EA Sports will rename their popular FIFA game series after they failed to extend their partnership with world football’s governing body.
The Athletic revealed in October that EA Sports were considering renaming their gaming series and it has now been revealed it will be called EA Sports FC from 2023.
EA Sports said in a statement: “After nearly 30 years of creating genre-defining interactive football experiences, we will soon begin an exciting new era.
“Next year, EA SPORTS FC will become the future of football from EA SPORTS. Alongside our 300+ license partners across the sport, we’re ready to take global football experiences to new heights, on behalf of all football fans around the world.
“Everything you love about our games will be part of EA SPORTS FC – the same great experiences, modes, leagues, tournaments, clubs and athletes will be there. Ultimate Team, Career Mode, Pro Clubs and VOLTA Football will all be there.”
EA Sports have been producing an annual version of the football video game since 1993, along with various spin-off editions.
It is one of the best-selling video game franchises of all time.
The first iteration of the gaming series was launched in 1993 under the title “FIFA International Soccer”.
The duo will link up to produce a FIFA game for next summer’s Women's World Cup but then the partnership will come to an end.
