Electronic Arts separated from E3 years ago, and it will continue to do so for the foreseeable future. Hosting its own event with EA Play, the dates for this year have been revealed, setting it one month after E3 2021. For those interested, EA Play Live 2021 will be going down, as a virtual event, on July 22.
While we don’t have any specifics about what EA Play Live will have to offer this year, we can expect our first look at Battlefield 6 with so many leaks and rumors swirling around in recent weeks. More on FIFA could also be anticipated and possibly a glimpse at the rumored new Star Wars games in the works.
We may get a cinematic reveal for Battlefield 6 sometime this month or around E3 time in June, with a full gameplay reveal in July for EA Play Live. It was teased that Battlefield 6 would be shown off “soon,” so we’re hoping for that staggered announcement schedule versus waiting for our first look until the end of July.
I’m also hoping that we’ll see something more that EA has up its proverbial sleeve for Nintendo Switch owners. Last year was actually not bad for those that love the Nintendo hybrid platform; maybe we’ll see even more surprises this year. Madden, perhaps? More Star Wars adventures?
Regarding “I hope this happens but likely won’t at all” hopes and dreams, I’m praying for the rumored Star Wars: The Old Republic remake to make an appearance. Even though the rumors state that it’s not the original team working on this project, it would be really awesome to see a confirmation and maybe even a trailer showing off various improvements. Do I think that will be there? No, not really, but we can dream.
