Richard Branson’s Virgin Interactive is set to return to the games industry with an event at E3 in the near future.

Virgin Games was founded in 1981, working with developers and publishers such as Bethesda, Capcom and Westwood. From 1994 to 1998, Virgin was one of the largest games publishers.

According to MCV, who first broke the story, Virgin will be focusing on online games to be distributed on the major console platforms.

Virgin have yet to comment on the news. We'll learn the truth of the claim at E3, then.
