FIFA Engaging Leading Game Publishers For New FIFA Simulation Title in 2024

In response to the latest news on EA officially changing the name of its FIFA series in 2023, FIFA president Gianni Infantino had this to say.

“I can assure you that the only authentic, real game that has the FIFA name will be the best one available for gamers and football fans. The FIFA name is the only global, original title. FIFA 23, FIFA 24, FIFA 25 and FIFA 26, and so on – the constant is the FIFA name and it will remain forever and remain THE BEST.”

“The interactive gaming and esports sector is on a path of unrivalled growth and diversification. FIFA’s strategy is to ensure we can make the most of all future options and ensure a wide range of products and opportunities for gamers, fans, member associations and partners.”

FIFA is currently in talks with major game publishers, media groups, and investors about creating a new FIFA simulation game for 2024. Several new non-simulation games are now in development and will be released in the third quarter of this year.

EA will officially change the name of the FIFA series to EA Sports FC in 2023.

Everything you love about our games will be part of EA SPORTS FC – the same great experiences, modes, leagues, tournaments, clubs and athletes will be there. Ultimate Team, Career Mode, Pro Clubs and VOLTA Football will all be there.

We are committed to ensuring the next FIFA is our best ever, with more features, game modes, World Cup content, clubs, leagues, competitions, and players than any FIFA title before.

  1. Hopefully we get a stand alone World Cup game like during the 360/PS3 era. I hated how they made the 2018 World Cup as downloadable content in FIFA 18.
    "Pay us 1 billion dollars over the next four years and develop a game for us that can compete with the games that have been around for almost 30 years."
    I'll believe it when I see it. This has Axis football written all over it... if they're lucky lol.

    Hot off the EA Sports FC news...
    FIFA is currently engaging with leading game publishers, media companies and investors in regard to the development of a major new FIFA simulation football game title for 2024.
    A number of new non-simulation games are already under production and will launch during the third quarter of this year.

    I'd be happy to review these new titles as they come out if you're looking for people again.

    I can't decide if FIFA is asking for too much or if EA are being stingy. I mean, EA has the cash and then some

    To just throw away 250-300M per year on a name that doesn't come with anything? You realize they're already paying hundreds of millions for all the other football licenses involved, right?
    The whole thing is kind of weird. Game developers can challenge EA or Konami all they want right now! They don't need FIFA, unless they're solely interested in World Cup games in 2026 and beyond.

    As much as it pains me to defend EA I blame FIFA completely! EA still has the rights to UEFA EPL La Liga Bundesliga MLS the players rights etc… FIFA's license includes the FIFA brand name (mired in scandals) and the World Cup (which EA still gets to use for Qatar) so FIFA's demands to renew the license are ludicrous!

    Some gamers think that companies got all that cash on hand by overpaying for four letters and a tournament mode that only happens once every four years.
    Like EA doesn’t budget.
