The separation between Electronic Arts and FIFA gives wings to the federation. Confident, she claims that her own soccer game will be the best just because her name is a mark of quality.
Goodbye Fifa 24, hello EA Sports FC. Last night, the rumors became official a few hours before EA’s financial results presentation. The publisher has confirmed that from 2023, its famous football game franchise will change its name.
FIFA prepares its competitor from EA Sports FC
A strategic decision is to no longer have to pay monstrous sums for “four letters on the box”. $2.5 billion over the next decade just for the use of the World Cup hurts indeed. And it will perhaps be the federation that will emerge as the winner of this historic divorce.
In any case, this is what Gianni Infantino, boss of the International Federation of Football Association, proclaims loud and clear. In the wake of this announcement, FIFA confirmed its intention to release its own football game which would use the famous four letters. To shape the great rival of EA Sports FC, the federation indicates that it is in discussion with several “publishers, studios and investors”. Confident, she assures that her future football simulation will be ready for 2024 and that it will be the best because … it will have the name FIFA on it.
I can assure you that the only authentic and real game that bears the FIFA name will be the best available for gamers and football fans. The name FIFA is the only global and original title. FIFA 23, 24, 25 and 26, and so on – the constant is the FIFA name and it will forever remain and remain THE BEST.

In the meantime, the FIFA name will appear on other games and virtual experiences, including ” the 2022 World Cup. Other projects are currently being studied with several publishers, with a view to the next Women’s World Cup. »
