The End of an Era
After 30 years of production and countless hours of gameplay, EA Games has announced that FIFA 23 will be the last game released under the FIFA brand. The next installment of the popular football simulator, due to be released this fall, will be renamed EA Sports FC. This decision marks the end of an era for FIFA fans around the world.
A New Beginning
In May 2022, EA announced that it was dropping the FIFA brand due to disagreements between the company's top management and the International Football Federation. The reasons for these disagreements remain unclear, but it is said that the disagreements were significant enough to prompt EA to make this drastic decision. The new name, EA Sports FC, may take some time to get used to, but EA Games assures fans that the gameplay will remain as exciting and realistic as ever.
The Legacy of FIFA
Despite the end of the FIFA brand, the legacy of the game will live on. FIFA has been an integral part of the gaming industry for the past three decades, with millions of fans around the world eagerly awaiting each new installment. From the early days of FIFA International Soccer to the latest release of FIFA 23, the game has become a staple of the sports gaming genre.
