The FUT Birthday Twin concept sees two versions of the same player releases at the same time, one with five-star skill moves and the other with a five-star weak foot.

We now know that the FUT Birthday Twin items will arrive as part of a mini-release.

The FUT Birthday Twin cards will be released on Sunday, 26 March at the usual time of 1pm ET / 6pm BST.


With the FIFA 23 game cycle in a bit of a lull right now, fans are beginning to wonder when the next title in the series will be released.
