Last year EA skipped the E3 2016 event in favor of its own EA Play event and this year is going to be no different for the publishing giant. EA has announced that EA Play 2017 will take place from June 10 to June 12 and will be held at the Palladium in Hollywood, California.
EA Said in a press release that EA Play 2017 will “connect fans around the world to EA’s biggest new games through live broadcasts, community content, competitions and more”.
The event will feature a hands-on gameplay and live entertainment. Those watching from home will be treated to “live streams, deeper looks into EA’s upcoming games and experiences, and content from some of the best creators in the community”.
This will be the second time in a row that EA will be skipping the Electronic Entertainment Expo. This year’s E3 will take place from June 13 to June 15.
It seems to be E3 has lost its importance in the game industry as every year many developers choose to skip this annual event.
Do you think E3 has lost its importance in the game industry? Should all devs need to host their own events? Let us know in the comments.
