EA set to launch FIFA 22 on brand new engine

With fans already looking ahead to FIFA 22 on Next-Gen consoles, we take an in-depth look at whether EA's next title will have a brand new engine.

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?

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

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

FIFA 22 is predicted to be available to pre-order from late June 2021.

Anyone who pre-orders FIFA 22 will possibly get the chance to play the game 3 days in advance.

Plus, pre-ordering the game will entitle you to free pre-order packs which will help kick start your Ultimate Team.
