We all are aware how much of a hype and craze football holds both online and offline. People who understand the game just cannot stay away from any piece of news or information attached with it. Along with that, even the minor facts, games, theories and more become extremely essential for the fans. The sport feels like an intense religion to the one who understands.
FIFA is one of the leading football video game series across the world. It is published by EA sports and developed by more than one production house. The first and the foremost release of the game was made in 1993 under the title ‘FIFA International Soccer’. Some of the top platforms that the game releases on include Sega Genesis, Game Gear, Nintendo GameCube, PlayStation (including 2,3,4,5, etc.), Android, Xbox, Xbox one, etc.
Going back to its history, the game’s major launches and growth were first seen in the 1900s. Then in the 2000s, editions like FIFA 2001, FIFA Football 2002, FIFA Football 2003 and more came out. Later in the decade of 2010, editions from FIFA 10 to FIFA 19 were also seen. The 2020s has FIFA 20, FIFA 21 and FIFA 22 till now. The most recent and latest launch was made in October 2021 of the 22nd edition of the game.
When do we get a release date?
While months and weeks of confusion went among the fans, the game finally got released on the 1st of October 2021 grandly. Talking of the 23rd edition, the release date in several news reports is somewhere around October 2021 or November 2021. But as the 22nd edition has been released in the same year, it is quite difficult to assume that another edition would come up this quickly. Some fans and professional news reporters also state that EA Sports might break its traditional rule of following the yearly release. This is exactly why so much havoc is being created among the football lovers.
On the one hand, 22nd edition of FIFA came out to be a huge hit, 23rd edition seems to be even more awaited. There are some crazy rumours surrounding it too. This includes access to play the game for free and more. We are yet to confirm this piece of news. Coming back to the release date, it should be assumed that practically we might witness the release next year. But if FIFA for real chooses to break its own norms, then we all might get luckier.
News & Rumours
There is also some piece of news floating around the internet about the clash between the governing body of football and EA Sports. It is also being assumed that this might be the reason for the doubt of further release. A possibility of the end of the complete series might also take place. But with such a legacy, this is extremely difficult to believe. A supporting statement and scenario for the above piece of news is that during certain events and talks, EA Sports said that they have renewed the partnership with FIFpro but they are certainly working for other football related games and stuff in future. Only time will let us know if the game will actually come to life or not. Until then, let us all celebrate and say cheers to the lovely FIFA series.
