The Entertainment Software Association has announced that next year’s E3 will once again take place in Los Angeles in June.

The ESA also added that the Los Angeles Convention Center will be E3’s home through to 2015. “We are proud to partner with Los Angeles for another three years. The City serves as a strong backdrop for the video game industry’s biggest announcements and we look forward to remaining in LA,” said Michael D. Gallagher, CEO of the ESA. “Video games are a dominant force in the global entertainment marketplace and there is no better place to display that than Los Angeles. We look forward to continuing our relationship with the City and AEG.”

This year E3 brought 45,700 video game industry professionals, investor analysts, journalists and retailers from 103 countries together, and generated $40 million in revenue for Los Angeles.

“The City of Los Angeles is thrilled to welcome E3 back for another three years,” said Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa. “My office was committed to doing whatever it took to keep the largest annual conference that the City hosts here for another three years. I personally joined in the negotiations, and we worked with all parties to ensure the needs of E3 would be met. The City is grateful the Entertainment Software Association continues to view LA, the entertainment capital of the world, as the ideal location for the world’s premiere video game convention.”

So there you have it, E3 now has a home for the next three years.
