The mud fight between EA and FIFA is like two small children when ranging to watch a toy. Two billion -dollar toddlers who are unclear about their role and reputation in the world. They have not yet learned the concept of sharing, because they want the object of the dispute, a billion-dollar football franchise , prefer to broken than let the other play with it.
While there are already only losers between the two, football fans in the middle of the rougere can have hope for a somewhat more varied future .
FIFA vs. EA: embarrassing, embarrassing
While the end of the FIFA series was already indicated in 2021 and EA had crowned around FIFA several times, it is now official: The football series will be called EA Sports FC from the 2023/2024 season ** and with it a pretty Save the amount of license rights-money that the publisher may invest in more sophisticated lootbox or live service mechanics. However, the partnerships with clubs and players as well as modes and gameplay should remain unaffected by the change.
FIFA, the shadowy football organization, in which pretty much everything is available, does not want to put up with it and therefore drive a powerful counterattack-in 2024 a football simulation is to be stamped out of the ground and before that even other games with the FIFA Names are released. President Gianni Infantino has essentially overturned an insulted-liver sausage fan scarf in a press release and claims that only games with the authentic FIFA license will continue to be the only true football games . The constant is the FIFA name and this would survive forever and always remain the best. The formulations of the press release are rhetorically on a step with “Channel me, you egg hole” and “don’t count, there is Klippo on the wall.”

FIFA 24: Football fans can hope for the future
EAS FIFA series has dominated the football niche of the gaming industry in recent years that would probably describe Bavaria-Munich fans as one-sided. Due to the break between the organization and the publisher, could at least get some movement in the genre . After Konami has said goodbye to the league of playable football simulations with efootball as voluntarily as it is pointless, FIFA could send new publisher to the hunt for the championship title and (consciously or unconsciously) provide more diversity.
This could make EA integrate a few real innovations into EA Sports FC, to present the same move in a new jersey every year every year. These changes and de-monopolization can only be good for football fans-even if we have to experience other quarrels on the billionaire playground until then, which is never about football, but always only about money.
_In of our video we show you the biggest excitement in the gaming industry: _
Don’t you want to miss news about technology, games and pop culture? No current tests and guides? Then follow us on Facebook (Giga Tech Tech, Giga Tech Games) or Twitter (Giga Tech Tech, Giga Tech Games).
EA Sports FC must after that bring “delight, inclusion and immersion for an international community of followers” from 2023. Nonetheless, no technology is named, which must only happen according to FIFA 23.
At the same time, EA stresses that it ought to not only be a symbolic adjustment, yet a real clean slate. The “independent platform” would certainly bring “fresh opportunities”. Investments would certainly be made in sporting activity and also worked with increasingly more partners on new, authentic experiences.
At least currently the whole thing checks out a little bit like the old delicious chocolate bar ad: “Raider is currently called Twix, otherwise nothing will change.”
At the very same time, the FIFA (i.e. the association) prepares an affordable item. The FIFA and Electronics Arts speak of authenticity as well as brand-new football experiences-but is that actually the most important factor?
This goes to EA: In summer 2023 it mores than: FIFA as we understand it will certainly no longer exist. So – essentially a minimum of. Regardless, the news of EA Sports reviews.
This is what FIFA does currently: FIFA (the World Football Association) quit directly as well as released a news release that they would currently create brand-new football computer game (yes, plural) also with exterior studios and also publishers. Some video games that are not based on simulation are currently in production and are said to appear this year, in the run -as much as the World Mug.
As opposed to “FIFA”, gamers should play “EA Sports FC” from summer season 2023. The new variation of the football simulation, which ought to have “everything”, what you “love”: modes, real players and teams, stadiums, leagues therefore on-all of that need to stay on board (using ea.com ). It also fits that you have concurred with the permit companion FIFPRO in the long-term.
In addition, FIFA President Gianni Infantino spoke up in the message as well as stressed:
Once again, words “genuine” is used right here – and that’s no surprise. After all, the element that the FIFA collection always had a large component of genuine players and clubs was an important benefit over the enduring competitor Pro Development Football.
I can guarantee you that the only authentic, genuine game that is called FIFA will certainly be the most effective that is readily available for gamers as well as football fans. The name FIFA is the only global, initial title. FIFA 23, FIFA 24, FIFA 25 as well as FIFA 26 and also so on – the continuous is the name FIFA and it will certainly stay permanently and the best keep. “
It seems extra like “the large football video game” is a particularly scrumptious cake, both of which believe that they get insufficient.
