FIFA president says the company will release a new series of soccer games after the end of the partnership with Electronic Arts. See more information about the case
FIFA 25 may be the first game in the soccer franchise that Electronic Arts is not involved in, according to federation president Gianni Infantino. The statement came out of the leader’s mouth during his re-election announcement, along with other statements. In May 2022, EA already reported that it would not renew a 28-year agreement with the FIFA brand, so its soccer series will be called EA Sports FC. However, it is not yet known if the association intends to release its own game.
Even after that confirmation, the title shouldn’t come this year. Thus, it is enough to wait to understand if the name FIFA 25 refers to a launch in 2024, as was the franchise’s tradition until then, or to its own year. See below for more details on the case.
During a statement, the FIFA president had said that “the new FIFA game – FIFA 25, 26, 27 – etc. – will always be the best esport for any girl or boy”, referring to the arrival of games outside the association with EA. , later competing with EA Sports FC. However, it is not known exactly what the manager was referring to as “eGame”. So there is a possibility that it is a new title, but it focuses on esports competitions.
No further information on the upcoming game has been provided either, such as a possible release date. However, if the games in the saga continue with the custom as they are made by Electronic Arts -always with the numbering of the following year-. FIFA 25 could arrive in 2024.
