The Electronic Entertainment Expo in Los Angeles is the biggest gaming convention of the year. Oculus has been in attendance since 2014 but for the first time since then, the company won’t have a booth at E3. The Oculus E3 2017 attendance is not happening, the Facebook-owned company has officially confirmed. It has decided to not install a booth at this year’s gaming convention.
Oculus isn’t the only big name that has decided to skip E3 2017. Even EA is not going to be making an appearance at the gaming convention in Los Angeles this June.
The company had a very interesting booth at the convention last year. It spanned multiple levels, had shiny glass showrooms and provided visitors with ample opportunities to play with the Oculus Rift and the Oculus Touch controllers.
Come to think of it, Oculus skipping E3 2017 does make sense, given that there’s no new hardware on the horizon that it needs to push aggressively. Even Oculus co-founder Palmer Luckey, who was a big deal at the booth last year, is no longer with the company and would obviously have not made an appearance if Oculus had decided to install a booth.
This doesn’t mean that Oculus won’t have any announcements to make at all this year. The company’s representatives say that even though Oculus won’t be making an appearance at E3 2017, the company will make quite a few announcements concerning games and features in the months to come.
