The third-party video game giant Electronic Arts - known for franchises like Battlefield, Need for Speed and FIFA - will apparently be skipping its annual 'EA Play Live' event this year.

In a statement provided to IGN, an EA representative said the company would reveal its next projects when the "time is right":

"We love EA Play Live as it's our way of connecting with our players and sharing what’s new with all of you. However, this year things aren't lining up to show you everything on one date. We have exciting things happening at our world-class studios and this year we’ll reveal much more about these projects when the time is right for each of them. We look forward to spending time with you throughout the year!"

EA originally kicked off its 'Play Live' format back in 2016, and when the pandemic hit, it was turned into a stream with a series of spotlight events. Last year's broadcast featured games like GRID, Apex Legends, Lost in Random, Knockout City, Battlefield 2042 and even Dead Space.

If we hear any developments, we'll be sure to let you know.
