EA Play Live 2022 Scrapped, Projects Not ‘Lining Up’ for One Show
Electronic Arts has confirmed it won’t be hosting an EA Play Live showcase — neither physically nor digitally — later this year during the traditional E3 timeframe in June. In a statement issued to IGN, the publisher explains this is because the projects it currently has on the books “aren’t lining up to show you everything on one date”. Instead, EA will share more information on its upcoming games “when the time is right for each of them” throughout 2022.
The complete statement reads: “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. 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!”
This is another blow to the customary slate of conferences and announcements around the Electronic Entertainment Expo, which still isn’t even confirmed to be actually taking place digitally this year. We already know there are no plans to host the show in person, and an online event hasn’t been announced to take its place just yet.
