EA announced that the release of FIFA 22 was a record for the franchise. In the first two weeks, 9.1 million people tried the novelty, who managed to create 7.6 million teams in the Ultimate Team. A total of 460 million matches were played.
However, the most interesting was the public statement about the possible renaming of the football simulator. We are exploring the idea of renaming our football video games. This means that we are reviewing the agreement with FIFA on the use of the brand. From the outside, it looks like virtual FIFA is becoming more popular than the football federation itself, and EA doesn't really want to share the glory.
In addition, the publisher is constantly trying to find new partnerships - and beyond the framework of agreements with FIFA. The future of football is brighter than ever. Our goal is to make sure that we use every opportunity to continue releasing the best interactive football simulator. Thank you for your support!
