E3 is usually the hottest video game convention of the year, but major developers are bailing on the event this year. First, EA announced that they were ditching E3 in order to host their own event the same week, and soon after, Activision announced that they would be absent from E3 as well. You can now add two more companies to that ever-growing list.
Disney has announced that they’re skipping E3, instead opting to have “additional direct to fan engagements through the summer this year.” At around the same time, World of Tanks publisher Wargaming announced that they too have chosen not to attend E3 this year. The herd keeps getting slimmer.
