The announcement was made on twitter, where EA revealed that the new date for EA Play, which will be Thursday, June 18. The show will still start at 4:00pm PST/7:00pm EST, but besides release date information, there is no info on what to expect.

"With the important conversations taking place and important voices being heard around the world right now, we’re moving out time to come together in play,” EA said in its statement.
