FIFA 23 would be the last titles with the FIFA branding

EA Sports announced that the name of everyone's favourite football video game would be changing.

FIFA 22 and FIFA 23 would be the last titles with the FIFA branding, as FIFA 23 will incorporate several FIFA World Cup tournaments. That said, this decision would not be much of a surprise given the tumultuous negotiations in the last six months between EA and FIFA over the licensing of its annualized football franchise.

EA Sports announced that the name of everyone's favourite football video game would be changing.

With a press release being issued on their official website, that reads: "I want to start by thanking this incredible community of more than 150 million fans for helping build the world’s biggest football entertainment platform - EA SPORTS™ FIFA.

"After nearly 30 years of creating genre-defining interactive football experiences, we will soon begin an exciting new era.

"Next year, EA SPORTS FC will become the future of football from EA SPORTS."

"Everything you love about our games will be part of EA Sports FC - the same great experiences, modes, leagues, tournaments, clubs and athletes," EA Sports exec Cam Weber wrote. "Ultimate Team, Career Mode, Pro Clubs and Volta Football will all be there.

Over the last six months, EA has been mulling about changing the name of their FIFA franchise primarily due to FIFA allegedly demanding that EA pay $2.5 billion for the license over the next decade.

In late November, EA executive David Jackson said that the publisher doesn’t “foresee major risks” in changing the name. By then, EA had already trademarked the name “EA Sports F.C.” in preparation in case the licensing deal fell through.

The pair have a deal that is expect to run until the end of the Women's World Cup in summer 2023, and after that fans will have to get used to a new name for their favourite video game.
