FIFA 22 will likely be released between Friday, 24 September and Friday, 8 October, 2021, judging by the release in previous years.

Will FIFA 22 have a new engine?

FIFA 17 was the first game to make use of EA’s Frostbite Engine.

As we near the climax of FIFA 21, frustrations players had with the game and the engine all those years ago are still prevalent today.

However, a new console generation could come with a fresh engine for EA’s sports endeavours.

EA opted to stick to the Frostbite Engine for FIFA 21, as well as other recent games such as Need for Speed Heat, due to the COVID-19 outbreak.

This could signal that a new engine is waiting in the wings or at the very least being prepped for the new console generation.

A new engine for EA's next title could mean improvements to FIFA of an unprecedented degree.

When can I buy FIFA 22?

If you are desperate to get your hands on FIFA 22 then pre-ordering the game will be your best bet.
