The Entertainment Software Association (E3) will remain in Los Angeles for at least another three years, quelling rumors claiming the event would be held elsewhere due to construction of the $1.2 billion Farmers Field stadium, which would have seen the demoltion of the Los Angeles Convention Center.

“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,” Michael D. Gallagher, CEO of the ESA said said in a statement.

“Video games are a dominant force in the global entertainment marketplace,” Gallagher continued, “there is no better place to display that than Los Angeles. We look forward to continuing our relationship with the City and AEG.”
