Electronic Arts will host a digital showcase of its upcoming games on June 11.
Kicking off at 4pm PST / 7pm EST / midnight UK, the EA Play Live event promises to deliver “world premieres, news and more”.
It will be broadcast on EA’s website and take place on what would have been the final day of E3 2020, which was cancelled in March amid concerns over the coronavirus.
Last year’s EA Play event debuted a new format which focused specifically on six games, each of which received a half-hour slot.
FIFA 21 and Madden 21 are likely to be revealed at next month’s EA Play event, and Respawn‘s Apex Legends should feature again.
While DICE is currently working on the final new content update for Battlefield 5, EA said last month that the Battlefield 6 release date will fall in calendar year 2021, so it could use EA Play Live to provide the first look at the next entry in the series.
Fellow EA studio BioWare confirmed in February that it was redesigning troubled MMO Anthem, so we could see the fruits of that work at EA Play. It’s also working on the next Dragon Age game, although that’s not expected to be released for at least a couple of years.
EA recently announced plans to bring five games to Stadia. Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order will join Google’s cloud-based gaming platform before the end of 2020, while FIFA and Madden games will arrive this winter and further EA titles will be made available in 2021.
