EA, the gigantic publisher behind games like Apex Legends, Anthem, and Battlefield V, have announced that they will not be having an EA PLAY press conference during E3 2019, but instead, will be putting forth all of their efforts on EA PLAY itself and multiple live streams that will air during the first two days of the event, June 7 and June 8.
EA shared the news on their official blog, telling fans what to expect during this, the fourth year of EA PLAY:
“2019 will mark our fourth year of EA PLAY. What we envisioned as a celebration of play has become an incredible moment that we love to share with the community each year. We are so grateful for all our fans who have joined us, and we look forward to making this year an even better experience.
This year you’ll see less talk and more play, with an event entirely focused on the heartbeat of EA PLAY: our player communities and the games they love.
- First hands-on with some of our biggest games.
- Exclusive content from some of the most popular creators in the world.
- Free for all to attend.”
In the next segment of the post, EA states that they will not be hosting an EA PLAY press conference. Mind you, that this news comes after the announcement from Sony that they will also not be hosting a press conference of their own.
“It all starts this year on Friday night, June 7, 2019, with an all-new EA PLAY kickoff event.
We’re skipping the press conference this year and are replacing it with multiple live streams that will air during the first two days of the event, bringing you more of what you’ve told us you want – more gameplay and insights from the teams making the games.”
For more info on EA PLAY, you’re going to have to wait just a couple of more weeks, as tickets will be available sometime in April.
