FIFA 2K24 potentially on the cards after Take-Two pays tribute to 'great' FIFA brand

Take-Two is the parent company behind Rockstar Games, Private Division and 2K, the latter of which publishes sports game series such as WWE 2K and NBA 2K.

When speaking to IGN, Take-Two Interactive caught the attention of gamers across the country when describing FIFA as a "great brand" with "incredible clout".

These comments arose after FIFA's high-profile split with EA last week after almost 30 years and have raised an interesting question amongst the FIFA community - could FIFA 2K24 be on the cards?

As far as we understand, FIFA 23 will still go ahead as normal, but this will likely be the final 'EA Sports FIFA' title in the franchise.

So, with EA Sports FC 24 looks likely, unless Take-Two has something to say about it...
