EA has canceled its plans for an EA Play Live event this year.
In a statement given to IGN, an EA representative said the event wasn’t coming together as it wanted them to, so it will be revealing more about its upcoming projects in some other way during the year.
The full statement reads as follows:
We love EA Play Live as it’s our way of connecting with our players and sharing what’s new with all of you. However, this year things aren’t lining up to show you everything on one date. We have exciting things happening at our world-class studios and this year we’ll reveal much more about these projects when the time is right for each of them. We look forward to spending time with you throughout the year!

EA Play’s cancelation comes as much of the usual Hot Game Summer shows are in flux or unclear at this point. As of this writing, we still don’t know if E3 will have an in-person event in LA this year. But some events like Tokyo Game Show and PAX are returning to in-person events after various digital alternatives took place over the past two years during the COVID-19 pandemic.
My question now to Electronic Arts is, “when will we see Dragon Age 4?” BioWare said it intended to show the next game in the fantasy RPG saga this year, but I imagine EA Play was one of the studio’s intended showcases. So maybe we might see it show up at a console showcase for PlayStation or Xbox. But time will tell.
