The Entertainment Software Association (ESA) has announced a new record attendance figure for this year’s E3 in Los Angeles, and has also dated next year’s event.

48,900 game industry professionals, analysts, and journalists from over 100 countries descended upon the Los Angeles Convention Center, slightly improving on the 48,200 that attended last year’s show. Around 200 exhibitors—down from 230 last year—showcased their software, hardware, peripherals, and more during the event. According to the ESA, the show generated around $40 million in revenue for the city of Los Angeles.

“The video game industry’s explosive growth and technological innovation were front and center at E3 2014,” ESA president Michael Gallagher said in a statement. “Video games are the most innovative and engaging force driving our culture and entertainment experiences the world over. Congratulations to our incredibly creative members, partners, exhibitors, and the hundreds of millions of gamers who engaged with the show online and through social media.”

E3 2015 will take place at the Los Angeles Convention Center between June 16-18.

Matthew Bennett, Associate Editor
Matthew Bennett finally got his big break with EGM three years ago, following years of volunteer work for various sites. An ability to go many hours without sleep and a quick wit make him ideal for his role as associate editor at EGMNOW.com. He often thinks back to the days when the very idea of this career seemed like nothing but an impossible dream. Follow him on Twitter @mattyjb89. Meet the rest of the crew.
