It’s the end of an era for fans of the FIFA franchise. As announced by the publisher EA Sports, in a press release published on Tuesday, the football simulation video game license will change its name. “After nearly 30 years of creating genre-defining interactive football experiences, we will soon begin an exciting new era”as specified by the American firm Electronic Arts, which has not reached an agreement to renew its partnership with FIFA.
From summer 2023, “EA SPORTS FC will become the future of EA SPORTS football. Alongside our more than 300 sports licensing partners, we stand ready to take global football experiences to new heights, on behalf of all football fans everywhere.”. FIFA 23 will therefore be the last to be called so and EA ensures that “the next FIFA will be the most accomplished ever, with more features, game modes, World Cup content, clubs, leagues, competitions and players than any other FIFA title”.
