Facing EA Sports FC, FIFA wants to be confident for its first separate game from Electronic Arts. Says Gianni Infantino.
The war is on. Following the acquisition of the FIFA brand directly by the Fédération Internationale de Football Association, EA finds itself without the original brand that made the success of its football game and will this year change the name of its project to EA Sports FC. A blow for Electronic Arts, because their golden egg hen has completely changed its name and could well lose a lot of fans in favor of the competition, which will feature the “real” FIFA game offered directly by the international football federation.
Gianni Infantino trusts the continuity of the FIFA license
Until Gianni Infantino, the president of the Federation, with his little statement to set fire to the powder: ” The new FIFA game and the games that will follow (FIFA 25, 26, 27, etc.) will always be the best digital games for any boy or girl. Very soon we will announce news“. A direct challenge approach compared to EA, which has always taken care of the license until now, and which will be forced to offer a game without the name that has made it successful.
This statement from Infantino is also in line with his statements from last year: The name FIFA is the only original title. FIFA 23, 24, 25, 26… The constant is the name and it will always be the best football simulator“. Suffice to say that Gianni Infantino wants to be very confident in the future. One thing is certain: This new competition could push Electronic Arts to review its billing card for EA Sports FC, just to get out of the slump that has characterized the license for years now.
