We reported in February that E3 would be allowing the public to attend for the first time. 15,000 tickets were made available to anyone who wanted to attend the show and we’ve now learned that these tickets have sold out.
The E3 organisers have announced today that the tickets have sold out. Despite being priced at $250 a ticket, all of the available 15,000 tickets have officially sold out. Those attending the event will be able to visit the show floor to test exclusive game demos and visit different stalls.
Though the Fans Passes have sold out, there are still business passes available. However, these passes are different and allow access to different sections of the event.
This news comes ahead of the start of E3 next month. The previously media exclusive event will be starting on June 13th however, the press conferences will be taking place before then.
Here are the press conference times we know of so far:
EA – Saturday June 10th. The EA Play event will not be at E3 and begins at 12 PM PT / 8 PM BST
Microsoft – Sunday June 11th. Starts at 2 PM PT / 10 PM BST
PC gaming Show – Monday June 12th. Starts at 10 AM PT / 6 PM BST
Sony – Monday June 12th. Takes place at 6 PM PT / 2 AM BST
Nintendo – 9 AM PT / 5 PM BST
It’s already been confirmed by Bethesda that they will be hosting their conference on Sunday June 11th. However, the company has now provided a start time yet. In addition to this, Ubisoft also hasn’t confirmed the date and time of their press conference.
