THE highly anticipated Fifa 23 release is finally here.
The football game will be released on Friday 30th September 2022. But will Fifa 23 be the last Fifa game ever? Here’s what we know:
Is Fifa 23 the last Fifa game?
The first Fifa video game was released in 1993 and has been popular with sports fans ever since.
The 1993 Fifa version became the best-selling game of the year, selling over half a million copies.
Since then, the game has sold up to 26 million copies a year.
However, the future of the game has been in question due to disputes between the game’s developer, EA Sports, and Fifa.
EA Sports has always developed the Fifa game, but the game developer has announced that it will relinquish its Fifa license due to financial disagreements.
Fifa wanted to double its payments from EA to £122.6m a year, but the game developer didn’t think it was appropriate.
As a result, Fifa 23 will be the last Fifa game as we know it.
However, it will not be the last part of the series.
EA has announced that they will be developing a new football game called EA Sports FC.
EA has promised fans more information in the summer of 2023.
However, Fifa has also announced that they will release their own football game in rivalry with EA Sports FC.
Responding to EA’s announcement, Fifa President Gianni Infantino said: “I can assure you that the only authentic, real game called FIFA will be the best for gamers and football fans.”
In the summer of 2023, fans will have the choice between buying Fifa 24 or the new game EA Sports FC.
How many Fifa games have been released?
FIFA 23 will be the 30th iteration of the video game since its debut.
Since the game’s release in 1993, it has grown to become the most popular sports video game of all time.
In 2021, the total revenue from the Games was over £705m.
What’s new in FIFA 23?
Every year the release of a new game attracts so many buyers because of the exciting new features they add, and 2022 is no different.
There are many new additions to Fifa 23 as EA Sports and Fifa join forces for their last-ever partnership game.
A notable change to the game is the addition of women’s soccer.
Both the French and English women’s leagues are available to play.
There will also be a World Cup mode in conjunction with the 2022 Fifa World Cup taking place in Qatar.
New clubs and leagues will also be added with the new version.
Juventus will finally return to the game after previously being unable to unveil it due to licensing issues.
EA Sports has also promoted its new HyperMotion 2 technology with 6,000 special animations to mimic realistic player movements during a game.
Finally, an Ultimate Team Chemistry feature will be added to the game.
Previously, players in Ultimate Team only had chemistry with players who were positioned close to them on the field in the starting lineup.
For example, right-back and left-back players could not contribute to the chemistry of a FUT team due to their distance on the pitch.
However, in Fifa 23, players can achieve chemistry even if they are far apart on the pitch.
