EA Play Live will return in July

EA dodges E3 by a full month

This year’s EA Play Live event will not only be dodging E3, but doing it by a whole month. Electronic Arts announced today that EA Play Live is coming back on July 22, 2021.

Last year, EA hosted a brief Play event, with new Dragon Age looks and the reveal that a new Skate in the works. It also took place in June, right around the time that E3 would’ve normally been happening.

This year looks to be a bit different though. Along with E3 2021 moving ahead with a digital event, there was also a recent tease that the next Battlefield will have something to share in June. Couple that with Respawn’s constant growth, BioWare working on both a new Dragon Age and the next Mass Effect, plus Skate, and this could be a larger show—and maybe why the event is putting some distance between itself and June.

We’ll see what EA has in store on July 22.
