Details on July 20 EA Sports Announcement

On July 20, just days ahead of EA Play Live, EA Sports is set to make a major announcement regarding a “long-running” franchise.

While talks continue that the company is set to announce the return of a past franchise — possibly Fight Night — there is another game expected to be officially announced at or around the event.

According to sources, the EA Play Live and EA Sports event is when it will be revealed that the EA Sports NHL series will finally make the jump to the Frostbite Engine with NHL 22.

The move to Frostbite has been rumored for quite some time. The rumors really took off when an EA employee put on his LinkedIn profile that he was working on the series transition to the engine.

NHL 22 Frostbite Job Description
The since-removed job description of the EA employee mentions specifically NHL Frostbite Migration and NHL 22.

Frostbite isn’t a new engine by any means, but the EA Sports NHL series has used the Ignite Engine since jumping to the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. With NHL 22 being the first game in the franchise to come to Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation 5, it only makes sense for the game to use Frostbite. The only question then becomes will it be Frostbite 3 or the newer Frostbite 4.

We’ll find out when the announcement is made around July 20.
