The weeks are slowly ticking by as we await news ahead of the release of FIFA 22 later this year.

After the delay for FIFA 21, when can you expect to see FIFA 22 released this year?

Find out more below.

Latest - Community TOTS

With no news on FIFA 22, we are fully focused on the hotly anticipated FIFA 21 TOTS promo that will likely kick off with the Community TOTS.

As you may have guessed, the Community Team of the Season is decided by the FIFA community.

You’ll be able to vote from a shortlist featuring the top performances around the world of football that have received a maximum of one performance-based special item in FUT 21.

Hopefully, we will have more news including a release date soon.

Release Date

FIFA 22 is still months away from release, so we do not have an official release date just yet.

FIFA 21 was slightly delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic, but this should not impact this year’s release date.

Judging by previous editions of the game, we are expecting FIFA 22 to be released in late September, potentially Friday, 24 September.

Unlike FIFA 21, we expect a demo to be released beforehand giving us a first taste of the new game.

Early Access

As ever, there will be several different ways to get your hands on the game early.

If you are an Ultimate Team fan, then the FUT Web & Companion App is usually released before the full game and allows you to take charge of your club early.

Other ways of getting early access to FIFA 22 include pre-orders, demo, beta testing and buying certain editions of the game.

Platforms

This will be the first FIFA game specifically optimized for the next gen consoles PS5 and Xbox Series X|S.

We can’t wait for the new game to arrive, and we have already been treated to some of the ‘next level’ graphics.

The game will also be released on PS4 and Xbox One too and will continue to be available on these consoles for some time.

FIFA 22 will also likely be available on PC Windows (Steam), Nintendo Switch and Google Stadia platforms.

Demo

There was no demo for FIFA 21, but we expect a demo to be released ahead of FIFA 22.

While the demo is rarely anything like the full game, it can still give an idea of the gameplay and graphics.

There will likely be a handful of teams available to use, usually made up from official partners of the game.

Ultimate Team

We expect Ultimate Team to remain the most popular game mode, but could we see any changes this year?

EA has hit a rocky patch in the last couple of weeks with the 'true cost' of the game coming into question.

However, it is still the most popular game mode by far on FIFA 21, so this is the mode we think EA will put the most effort into improving.

Editions

Will EA mix up the various editions of the game, or will we see the Standard, Champions, and Ultimate editions return once more.

Each edition comes with various bonuses and in-game perks, but which will suit you best?

Check out the FIFA 22 Editions.

Icons

There are currently 101 different Icon players available on FIFA 21 Ultimate Team, but will we see more added in FIFA 22?

There are several players we would love to see added, one of which is current Derby County manager and England record goal scorer Wayne Rooney.

Rooney received an End of an Era card on FUT 21 to celebrate his career as he has now transitioned into management.
