Rumors about the next FIFA video game from EA Sports, dubbed FIFA 23, have been circulating for a while now.
One of the most recognizable and successful video game franchises ever is the FIFA video game series, developed and released by EA Sports in 1993 with the launch of FIFA International Soccer on Sega Mega Drive. FIFA 22, the series’ most recent installment, was released on October 1, 2021.
According to EA, FIFA 22 has been played in more than 200 countries since its release, with an average of 89 million matches played per day, 46 trillion minutes played, and a total of 5 billion goals scored in the 22 days following its release.
EA has also stated that FIFA 22 was the top-selling game in the Western world in the calendar year of 2021, according to the company.
According to various reports and leaks, EA Sports’ FIFA video game series will include cross-play, a World Cup mode, and women’s football in the upcoming edition.
EA Sports FIFA video game series has also been rumored to be coming to an end, following public negotiations and comments between EA and the FIFA international governing body.
Fifa 23 Is the Name of the Upcoming Installment in Ea Sports’ Fifa Series
As previously reported by VGC, EA Sports CEO Andrew Wilson told employees in an internal meeting that the FIFA brand and license have been an “impediment” to EA Sports in recent years, according to Mirror Football.
FIFA 23 is expected to be released on Friday, September 30, 2022, by EA Sports, the publisher of the FIFA video game series. FIFA 21 is an exception to this rule because it was released on September 30th, as is customary for EA Sports releases.
Crossplay Is Said to Be Included in Fifa 23
For the first time in the history of the game, FIFA 23 is rumored to feature crossplay between gamers on Xbox, PlayStation, and PC.
Xbox, PlayStation, and PC users will be able to compete against each other in all game modes, according to Xfire. A FIFA 22 Ultimate Team transfer market for all platforms is not stated in the report, so we don’t know for sure how many FIFA 22 Ultimate Team transfer markets will be there.
EA provided the following statement in response to Mirror Football’s inquiry about the aforementioned report.
World Cup Mode Is Expected to Be Included in Fifa 23
FIFA 23 is expected to include both the men’s and women’s FIFA World Cups, according to Mirror Football. A few months after the anticipated release of the new game, the men’s 2022 FIFA World Cup will take place in Qatar on November 21, 2022.
It was back in May 2018 that EA Sports released a free 2018 FIFA World Cup DLC for FIFA 18, which included the 32 participating teams and 12 stadiums from the tournament.
This year’s FIFA Women’s World Cup will be held in Australia and New Zealand, with the tournament beginning on July 20, 2023. Players have been unable to use the female athletes in their national teams in the kick-off mode of FIFA 22 because the game’s most popular mode, FIFA Ultimate Team, has yet to include female athletes.
Women’s Football Is Expected to Be Given More Prominence in Fifa 23
The fact that female athletes from national teams are currently the only ones that can be used by FIFA players on the game could be changing in FIFA 23.
Women’s football leagues, such as the FA Women’s Super League, FLYERALARM Frauen-Bundesliga, and the National Women’s Soccer League, will be included in FIFA 23 for the first time in the video game’s long history, according to Xfire and Tom Henderson.
For the First Time Ever, Ea Sports’ Fifa Series Will End With Fifa 23
If what EA CEO Andrew Wilson said to EA Sports employees in a recent meeting about the FIFA brand and license is true, it’s the clearest indication to date that the relationship between EA and FIFA may be ending soon, as reported by Mirror Football via VGC.
The FIFA brand has more meaning as a video game than as a governing body of soccer, according to comments provided anonymously to VGC by Wilson, who told employees in a November internal meeting that “the FIFA brand has more meaning as a video game than it does as a governing body of soccer.”
Wilson claimed in the same article that FIFA’s license was an ‘abuse of power.’ “The growth of EA Sports has been an “obstacle” because “FIFA is just the name on the box, but they’ve precluded our ability to be able to branch into the areas that players want.”
Wilson’s remarks show that he believes EA could benefit from ending its relationship with FIFA, which would be a seismic shift for EA, FIFA, and game enthusiasts.
As early as October 7, 2021, EA released a statement stating that they were considering whether or not to renew their licensing agreement with FIFA, which could prompt a name change for one of the most popular video game franchises in history.
“As we look ahead, we’re also exploring the idea of renaming our global EA SPORTS football games,” Said the EA Statement.
“This means we’re reviewing our naming rights agreement with FIFA, which is separate from all our other official partnerships and licenses across the football world.”
“The future of football is very big and very bright. Our priority is to ensure we have every opportunity to continue delivering the world’s greatest interactive football experiences.“
Fifa issued a statement on October 15, 2021, hinting at the possibility of making their own game and making fun of EA Sports.
“FIFA will adopt a new commercial positioning in gaming and eSports to ensure that it is best placed to make decisions that benefit all football stakeholders,” said FIFA in a statement on their website.”
