EA has announced that it is delaying its EA Play Live conference amid the ongoing protests against police brutality and social injustice taking place in the U.S. and other countries around the world.
The event was initially scheduled for June 11th, but EA has decided to postpone it to June 18th at 4 p.m. PDT (7 p.m. EDT) and June 19th at midnight in some regions in Europe, such as the United Kingdom. The announcement was posted on the social media account by the company yesterday, June 5th.

We will be seeing World Premieres of new titles and will definitely be attention given to games that will launch for the next-generation PS5 and Xbox Series X consoles. A showcase that reveals the next iteration of sports games such as FIFA 21, NFL 21, and NHL 21 is also expected, as well as some kind of announcement about Apex Legends and its presence on the upcoming consoles, considering that the title is a year old only and there is almost no possibility of a new sequel for now.
What Other Reveals Should We Expect?
There are other latent series, including Dead Space and Mass Effect, which could make a comeback. It is also very likely that we’ll get some news of Dragon Age IV, which has been rumored to be in works for some time now. No question there will be mention of smaller games that will be published by EA with previous titles such as Unravel, A Way Out, and Fe all expected to be revealed at the upcoming EA conference.
The company may also unveil new IPs, which would really be next-gen. EA Play Live’s delay follows similar postpones both Sony and its PS5 reveal event and the Guerilla Collective showcase delays, which were scheduled to take place this weekend.
