In recent years, several publishers of big name board games have moved from presentations on E3. Instead of competing for the spotlight, many companies such as EA and Nintendo are now hosting stand-alone conferences where focus completely on themselves.
In addition to E3 2019, Electronic Arts will again host its EA Play event. This year, however, there will be no media presentations taking place, instead there will be a series of live feeds that start on Friday, June 7th. Here is the official word from EA’s blog:
This year you see less talk and more games, with an event entirely focused on the heart of EA PLAY: our gaming communities and the games they love. We skip the press conference this year and replace it with several live feeds that will fly during the first two days of the event, giving you more of what you have told us you want ̵
1; more games and insights from teams doing the players.
Fans will be able to play all the newly named titles Saturday, June 8 and Sunday June 9th.
Weekends are intended for games, and this year we have moved EA PLAY fanfest to Saturday, June 8 and Sunday June 9, where the players will be practical with our games. We also have content creators who live live from our Creator Cave in Hollywood Palladium, which provides game content to our players watching the net. EA.com will be home to all online EA PLAY content. Players can get behind the scenes with our games via exclusive gameplay revealing, developer calls and breaking news.
