No EA Play Live This Year!

Electronic Arts will not hold its event around E3’s time in 2022.


In 2020, Andrew Wilson’s company hosed EA Play Live on June 11. It was here that the publisher announced the new Skate game and It Takes Two from Josef Fares’ studio Hazelight, which has since won several awards. In 2021, EA Play Live was not missed either, with Electronic Arts confirming Dead Space Remake (being developed by Motive, and we recently reported that it will be coming to PlayStation 5, Xbox Series and PC in early 2023) and GRID Legends (as Codemasters is now under EA) announced at the event, which took place on July 22.

In a statement sent to IGN, Electronic Arts confirmed that there would be no EA Play Live this 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, things aren’t lining up this year 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!” the statement says.

It confirms why Motive held a stream a few days ago with the sound design for the Dead Space Remake, and they’ll officially be showing more of Isaac Clarke’s story in May regarding the art design. And apart from that, it’s understandable why they cancelled the whole thing: the reception of Battlefield 2042 hasn’t been excellent, there might not be a Call of Duty rival from them this fall, and BioWare still needs time for the new Mass Effect and Dragon Age 4… In other words, they don’t have enough hard-hitting material.

Then a summer event can be crossed off the calendar.
