In truth, Electronic Arts has stopped attending the E3 event for quite some years now. Instead, Electronic Arts is focusing on its own event – EA Play – scheduled to take place around the same time as the E3 event.
So, although the press conference Electronic Arts supported was not exactly part of the E3 event, it was take over and included in the unofficial live transmissions schedule at the event.
The bad news for those who made it a habit of watching E3 transmissions from home, Electronic Arts confirmed that for the 2019 edition of the EA Play event, Electronic Arts will not back the usual press conference, and it will be replaced by a series of livestreams that will take place during the EA Play event.
The EA Play 2019 event will take place between June 7 – June 8, 2019, at the Hollywood Palladium in Los Angeles. Access will be free to all those who are interested and attendees will be able to take part at hands-on sessions with titles that are currently under development.
With Electronic Arts’ exit from the press conferences around the E3 2019, the month of june announces itself as being a bit poorer for gamers compared to previous years. Sony PlayStation also confirmed it will not attend E3 in 2019 and will not host a press conference.
