Max Verstappen has teamed up with EA to bring more content to his games
Two-time Formula 1 world champion Max Verstappen has teamed up with publisher EA to bring more content to his games.
As part of the deal, he will create content for all games in EA’s broad portfolio.
He will also take on EA Sports as a sponsor for his races, including the EA logo on his car and above the chin area of his helmet.
Verstappen is known as an avid gamer. He plays F1 manager and takes part in virtual Formula 1 races.
He made comments about one of his teammates’ low F1 Manager 22 ratings during a race.
Verstappen recently competed in the Virtual Le Mans 24 Hours but retired after disconnects caused him to fall behind.
That didn’t stop his love of virtual racing and he recently installed an F1 simulator on his £12million private jet.
The F1 driver is a big fan of EA’s sports games library, which makes the partnership perfect.
He is said to be a big FIFA fan and has been spotted opening FIFA Ultimate Team (FUT) packs before races.
Codemasters, the developer of the officially licensed F1 games, is also owned by EA, and a new game will be released later this year.
Speaking of the partnership, Verstappen said: “Whether it’s playing games with my friends or staying competitive off the track, EA Sports has always been a huge part of my life.
“EA Sports is an icon for so many millions of fans and I’m proud to represent them in the 2023 season.”
We don’t know what kind of content Verstappen will create, but we’re excited to see what he can bring to EA games.
EA Sports issued a statement stating, “Max is a tenacious competitor and true champion who shares a deep love of gaming and gaming.
“As he makes Formula 1 history, we’re excited to partner with him as one of the best athletes in the world to bring more fans together through our EA Sports experiences.”
