EA has confirmed that they will host a digital version of their EA Play showcase which would have otherwise run around the time of the now-canceled E3 2020 show.
The 2020 EA Play digital event will stream on June 11 starting at 4 p.m. Pacific time. A tweet from the Summer Game Fest suggests that the show will be a part of their larger event, but it’s not clear at this time what the nature of that relationship is in terms of content. However, as EA had used its most recent EA Play show as a chance for people to actually play upcoming games, we imagine that they will release demos of revealed titles in some kind of format.
EA has promised that this showcase will feature “world premieres, news, and more” as well as “community content.” We imagine that it will essentially feature everything that EA would have shown as part of their previously planned EA Play Live event that would have run close to the start of E3 2020 (even if EA’s events and press conferences would not have officially been part of that show).
Based on what we’ve heard so far, it sounds like this will be more than just a collection of trailers such as what we typically see in something like Nintendo’s Direct streams. However, EA hasn’t yet shared the specifics regarding what the format of this show will be and what you should expect from it.
