With EA Sports FIFA 23, the era of FIFA games is coming to an end. A new season of EA’s famous football game is starting. After the scandal-plagued football authority tried to increase the $150 million fee, EA paid to license the name.
Fortunately for gamers and football fans, there won’t be any major changes to the game itself. EA will announce more details about EA Sports FC in the summer of 2023. But in the meantime, EA reassured players EA Sports FC will still include more than 19,000 players in 700 teams across 30 leagues, including the UK’s Premier League, Spain’s La Liga, Germany’s Bundesliga, Italy’s Serie A, and MLS from the States.
EA Sports FIFA 23, the last game of the series will include men’s and women’s World Cup competitions for the first and perhaps the last time. The men’s world cup will start in Qatar in November, while the women’s world cup will take place in New Zealand and Australia in July 2023.
What is EA Sports FC?
All that’s being changed is the name of the game. However, EA Sports FC won’t include World Cup as seen in previous games.
Meanwhile, FIFA President Gianni Infantino has vowed to continue with a wider range of gaming experiences rather than tying up the brand with one series. “The FIFA name is the only global, original title,” Infantino said in a statement. “FIFA23, FIFA24, FIFA25 and FIFA26, and so on… the constant is the FIFA name and it will remain forever and remain the best.”
Although the game is being rebranded, there will not be any major changes in the gameplay itself. “Players should not worry about the rebranding”, said Infantino.
