Electronic Arts Announces Digital EA Play For June

EA is the latest to take things online.

Following the trend of taking in-person events online, Electronic Arts has announced it will host a live-streamed version of its EA Play event this year. EA Play Live is currently set for June 11, starting at 4 p.m. PT.

Posted on Electronic Arts' Twitter feed, EA says there will be world premieres, news, and more. Not much more is known right now, other than the EA Play site has been updated with the new date, but we'll likely learn more closer to June.

EA has been absent from the E3 festivities for a while now, opting to host its own EA Play event in Los Angeles instead. But with the absence of E3 2020, as well as the ongoing COVID-19 global health crisis, going digital seems inevitable.

Many digital events have sprung up around the void of summer gaming news and announcements. The recently unveiled Summer Game Fest promises four months of gaming news and demos, and listed among the "Phase 1" participants is Electronic Arts.

It's unclear what EA plans to show this year. You can likely expect the usual suspects of sports games, as well as something about the still-thriving battle royale Apex Legends; the latter just announced its newest champion, Loba, who has a pretty cool backstory as a vengeful thief who wants to kill a robot. Whether we'll see news of something even further out, like a new Star Wars game or the still-missing Dragon Age 4, remains to be seen. Fingers crossed, though.
