The E3 expo is to remain in Los Angeles, it has been revealed.
The Entertainment Software Association has confirmed it will remain in the West Coast city for another three years until 2015.
The show's presence in Los Angeles was in doubt as the convention centre's South Hall is to be demolished and a football stadium - Farmer's Field - would be built in its place.
While development is underway over the next few years, E3 will continue to be hosted at the convention centre's West Hall as well as a number of venues throughout Downtown Los Angeles instead.
"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.
He added: "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."
E3 2012 was visited by 45,700 members of the video game industry, from developers to retailers and journalists, generating $40 million for Los Angeles.
