EA is Skipping its Annual EA Play Live Show This Year

Matt Lorrigan

EA has announced that it won't be hosting its annual EA Play Live event this year.

In a statement to IGN, an EA representative said that events hadn't aligned to allow the publishing giant to show off everything new at once, and instead it will be revealing projects at multiple points throughout the year.

“We love EA Play Live as it's our way of connecting with our players and sharing what’s new with all of you. However, this year things aren't lining up to show you everything on one date,” says the official statement. “We have exciting things happening at our world-class studios and this year we’ll reveal much more about these projects when the time is right for each of them. We look forward to spending time with you throughout the year!”

Last year's EA Play Live took place in July, just over a month after E3, and saw the reveal of GRID Legends and the new Dead Space remake. It also revealed more details on Battlefield 2042 and Lost in Random, but it was otherwise a fairly quiet show.

It's already been confirmed that E3 won't be returning in 2022 as a physical event, although it could still run as a digital show as it did last year, while Geoff Keighley has confirmed Summer Game Fest will also return.

  • Good, basically all microtransactions services garbage anyways
  • clap X 5 THANK YOU EA clap X 5 THANK YOU EA
  • Only interested in a few games anyway, so this won't be missed at all.
  • I don't like this trend of shows going away. The excitement around E3 was so much fun, now it seems like everything is leaked ahead of time or publishers don't have anything out of the ordinary.
