EA Play is going digital this year in an effort to work around coronavirus quarantine conditions.
Fans are still holding out hope for big things when EA Play finally arrives. One thing gamers are especially excited for is the potential of NBA Live 21.
Will we see NBA Live 21 at EA Play?
EA Play usually takes place around E3 in the summer and is EA’s chance to show off their upcoming titles for gamers around the world.
COMING BACK: EA suggested NBA Live will be back when they called off the game last year
After cancelling their release last year with a statement saying “We have our sights set on creating something fresh for the next generation of players and platforms” expectations are high for a fresh game this year.
Is NBA Live 21 definitely coming?
All signs would seem to suggest it is. A recent EA financial report quoted a “yet unannounced EA Sports title”, which is surely NBA Live 21.
LOOKING GOOD: We want to see the NBA wars return this year
If EA really want to make a splash then keeping the title closely guarded and giving it a fanfare announcement during EA Play with a release date, trailer, and perhaps even next-gen exclusivity would certainly do that.
How to watch EA Play
EA Play will start at 4pm PT / 7pm ET on Thursday 18 June. That's 12am BST on Friday 19 June for UK gamers.
You can watch on EA.com and almost certainly on their official
social media channels too.
EA Play Schedule
There is not running order for EA Play just yet.
We expect FIFA 21 and Madden 21 to receive top billing from EA Sports, but with major titles like Apex Legends and Star Wars also on the EA books it will be a jam-packed show!
