EA Play Live Will Be A Digital Event Next Month
Electronic Arts is going digital with this year’s EA Play Live 2020. The company announced a virtual version of its annual fan event, which normally takes place right around E3 every year, that’s set to happen this June. EA Play was an event that the publisher has held concurrent to the Electronic Entertainment Expo that takes place in Los Angeles each June. EA dropped out of that show starting in 2016, but it started to hold its own event at the same time, still making its usual game announcements and reveals.

Other than dating the event and commenting that it will feature “world promises, news, and more,” EA didn’t indicate what kind of games will be featured. It’ll likely be jam-packed, however, seeing as there are no constraints when it comes to waiting for people to watch, etc. It will simply premiere and everyone at home can tune in. We’ll be bringing you all the news from EA Play, so don’t worry.
Monday’s announcement is sparse. EA did not hint at what fans can expect other than “world premieres, news and more.” During EA Play 2019, Respawn Entertainment showed images of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, which launched in November 2019, and showed a new Apex Legends character. Also revealed a new The sims 4 expansion called Live on the island.
E3 2020 was originally scheduled for June 9-11 in Los Angeles. The event was canceled in March due to concerns about the new coronavirus. The COVID-19 outbreak was declared a pandemic on March 11, the day E3 was cancelled, and many countries have banned large gatherings of people.
EA Play 2020 will take place on Thursday 11th June at 4pm PST / 12am BST.
