EA Play Live Will Be Hosted By Pro Wrestler Xavier Woods

This year's EA Play live should bring some solid announcements, including the revival of a fan-favorite IP.


Publisher EA has recruited Twitch streamer, G4 TV host, and professional wrestler Austin "Xavier Woods" Watson to host the upcoming EA Play livestream slated for July 22 at 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET.

EA tweeted the news, confirming that a pre-show will take place before the main livestream. Watson also hopped on Twitter to confirm the announcement, saying he's "excited" to host the presentation.

Watson, who is currently an overall 11-time Tag Team Champion in the WWE, was added to the revived gaming network G4 in November 2020 with a special Thanksgiving episode. He joins original hosts like Adam Sessler, as well as new hires Alex "Goldenboy" Mendez and Ovilee May.

EA Play should draw a lot of attention, what with Battlefield 2042 launching October 22 and Dragon Age 4 currently in development. We might even see Skate 4, which was revealed during last year's EA Play. But what we're looking for from the annual event is the revival of a fan-favorite IP. Reports suggest it could be a reimagining of Dead Space developed by Motive Studios, the Montreal-based co-developer behind Star Wars Battlefront 2 and the team in charge of Star Wars Squadrons.
