ESA Says Next E3 May Not be in Los Angeles
We’ve known for a while that the ESA has some issues with the proposed stadium construction at the LA Convention Center. Last year, the organization declined to renew its contact for E3 until they received some assurances about the upcoming changes. We expected to hear that these had been resolved, but it looks like those assurances are still not forthcoming.
Michael Gallagher, president of the ESA, said this Sunday night in an interview, “We’re still in discussions with the city of Los Angeles, but we have a number of issues that still need to be resolved. If we can’t resolve them, we are preparing to go elsewhere.”
No firm decision on where “elsewhere” might be, although Gallagher did mention San Francisco, New York, Chicago and New Orleans as possible replacements. I’m sure we’ll hear more on this as the week goes on.
