EA Play will return this year, but not in June.
EA has today announced that EA Play Live, the online version of its summer showcase event, will return this year. Unlike previous iterations, however, this year's show will take place in July.

EA Play Live 2021 takes place July 22, which is a month later than its usual spot. Though EA has not been part of E3 for years, the publisher always held EA Play in close proximity to E3 - including last year's digital event.
This announcement comes on the heels of Battlefield's official channels hinting that the game's initial unveiling will take place in June, and not in May as everyone expected going off EA's history. We still expect the game's full reveal to be part of EA Play Live's line-up in July, it just seems everything got moved back one month.
Battlefield is, of course, EA's biggest game this year. Outside of that, you can expect the usual line-up of sports games and EA Originals titles. Though they're still early in development, we could also get another look at Dragon Age 4, Skate 4 and perhaps something form the recently-acquired Codemasters.
