EA has revealed that its presence at this year's E3 will be even smaller than we thought as it condenses two days of livestreams down to just one.
E3 is fast approaching and it feels as if gamers are expecting more information from the event than ever before. Netflix will be at the event, presumably to reveal that they will be delving even deeper into the gaming world. Plus, after basically being on the edge of our collective seat for months, we are hoping that Square Enix finally reveals something, anything about a potential Avengers game.
On the other hand, some signs point to this E3 being the smallest for years. Some heavy hitters have revealed that they will have a reduced presence at E3 next month while others have revealed that they won't be there at all. The biggest announcement came in the form of Sony revealing that it won't be taking part in E3 whatsoever this year.
Another big name that will have a reduced presence at next month's E3 is EA. The developer revealed earlier this year that it would have no press conference. Instead, it will be revealing all that it needs to via two days of livestreams taking place across the Saturday and Sunday. However, as pointed out by Kotaku, those two days have now been condensed down to just one.
In an announcement on its site pertaining to ticket information for EA Play, EA revealed that all of its livestreams will now be taking place on one day, Saturday, June 8. EA claims that will allow fans to "have a full slate of streams that will take you inside the games and new content, all on one day."
Why EA continues to reduce down its E3 presence is anyone's guess. Hopefully, it isn't linked to the hundreds of employees it was forced to let go earlier this year. Gamers will likely be okay with the changes provided there is still plenty of information about the upcoming Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. The new game promises to have an extremely in-depth single-player story and has already got gamers salivating despite the limited amount of details released so far.
