Report suggests that EA will reveal several big games in July

This year's EA Play might have been canceled, but that doesn't mean that EA doesn't have a showcase planned.

We already knew that Electronic Arts would miss this month's massive video game events as the company had already confirmed EA Play is not happening this year. At the time, EA had claimed it would forgo big exhibitions in favor of individual showcases and it appears this has not changed at all.

If nothing else, we should have already gotten a FIFA 23 trailer by now.

Hot on the heels of a potential Skate reveal next month, Tom Henderson is claiming that EA is planning to announce the next installments in some of its most popular franchises going forward, specifically Skate, Need for Speed, and FIFA.

The official reveal of FIFA in July should not come as a big surprise. FIFA 21 and 22 came out in September 2020 and October 2021, respectively, with their official reveals usually coming a few months before. If we assume that FIFA 23 will come out in September or October, a July announcement makes a lot of sense. On that note, we're more interested to hear more about the new Need for Speed and Skate. The former was delayed from its original launch last year so that Criterion Games could help DICE with Battlefield 2042. With both Criterion and Codemasters working on the rumored-to-be-next-gen-exclusive racing game, fans are expecting a lot from the next Need for Speed.

It will be interesting to see what kind of product Criterion Games and Codemasters come up with in their first time teaming up.

With July only a few days away, we should start hearing more about the upcoming reveals straight from the horse's mouth. Until then, we're better off looking forward to another set of rumored showcases with the third-party Nintendo Direct and State of Play reportedly scheduled for the 30th.
