awful long time. I wouldn’t expect it to come to Detroit or anything, but somewhere commutable would be a nice change.
