Release Date

EA Sports FC will likely see a release date on Friday, 29 September 2023, in keeping with the FIFA titles that have gone before.

It is unclear whether EA is looking to make the switch to a subscription model though, so it could arrive as soon as the deal with FIFA has expired.

EASFC - July 2023

There is very little information available surrounding the new EA Sports FC title, with more info not arriving until July 2023!

EA's release did contain the words "Join the Club" which could allude to the subscription model mentioned above.

EA also released the following in its official statement:

"EA SPORTS FC will allow us to realize this future and much more…but not before we deliver our most expansive game ever with our current naming rights partner, FIFA, for one more year."

Game Modes

Without any information, we can only speculate as to which game modes EA Sports FC will feature.

Ultimate Team is the big moneymaker for EA, so that is a guarantee.

We hope to see a vastly improved Pro Clubs and Career Mode in EASFC, but this remains unlikely due to the popularity and subsequent focus on Ultimate Team.

VOLTA and Career Mode could fall by the wayside as they offer less monetary value to the game.

Streaming Service

Is EA making its first strides into the football streaming service arena?

EA has already announced a groundbreaking multi-year partnership with Spain's LaLiga, which includes naming rights, in-game integrations, and broadcasting highlights!

EA already has strong affiliations with the Premier League, Bundesliga, Ligue 1, and Serie A, so broadcasting deals with these leagues look on the cards.

Fierce Competition

The split between EA and FIFA has been well-documented, but they are not the only two players competing to be at the top of the football-video game table.

Konami's eFootball is beginning to show signs of life, while new games such as GOALS, UFL, and Football Manager will also hope to be in the mix.