Little is unusual that both sides now offer themselves as the “genuine” rep who wants to use the most effective football experience in virtual space.
But if you take a look at the history of the dispute, it ends up being clear that it is not concerning gaming, authenticity or football.
What duty does cash play in this conflict?
That is really suggesting? Both celebrations who dabble with football video games have been slammed for a long period of time when it involves cash.
* EA Sports is frequently slammed for its Ultimate team techniques. In addition, there is also the purchase rate for FIFA. EA brings a brand-new version of the series as a full rate game every year.
* The FIFA as the World Football Association, in turn, is criticized by several football fans to greatly promote the commercialization of football. As an example, the controversial World Cup allocation according to Qatar, but additionally factors such as corruption scandals play a function.
** What are the factors for the splitting up? But in the past couple of weeks and also months, aspects have always emerged that are stated to have actually added to this.
When EA Sports openly believed concerning renaming the series and also no much longer utilizing the FIFA license, * It began in autumn 2021. According to New York City Times, FIFA is stated to have requested two times the rate for the license at the time – around one billion dollars for 4 years, rather of 500 million as before.
* Additionally, FIFA should wish to restrict the opportunities of generating income within the games as well as keep exclusive rights with it, while EA desired to include more chances for monetization.
At that time, the VGC reported that Wilson, according to anonymous sources, emphasized that FIFA was restricted. Due to the fact that the FIFA in turn has a collaboration with Adidas.
* On top of that, Wilson needs to have thought that the FIFA license would just supply “4 letters on the package” in years without a World Mug.
* Wilson continuously stressed that his own gamers in fact advise EA to integrate even more brands.
In the program of the “EA Sports FC” announcement, for instance, it is obvious that, in addition to numerous football clubs, Nike has now revealed a connection with the “new” football collection:
In the ideal situation, EA with FIFA is no longer the single leading dog that can rest because nobody obtains hazardous anyway. Now a strong rival expands – as well as EA has to provide a truly great, reasonable game with many technologies with “EA Sports FC”. Or else, clients just acquire “FIFA 24”, which is no much longer marketed by EA.
For its component, FIFA, subsequently, delivers a strong game – as well as we get an affordable developer for several years who try to top each other with their games. And also since that’s not sufficient, novices UFL and a recess pro advancement Football are likewise adding the competitors. That would certainly be excellent.
What do you assume of the modification? And if you desire to try FIFA: FIFA 22 is at PS Plus.
FIFA, in turn, supplies a game that has licenses, but not a lot extra. That suggests FIFA 24 or FIFA 25 and also ensures that all kinds of individuals buy the wrong game, however do not get what you expect. Because you have to say that: Either means, the football game globe might come to be quite confusing in the future.
The opposite might likewise be the case. EA saves the FIFA license, however can continue customarily and offer the game with also more monetization. After that perhaps Nike shoes with a shot increase are offered in addition to solid gamers in the game, that recognizes.
This statement also sounds rather “economical” initially- and also not after football or video gaming heart.
Right here it is most likely time to wait – as well as really hope that there is a truly interesting, great game on both sides. Instead of one that is designed specifically for maximum earnings.
FIFA, in turn, emphasizes in its existing announcement: “The sector of the interactive games as well as e-sports gets on an unprecedented method of growth and also diversification. FIFA’s method intends to optimally make use of all future choices as well as to ensure a wide variety of items as well as opportunities for players, fans, participant associations and also companions “(by means of fifa.com).
This is at EA: In summer season 2023 it is over: FIFA as we know it will certainly no much longer exist. FIFA 23, FIFA 24, FIFA 25 and FIFA 26 and also so on – the consistent is the name FIFA and it will certainly stay for life as well as the finest remain. ”
EA saves the FIFA license, yet can continue as typical and provide the game with even more money making. That suggests FIFA 24 or FIFA 25 as well as makes sure that all kinds of people get the wrong game, but don’t obtain what you expect. And also if you want to attempt FIFA: FIFA 22 is at PS Plus.
While EAA Sports officially announced the arrival of future football games without the name FIFA in 2023, FIFA wanted to specify that football simulations will bear the FIFA name in the years to come. In a communication that seems to be a mixture of crisis and declaration of war, the organization governing world football clearly announces a desire to get out of the games bearing its name. Thus, EA and FIFA now seem to be waged war on virtual lawn.
