Last year, EA Games did not attend E3 but instead elected to host their own event, EA Play. This year they intend to do the same, hosting the EA Play 2017 event at the Hollywood Palladium from June 10-12th.
It is likely that certain games will still appear at various booths at the E3 convention.However with the extensive list of games that EA has, it is no surprise they are electing to host their own event again. They have more than enough to talk about.
With the resurgence of Star Wars, and the fact that EA holds the license to the gaming aspect, we may hear some news of new Star Wars games. Also, with the Nintendo Switch release soon at hand it would give them a great platform to speak about new games, and showcase them for the brand new system.
This event will be three months after the release of Mass Effect Andromeda, so it would be in the potential DLC announcement window along with potential DLC for Battlefield 1 and Titanfall 2. Game such as the Sims, Dragon Age, and Plants vs Zombies 2 have not been mentioned recently so perhaps we will hear some news on those fronts as well.
Like last year, if you are unable to make it to the event (like 95% of people), they will be streaming the entire thing so you can tune in online.
