Electronic Arts To Skip E3 2016

We have learned via an article posted yesterday on Polygon’s website that Electronic Arts will not be attending E3 2016, instead opting to move their press conference to a new 3-day event called EA Play that will be open to the public.

Electronic Arts today announced major changes for its presence at E3 2016, and will stage events off-site that are more accessible to fans. In return, it won’t have a booth at this year’s expo.

EA has announced EA Play, a three-day offsite event at Club Nokia near the Los Angeles Convention Center that will be open to the public. It will run June 12 (a Sunday) to June 14. A companion event will also be held in London on June 12 as well.

Further, EA will move its regular pre-E3 keynote to the Sunday preceding E3 — June 12 at 1 pm PT. EA had long been part of the Monday rotation of news conferences.
