Alex Seropian, co-founder and former CEO of Halo developer Bungie, has said he's relieved that E3 has been downsized into a smaller event - adding that it benefited publishers much more than developers.
Speaking to ArmchairEmpire Seropian said, "I've got to say, it's a huge relief. As a developer, E3 brought its share of excitement. There's a lot of attention put on the industry and if you've got something that's debuting or being shown, it's very exciting.
But more often than not, it ends up being a huge drain on resources to focus and to prepare for an event that really, from a developer's perspective, did not seem to serve any purpose whatsoever," he continued.
"It was really a big strokefest for the publishers to see who could make the most noise."
