EA has announced they will be holding their annual EA Play Live event in June. With an ample amount of excitement surrounding the event, we cannot see what they have in store for us!
EA Games is one of the most recognizable faces within the gaming community, and 2021 could be the company’s biggest year in terms of releases. With Battlefield 2042 being teased to finally be revealed in June, along with annual releases such as FIFA and Madden; a lot of faith is being bestowed onto EA in 2021.
Now, they have announced a new live stream event, where we will hopefully see the gameplay of these massive titles for the first time.
Here’s everything you need to know regarding EA Play Live.
When is EA Play Live 2021
Announced through the official EA Games Twitter account, the new live-stream event is going to take place on July 22nd, 2021, and EA has also noted that the event will be kicking off at the following times.

How to watch EA Play Live
Since the event is going to be held solely online due to the ongoing global health situation, we can expect EA Play Live to be broadcasted on their YouTube channel, which is how they streamed the event in 2021.
We’ve also embedded their Twitch stream, where we could see a simulcast once the event goes live.
What to expect at EA Play Live
We can expect an ample amount of new titles to be announced once again this year. While 2020’s cast of titles was not overly exciting, this year is promising to be something special.
All eyes will be on the eventual reveal of Battlefield 6; as this title has been one of the biggest mysteries within the gaming community. However, with the recent cryptic tweets by the Battlefield account, it is a mystery whether or not it will have its own separate reveal during June.
Let’s take a look at some of the games we can expect this year:
EA Play Live Spotlight Series
Prior to the actual EA Play Live festivities kicking off, EA is going to be hosting a few other streams that will focus on a variety of subjects. In a new blog post detailing all the events they have noted the Spotlight Series is “all about connecting you to games you love and the people who make them. This means throughout the month of July, we’ll have five different broadcasts total, made up of four individual Spotlights to start and then the one main show.”
While we learned some news regarding Battlefield 2042, as the game is going to experiment with cross-play during the technical testing stage. There wasn’t a lot of information shared during this, but we’re bound to learn more in the coming weeks.

Keep an eye out for the Madden 22 showcase, as they’ll be revealing some of the new features coming with scouting in-game!
Of course, the annual sports titles of FIFA and Madden seem to be a perfect match for the next EA Play Live. As well, we could see another Star Wars game announced during this event. But gamers should expect these titles to be announced/showcased:
- Battlefield 2042
- FIFA 22
- Madden 22
- EA Sports PGA Tour 22
In recent weeks, Madden has revealed that Tom Brady and Patrick Mahomes will be dawning the cover of this year’s game, and we have heard an ample amount of news regarding Battlefield 2042.
Keep on the lookout for other titles such as The Sims 5 and a new Mass Effect, but the above games seem to be a lock for EA Play Live.
Fans received some disappointing news in the leadup to EA Play Live, as EA have stated they’ll not be showcasing any news on the sequel to Jedi Fallen Order, or any other Star Wars related games.
We won’t be showing any new Star Wars games at EA Play Live on July 22nd…but all of us look forward to celebrating with you next year when we share our vision for the Galaxy far, far away!
