It looks like FIVE brand new Icons could be on the way in FIFA 22

FIFA 21 still has plenty to offer, with the Festival of FUTball promo in full swing in Ultimate Team.

However, FIFA 22 is coming over the horizon!

And it looks like we will see some brand new Icons be added to EA's next release.

We cannot confirm whether this is completely accurate yet, but @FutWatch was spot on with his Team of the Season leaks.

The Icons supposedly have three versions each and are as follows:

England’s record goalscorer has now officially retired, paving the way for Wazza to join the ICON ranks.

We think Rooney will rank pretty highly among other Icons in FIFA 22.

When will FIFA 22 be announced?

EA Sports announced FIFA 21 at its EA Play event, so it's possible that EA could do the same for FIFA 22.

However, there is also a distinct possibility that FIFA 22 could be announced earlier than that, at the E3 event, scheduled to run from Saturday, 12 June to Tuesday, 15 June.

Check out all the details you need to know about the E3 event here.

EA could potentially release a teaser trailer at E3, before officially launching at their own EA Play event in July.

Will we see a FIFA 22 Demo?

Will we see a FIFA 22 Demo? We fully expect to, despite the heartbreak of last year's cancellation.

Things should be back to normal, with a limited game featuring some of EA's partner clubs.

The game modes will be limited like always, but it should still be our first chance to get a feel for the new game.

The Demo should be available on all platforms too, so get ready for PS5 and Xbox Series X|S gameplay.

When is FIFA 22 Demo coming out?

With a release date, hopefully, back to normal this year, we should see a demo come out in early September of 2021.
