A tribute livestream will also be held on Thursday, September 6.
Writing on Twitter, EA's statement says contributions will go to the victims, including the families of Taylor Robertson and Elijah Clayton. It says the livestream is designed to "show that this horrific event will not define us, but only serve to make our community stronger."
