EA Play Live usually takes place the same as E3, which this year is commencing on Saturday, 12 June.

This means fans of EA titles must wait an extra six weeks to see the latest updates on Madden 22 and NHL 22.

We saw an alleged running order leaked last month, but with the event not happening until late July - this is unlikely to be accurate.

We could see an early insight into future EA titles like PGA Tour and College Football which don't have release windows, and perhaps even a return of the Fight Night series.

Another E3 no show

EA has followed on from Konami in not being part of E3 week, meaning we will need to wait a little longer to see the heavyweight clash between FIFA 22 and PES 2022.

This is likely down to Coronavirus caused delays, with countless games being delayed in the last 12 months, with others, like Cyberpunk 2077, having hairy launches.
