Rumor: FIFA becoming EA Sports FC and FIFA comes with its own game
According to a rumor, FIFA will be called EA Sports FC in the future, which stands for Electronic Arts Sports Football Club.
FIFA will be called EA Sports FC in the future, which stands for Electronic Arts Sports Football Club. Also the organization FIFA is coming up with its own football game. So says insider Jeff Grubb on the Grubbsnax podcast.
Electronic Arts no longer wants to pay FIFA billions to use its name. According to Grubb, FIFA believes EA owes the success of the football game to the name of FIFA. However, EA thinks that success is due to gameplay. According to Grubb, FIFA wants to compete with the known FIFA name and make its own game.
It is not yet clear whether the 2022 football game will be called FIFA 23 for now, or if it will already be renamed EA Sports FC. It probably won’t be long before we get the official information.
In any case, the information will not be in EA’s own presentation because EA Play Live will not happen in 2022. EA will wait to provide information until the games are ready for it.
