FIFA confirms that they are working on their own football game
Now that the deal with publisher EA is coming to an end, FIFA will start developing its own games. The football organization makes this known in a statement on its website.
According to FIFA, new football games will be developed in collaboration with various publishers and developers. Until now, FIFA games are exclusively developed by EA Sports and published by EA. Working with other parties should give football and gaming fans more choice in what football games they want to play.
There are already a number of football games in development that should be released later this year. “The gaming and e-sports markets are getting bigger and more diverse. FIFA’s strategy is to bring a wide variety of products and capabilities to gamers, fans and our partners,” said Gianni Infantino, FIFA President.
This year will see the release of the last FIFA game developed exclusively by EA Sports, FIFA 23. From 2023, the game will be called EA Sports FC. The developer reports on its website that EA Sports FC will contain content that players are used to and that the new agreement between EA and FIFA on the name of the games is separate from other collaborations and licenses between the two parties.
