The era of FIFA play is coming to an end. The long series of EA football games will end with FIFA 23just to start the new season with the new name EA Sports FC.
EA and FIFA finally split after the reports scandalous football authority tried to increase A fee of $ 150 million EA paid for name licensing. Fortunately for football fans (in the US) and football fans (everywhere else), EA announced in a blog post that the game itself will not change much after the rebranding.
More details on EA Sports FC’s new game will be revealed in the summer of 2023. But in the meantime, EA has reassured players, EA Sports FC will still include more than 19,000 players in 700 teams in 30 leagues, including the UK Premier League. , Spain La Liga, German Bundesliga, Italian Serie A and MLS from the United States. All that is actually changing is the name – oh, and the game will not include World Cup content, as seen in previous parts.
FIFA 23, the last game in the series, will include FIFA Women’s and Men’s World Cup competitions for the first (and, apparently, last) time. The Men’s World Cup begins in Qatar in November, while the Women’s World Cup takes place in Australia and New Zealand in July 2023.
Meanwhile, FIFA President Gianni Infantino has promised to continue with a wider range of gaming experiences, instead of linking the brand to a series. “FIFA’s name is the only global original title”, Infantino said in a statement. “FIFA 23, FIFA 24, FIFA 25 and FIFA 26 and so on … the constant is the name of FIFA and it will stay forever and will remain the best.”
The FIFA gaming brand started with FIFA International Soccer in 1993, making it one of the longest continuous gaming series.