FIFA wishes to continue the FIFA Games franchise without EA SPORTS
The international organization intends to offer football games at the end of the year, taking advantage of the 2022 World Cup to provide fans with new gaming experiences. We consider here that FIFA will launch VR games And probably a title on mobile, more than a real AAA since FIFA 23 will already be available.
On the other hand, FIFA also evokes the desire to offer an alternative to EA Sports FC (the future name of the football games developed by EA Sports coming to replace FIFA 24), by retaining the concept of the name FIFA and the year behind. Better still, the president of FIFA, Gianni Infantino, provokes his former partner by promising the “meilleur” game (the capital letters are in the original text), possible for fans.
While no studio has been mentioned, this promise nevertheless seems to be the beginning of an open war between EA and FIFA.
EA SPORTS FC, the future name of FIFA in July 2023
For those who have not followed the situation between FIFA and EA, a small recap is essential. The two brands have been linked since the early 1990s via a partnership, allowing EA to use the FIFA name for its football franchise. If this license does not include the names of the players and clubs (allowing for example Konami to offer PES with the real players), it gives EA additional credibility as well as access to competitions held by FIFA.
However, after almost four decades, it would seem that FIFA wanted to revise the price of this partnership upwards. A situation that EA does not accept who, after a few attempts to negotiate, decided to continue his journey without FIFA. From then on, from 2023 (so after FIFA 23), EA football games will be named after EA Sports FC.
Fans will find clubs and players, the mode was, only the name on the box will be really different.
Konami in ambush?
This could be the big winner of this future battle, or his first victim. Konami and his game efootball may well take advantage of the situation to regain the hair of the beast. With players believing that the FIFA game will completely disappear and a battle between two heavy goods vehicles, the Japanese studio potentially has a card to play with its free-to-play title.
If we do not think that FIFA will tap at Konami’s door to offer it a partnership, Efootball could make a more important place on the market by being shifted as a more stable actor than these main rivals (one change of name while the other must completely recreate his game).
FIFA intends to offer its own football simulation in the years to come, which should give us a battle between at least three actors: FIFA, EA Sports and Konami.
There have been apparent problems in the EA Sports and FIFA partnership for a long time, now both go officially separate ways. This also means that FIFA 23 will be the last game of EA with the name rights, the series EA Sports FC should be called. At least in one thing, fans can be reassured, because the existing exclusive partnerships should continue to be part of the football series.
It has been clear for a long time that EA Sports and FIFA would probably not extend their exclusive deal. On the one hand, this is due to the fact that FIFA prefers to divide its licenses into several cooperation partners, but probably also on the annoyance of EA, which a dapled amount would have to steal in order to continue to use the right to name.
Now both have ended the partnership together and FIFA 23 is the last game of the series with the old name. After that, however, it should not be over with the football simulation, rather it continues under the new name EA Sports FC, as EA announces in a blog entry.
What does that mean for the licenses?
Even if the games are no longer allowed to call themselves “FIFA” in the future, many of their licenses will remain, including exclusive partnerships with the Bundesliga, Premier League, La Liga, Serie A and MLS:
Everything you love about our games will be part of EA Sports FC – the same great experiences, modes, leagues, tournaments, clubs and athletes will be there. Ultimate Team, the career mode, Pro Clubs and Volta Football, will all be there. Our unique range of licenses with more than 19,000 players, over 700 teams, over 100 stadiums and 30 leagues, in which we have invested for decades, will continue to exist
So it sounds like that for fans of the FIFA series would not change so much for the time being, only that the games come in a new guise.
EA Sports FC should bring about change
But everything should not stay the same. EA promises to use the independence of the series in the blog entry in order to become more innovative and creative. That seems not surprising, after all, EA has complained in the past that FIFA is to blame for the slow development of the series. It remains to be seen whether the split off from FIFA really leads to an evolution of the game series. We know more in the summer of 2023 at the latest, then EA wants to share more details about the new game.
Before the time comes, FIFA 23 will appear this year. After all, according to the EA, it should end with a bang and this year’s offshoot will be “the best FIFA ever”.
What do you think of it, interest you the name of the game or do you hang on the licenses?
It was in the air for a long time, it was clarified with the legal deposit of new commercial brands on the side of EA, it is now official: soon, the football simulation of the American publisher will not be called More fifa. If the background should not get out changed – or very little – it is a shaping of form for the series, which loses its birth name.
