Once again, EA are skipping out on E3 proper this year, hosting their own off-site event on the weekend prior to the show. EA Play 2018 will run June 9-11, closing out the night before the E3 show floor opens. They’ve confirmed the “next Battlefield experience” will be on hand and playable at the event.
We'll soon hear far more on this and other upcoming PC games.
A new Battlefield was confirmed for October 2018 release as part of EA’s last financial report. Anthem’s delay was made official then with a warning not to call it a delay, and the wording in EA’s press release suggests Bioware’s new title won’t be playable for those in attendance. Instead, fans will “get an inside look” at the game.
