The FIFA publisher will not be going to E3 2022 and is canceling its usual EA Play Live meeting. Instead, Electronic Arts will make its own announcements when the time is right.
A new blow for E3 2022 which is weakening month by month? After its desire to still take place online, the American show has its first withdrawal and perhaps not the last. Indeed, Electronic Arts have indicated that it will not organize its EA Play Live 2022 conference.
The editor can’t, he has a swimming pool
The ax fell on our colleagues from IGN where a spokesperson for Electronic Arts, therefore, announced the outright cancellation of its EA Play Live 2022.
We love EA Play Live because it’s our way of communicating with players and sharing what’s new with you all. However, this year things don’t line up enough to show you everything in one event. We have exciting projects in development across all of our studios and we’ll reveal more when the time is right for each.. We look forward to spending more time with you throughout the year!
With this announcement, Electronic Arts show that it does not need E3 and sends a strong signal which will perhaps be followed by others. In recent years, PlayStation has boycotted the high mass of video games because according to the manufacturer, the show has lost its impact. His reputation had also been tarnished due to a leak of sensitive data such as the contact details of journalists who had ended up on the web.
EA Play Live 2022 replaced by live streams
As we can see, the publisher of FIFA does not boycott the event because it has no cartridges but prefers to do things at its own pace. We know that after the Livestream on the sound design of Dead Space Remake, another will take place in May 2022 to discuss the artistic design. The same month, EA could take advantage of the celebration of Star Wars to finally formalize its Jedi Fallen Order 2.
What do you think of Electronic Arts’ choice to shun E3 2022? Is this one more sign that the salon is doomed to disappear? Is this a good thing for you? Tell us everything in the comments.
