Electronic Arts won’t hold an E3 conference this year. The publisher said in a press release today that it will again hold EA Play in Los Angeles during the weekend before E3, but that the focus of the event will be livestreams and hands-on for players. No more soccer memes and disappointing mobile reveals, sadly.
Oh thank Christ...
EA’s pressers have always been the worst of the E3 pressers, but last year’s was just abysmal. People are there (and watching online) to see the games, not CEOs prattling on about being “committed” to their players or some boring mobile nonsense.
Everyone should do like Sony and Nintendo, cut out every strip of fat, and just focus on the things players actually give a damn about.
