EA Play Live Event Won’t Be Happening This Year
In another blow to an already uncertain summer event season, IGN may announce that EA will not be hosting its traditional EA Play event this year. Instead, the publishing giant will reveal more information about its projects “when the time comes for each of them.”
An EA representative shared the following statement with IGN:
We love EA Play Live as it’s our way of connecting with our players and sharing the latest with all of you. However, things don’t add up this year to show you everything on one date. Exciting things are happening in our world-class studios, and we’ll be revealing a lot more about these projects this year when the time comes for each one. We look forward to spending time with you throughout the year!
EA has traditionally held a press conference or broadcast in tandem with the June E3 event. Beginning in 2016, EA turned the press conference into a live event called EA Play, where fans could try out the publisher’s new line of games. Last year, the COVID-19 pandemic forced EA to switch to streaming. While live streaming is starting to return, the summer schedule remains uncertain due to E3 2022 canceling the in-person event. The Jeff Keighley Summer Games Festival is among the presentations confirmed to be making a comeback this year.
EA’s upcoming roster includes the regular sports lineup and an all-new Dead Space remake set for an early 2023 release date. Respawn is also working on several new Star Wars games. You can find our full list of the biggest upcoming games of 2022 right here.
