We're coming towards the end of the football season, which means we can soon look forward to a new campaign and the release of FIFA 24!
With EA and FIFA parting ways, the game as we know it will now be named EA Sports FC 24, but much of the experience that we know and love will stay the same.
Find out everything you need to know about FIFA 24 below and what the differences between it and EA Sports FC 24 will be.
FIFA 24 will be the next instalment of the football franchise, developed by FIFA itself.
The game that many of us know simply as FIFA and has been created by EA Sports is being rebranded after the split between the companies, as EA Sports FC 24.
It will effectively carry on the progress from the previous 30 years of the franchise, but under a different name, so those that love the FIFA experience will now be looking towards FC 24.
This does mean FIFA 24 and FC 24 will be competing for supremacy, which could see some brilliant new ideas and innovations brought into each title in order to draw the football gaming audience to their game.
FIFA 24 Developer
Fans of the footballing sim may be wondering who will actually be developing the new game.
Of course, FIFA 23 was developed by EA Sports, but that game marks the end of the relationship between the two companies.
FIFA is currently searching for a new developer following the end of its long-term deal with EA.
FIFA has not yet confirmed who will be developing the next title in their series FIFA 24.
As the name suggests, EA Sports FC 24 will be made by EA Sports.
With FIFA 24 not even in development as of yet, a release date for the new title has not yet been set.
As for EA Sports FC 24, no release date has been confirmed just yet, so we can only speculate on when the game will hit the shelves.
The last four FIFA editions were released on the following dates:
- FIFA 20 - 24 September 2019
- FIFA 21 - 9 October 2020
- FIFA 22 - 27 September 2021
- FIFA 23 - 27 September 2022
We expect EA Sports FC 24's release to follow a similar pattern and with those dates in mind, it will likely be released on Friday, 29 September 2023, in keeping with the FIFA titles that have gone before.
It's difficult to predict who will be on the cover of FIFA 24, with the developer not yet confirmed.
However, you can bet your bottom dollar that France international and Paris Saint-Germain striker Kylian Mbappe will be the cover star for EA Sports FC's first game.
The 24-year-old has taken on the role of the face of the franchise and has been the cover star for the past two editions of FIFA.
We expect FIFA 24 to be made available on all major platforms.
As far as EA Sports FC goes, we can be pretty certain that the game will be released on all major platforms too.
This includes old-generation and new-generation consoles.
You can expect both FIFA 24 and EA Sports FC to be playable on the following platforms:
- PlayStation 4
- PlayStation 5
- Xbox One
- Xbox Series X|S
- Nintendo Switch
We have received no news on whether FIFA 24 will include an Ultimate Team game mode.
However, despite plenty of concerns among the FIFA community, we now have confirmation that EA will be bringing their own version of Ultimate Team to EA Sports FC.
Perhaps we could finally see certain long-awaited features introduced to Ultimate Team that the userbase has been asking for for years.
First of all, we'd love to see more promo player variety. There has been far too much recycling of the same old cards within promos over the past few years and player upgrades are becoming too big, too soon.
The main idea behind this is to achieve a more steady power throughout the year.
We'd also like to see a new gameplay meta in EA Sports FC, with the community loving this year's title not being focused purely on pace.