It is through a press release on its official website that Electronic Arts confirmed the news: “Près almost thirty years spent creating major interactive football experiences, we will soon open a new, next year., EA SPORTS FC will become the future of football at EA SPORTS “. Negotiations will therefore have not given anything, FIFA – which we assume that it demanded more money to lend its name to the series – and EA – which obviously, thinks of being able to do without this name which took it At the top – separate by mutual agreement.
If on the side of the organization of world football, we hampered the possibility of adding the license to more games and no longer to a single exclusivity, at Electronic Arts, we mainly try to reassure the community by stressing the fact that this does not Do not change the official content of the game. “ All what you love in our games will be in EA Sports FC – the same experiences, game modes, championships, tournaments, clubs and sportsmen will be there. Ultimate team, career, Pro clubs, the Volta will all be there. Our unique license portfolio, in which we have continued to invest for decades, with more than 19,000 players, 700 teams, 100 stadiums and 30 championships, will be Only available in EA Sports FC. This includes exclusive partnerships with the Premier League, La Liga, La Bundesliga, Serie A and MLS – and much more “, Empiles Cam Weber on the publisher’s official website. The farmers League will have to wait for an ounce of consideration on the cantor of football virtual spectacle.
But the nerveless point of this press release is probably in the passage which consists in presenting this change of name as a “opportity” for EA Sports, “d’innover, to create and evolve“. By evoking the prospect of working with “un growing number of new partners“, to offer “nouvelles authentic experiences“, “reinvest in sport“, the publisher seems to give the words of his boss, Andrew Wilson, reported by VGC last February. According to the sources of the American site, the latter would have presented internally the partnership with FIFA as a brake on creativity of development – but also and above all to its commercial possibilities. “Nos players ask us for more commercial and cultural brands that speak to them, which are relevant in their markets, so that they are more deeply integrated into the game… brands like Nike. Today, because of the relationship that Available between FIFA and Adidas, we cannot do that “, he would have declared, leaving very dark clouds over the license, for whom attaches a little bit to sport and simulation.
As expected, there will therefore be a FIFA 23 next fall, wanted as the most complete of the series by EA Sports, before the big dive. After pes , you will have to learn not to talk about FIFA . It remains to be seen now whether it will still be a football game.

Scheduled to disembark from fifa 23, crossplay should be tested by EA (source in English) on the Next-Gen platforms of fifa 22 in the coming days. Indeed, the American giant has planned to deploy this option for the friendly games of the football game, without affecting the fifa Ultimate Team (FU) mode. The idea being to be able to test this technology during the coming weeks, with the aim of being able to deploy it as soon as the next opus of the franchise is launched.
As a reminder, the crossplay consists in the possibility of linking players of the same game but on several different platforms. Thus, a PS5 user can face a player using FIFA on Xbox Series.
However, this essay has two limits: the first, lies in the fact that this feature will be limited to specific game modes in a friendly match outside Ette. The second is that it will only be available for players using the Next-Gen version of the game (PS5, Xbox Series X and Stadia).
Also note that it is possible to deactivate the feature if you do not want to face players on other platforms, via the game options.
A functionality at the heart of EA’s communication on FIFA 23
If this feature is currently in testing, it is already mentioned as one of the main novelties of the future FIFA 23. Thus, many expect that the mode was impacted by crossplay, both in terms of meetings and on the transfer market.
If for the moment, no Offixelle information has come to confirm the presence of the crossplay on the mode was FIFA 23, this development seems necessary in view of the current market.
However, this first test period seems to indicate that this feature will be limited to the Next-Gen version of FIFA. Thus, the PC version of the game will be potentially private from Crossplay next year, less than having a passage to the Next-Gen with a year behind the consoles.
EA therefore uses the coming months to test the crossplay functionality on the FIFA 22 Next-Gen version before a larger implementation on FIFA 23. While waiting for the new EA football game, you can find all the News and our FIFA 22 guides on English.

While working on this year’s FIFA game is already in full swing, remain a difficult topic the name rights of the series. The FIFA and Publisher EA football world association has been arguing for a long-term partnership for the license fee of a new deal since 2021.
Only last week became known that EA is not more important for the series, but even more likely to be particularly important, but even as an obstacle to the franchise – Some gameplay ideas have been blocked by the dressing. So it could actually happen that the successful football simulation in the future waives the FIFA title.
