FIFA president revealed that they are developing a new soccer game

May 31, 2024 by No Comments

Recently, FIFA President, Gianni Infantino, took to a stage and revealed that the organization is working with new partners to develop a brand new ‘e-game’ in 2022 that will boast the lost FIFA branding of Electronic Arts. For thirty years, EA has worked. In the FIFA franchise, it produces top-tier soccer titles that are acclaimed around the world, but from 2023, the company will drop the FIFA name and change it to ‘EA Sports FC’.

‘Hundreds of millions of children’

In a bold statement, Gianni Infantino said:

We develop a new e-game, because the football simulation game is called FIFA. For hundreds of millions of children around the world, when they play a football simulation game, they play FIFA. It cannot be given any other name.

Infantino confirmed that FIFA is working with new partners to create the latest game, but no one knows what it will look like or how it will work. It already has plenty of competition in the space, with almost the entire audience happily switching to EA Sports FC following the game’s rebrand. Konami is also still in the field with the eFootball line of games.

Infantino spoke highly of the not-yet-existent game, insisting it was ‘the best’ because it aligns with ‘everything (they) do’ at FIFA.

Does the world need a new soccer game? Is there room for a fresh title alongside EA Sports FC and eFootball?
