With EA Play 2021 being right around the corner (July 22), fans are beginning to make bets on which games will come to light. Of course, being EA, we can definitely put our chips on the likes of Battlefield 2042, Madden NFL 22 and FIFA 22 making an appearance. As well as that, The Sims 4 is likely to receive its cluster of updates, and EA may even touch base on the rumored Dead Space revival, which has been causing quite the commotion these past few months. But we’ll have to hang fire on that until EA either confirm or deny its conception.
In other news, EA has officially announced that Star Wars won’t be making any form of appearance at EA Play 2021. Instead, the publisher will aim to bring fresh content to the table over 2022, meaning the next six months will be pretty quiet for the Empire and its woven worlds. Until then, you’ll just have to put your hopes on that Dead Space reboot.
“We won’t be showing any new Star Wars games at EA Play Live on July 22nd…but all of us look forward to celebrating with you next year when we share our vision for the Galaxy far, far away!”
It’s not all bad news…
EA Play 2021, although only scheduled to run for under an hour, will most definitely dip into several upcoming projects, with or without Star Wars frontlining the show. So, you can still expect a generous offering from the celebrated publisher, with a few additional lights shed on updates, DLC and spin-off entries.
To sweeten the mood a smidgen, BioWare will also be releasing the next expansion for Star Wars: The Old Republic later this year. Although no date has been set in stone, the developer has mentioned it coming to public test servers “in the near future” and that it will be available as a free add-on to current owners of the base game. So, it’s not all that bad.
