FIFA and EA Sports end their partnership, the video game to disappear; FIFA 23 will be the final edition


ZURICH — Video game FIFA is set to disappear after the maker failed to strike a new licensing deal with world soccer’s governing body.

Instead, EA Sports FC will be introduced from 2023 after the company creates the final game in partnership with FIFA later this year.

EA has been producing a FIFA game for around three decades and its loving association with fans around the world helped the Zurich-based organization’s brand when it was tarnished amid a wave of arrests of football officials in 2015.

For many, FIFA means a game rather than an institution of sports policy. Now, FIFA will have to look for new video game opportunities beyond EA.

“We are grateful for our many years of great partnership with FIFA,” said EA CEO Andrew Wilson. “The future of global football is very bright, and fans around the world have never been stronger. We have an incredible opportunity to put EA SPORTS FC at the heart of the sport and bring even more innovative and authentic experiences. to growing football spectators.”
