EA says it won't hold an E3 press conference this year

  1. Unlike Sony, Electronic Arts will still have a presence at the Los Angeles Expo. The company’s annual three-day EA Play event will be running before the main conference opens to everyone.

    “We’re skipping the press conference this year and are replacing it with multiple live streams that will air during the first two days of the event, bringing you more of what you’ve told us you want – more gameplay and insights from the teams making the games,” EA said.

    EA Play, which starts on Friday, June 7, offers visitors hands-on time with some of the firm’s biggest games. There will also be content creators streaming live from the ‘Creator’s Cave,’ allowing those who can’t be there to watch gameplay online. EA says people involved in the games’ development will join the streams to provide more information.

    Tickets for EA Play, which is free to attend, will be available next month.

    While E3 might not hold the importance it once did, there’s still plenty to look forward to at the event. The hugely anticipated Cyberpunk 2077 is expected to make an appearance, and we could learn more about the next generation Xbox.

    There isn't really anything worth caring about on the EA front with the exception of their next Star Wars title being developed by Respawn. Other than that, I could not care less that EA is skipping the main conference.

    People may not like EA or even hate them but they control some big franchises right now. Better try n like them more otherwise you likely start seeing devs/studios go away like Bioware who have had chance after chance but keep failing. Wasnt EAs fault that they couldnt make Anthem better, heck they even gave them another year. Didnt help.
    Time to start realizing that the devs need to take a huge part of the blame for not making quality games not just pub.
