Whether or not the ESA and E3 will host a digital event this year has yet to be confirmed. Although E3 as we know it is cancelled, the organisers committed to "exploring options with our members to coordinate an online experience to showcase industry announcements and news in June 2020".

Before the COVID-19 pandemic put a damper on things, this year's E3 was planned to run from June 9th to June 11th.

In the same post, it was also stated that E3 will "look forward to bringing you E3 2021 as a reimagined event that brings fans, media, and the industry together in a showcase that celebrates the global video game industry". Though the status of E3 2020 has since been in limbo, the Entertainment Software Association seems to already be looking ahead to next year's event.

E3 has been facing criticism and struggles with dwindling interest over the last few years. But according to GamesIndustry.biz there is now no update on if the company plans to hold a digital event in place of the canceled E3 2020.
