LATEST - FIFA 23 Release Date Revealed?
Prolific journalist Tom Henderson has revealed - via exputer - that FIFA 23 will release on September 30th, 2022.
Having looked at previous years and assessing the terrain, there's every chance that this date could be spot on, with FIFA usually releasing in late September/early October.
If this report is correct, it could mean that we are only three months away from FIFA landing, with the countdown firmly on to the final collaboration between EA and FIFA.
With the next game edging ever closer, we could see an official announcement from EA sooner rather than later.
FIFA 22 was fully launched on Friday, 1 October 2021, so if EA follows the same trend, then Friday, 30 September 2022 could be our release date next year.
This would mean early access for pre-orders from Tuesday, 27 September for those who buy the Ultimate Edition of the game.
The 10-hour EA Play trial usually offers players a limited number of hours of gaming too and goes live even earlier than pre-orders so expect to see that around a week before the full launch.
Summer Games Fest no-show
Ahead of Summer Games Fest, plenty of rumours began to circulate that EA would be making an announcement regarding FIFA 23.
However, this did not come to fruition with EA Sports absent from the event, but we do expect an announcement soon!
FIFAUTeam is reporting that an official announcement about the release date will happen in the coming days, so keep your eyes peeled.
As we expected, FIFA 23 looks set to be released on Friday, 30 September, with FIFAUTeam already stating this as the official release date on their website.
They also state that there won't be any demo and that the first Team of the Week release will be on Wednesday, 21 September, the same day the EA Play Trial goes live.
There are plenty of release dates that you need to keep an eye out for, not just the full launch of the game!
The FUT Web & Companion App is always a big one as it is crucial to how you get started in Ultimate Team.
It is also a World Cup year, so we could see some exclusive content released towards the end of November.
With all that in mind, here are some of the key (predicted) dates for your diaries.
