FIFA plans direct rival game to EA Sports FC

What exactly is FIFA planning?

According to the Football Association, FIFA is currently in talks with leading game publishers, media companies and investors to develop a new FIFA football simulation game for 2024.

This would then be in direct competition with the successor EA Sports FC planned by EA.

Before that, there should already be several other games, which, however, should not be simulations.

According to FIFA, these are already in production and should appear in the third quarter of this year.

The first title is said to be a tailor-made gaming experience for the upcoming FIFA World Cup in Qatar.

They are also in talks with publishers about other projects for the 2023 Women's World Cup.

FIFA President: Only games with the official FIFA license are credible for football fans

Who loses from the split - EA or FIFA?

For FIFA President Gianni Infantino, the answer to that question is clear.

In a very clear statement, he assured that the only true and authentic game bears the name of FIFA and is the best game for gamers and football fans.

In addition, only games with the official FIFA license are credible for football fans.

The FIFA name is the only global and original title.

FIFA 23, FIFA 24, FIFA 25 and FIFA 26 etc - the constant is the name FIFA and it will last forever and remain the best game.

The interactive gaming and esports sector is on a path of growth and diversification, Infantino continued.

FIFA's strategy is to make the best of all future options and offer gamers, fans, members and partners a wide range of products and opportunities.

End of a Long-Term Partnership - Why is FIFA 22 the Last Joint Title of EA and FIFA?

When was the separation of EA and FIFA announced?

In October 2021, EA announced for the first time that it was toying with the idea of ​​renaming the FIFA franchise.

Back then, there was already a dispute over the naming rights with the football association FIFA.

Negotiations between the two partners stalled, according to a report in The New York Times, as EA demanded more rights while FIFA demanded a doubling of the license fee.

Now it is clear - FIFA 22 is the last joint title of EA and FIFA.

Only recently, EA CEO Andrew Wilson is said to have announced in an internal meeting that EA is now ready to detach itself from the FIFA license and can even develop further without it.

He explained to the staff that the FIFA license would have actually only hampered EA's ambitions for the soccer game series.

Many football clubs have also already announced that they want to remain loyal to the developer.
