Looking back at E3 2021, it wasn’t the same as previous years. Even without the pandemic, E3 had been waning. Marketing budgets have bifurcated among digital, physical, events and third parties, and E3 was getting a smaller share than ever before.
Console creators and game publishers started realising that holding their own events, streamed online, allowed greater control of the message and room for their messages to breathe outside the kerfuffle.
But, despite all of that, surprisingly, there was a shedload of cool updates, DLC and new games for racing games fans across all platforms, and Rich is here to inform you of the most important news from the event.
We sat through endless sizzle reels, developer interviews, roguelikes, rogue-lites and actions RPGs to find all the racing game goodness and here’s everything you need to know in a special-edition episode of the Traxion.GG News.
