Well, EA has now since revealed when FIFA 22 Ultimate Team will finally kick off!
FIFA 22 Web App release date
As confirmed by the official EA website, the FUT Companion App, will launch for Web on Wednesday, 22 September and Mobile on Thursday, 23 September.
The latest that you will be able to use the FUT Companion App without logging into the full game is Sunday, 17 October.
EA has also revealed that this year we will see some new additions to FIFA Ultimate Team.
Featured TOTW items will give lesser related players (OVR 79 or lower) the chance to improve as FIFA 22 rolls on, so that they don't become unusable from November.
FIFA 22's FUT Heroes - legendary players from leagues around the world - had already been confirmed, but we now know that these players may receive "additional version as part of FUT 22 campaigns and programs" - so watch this space on that front.
The initial Heroes will arrive at launch from 1 October, and will remain in-game for the entirety of FUT 22.
Ones to Watch roll out
We knew the Ones to Watch promo was kicking on FIFA 22 Ultimate Team - and now we can get an understanding of how it will work.
Starting 1 October, if a OTW player wins five of their club's next 10 league games, they will receive a permanent +1 OVR upgrade - known as "Wins to Watch".
Not only that, because this year's transfer window was "astonishing" - six additional OTW items will be made available both Team 1 and Team - taking the overall number to 28 items/
Two groups of three OTW Items will join their respective Team through Mini Releases on Sundays.
