The release of EA's next title is not too far away now!
So, we're taking a look at what position Lionel Messi will be on FIFA 22.
What position is Messi on FIFA 22?
Messi's FIFA 21 base card was a Right-Wing position.
However, the Argentine played the majority of the 2020/21 season with Barcelona as a free-moving central attacker.
Messi also picked up a number of performance-based special cards as either a Centre Forward or Striker in FIFA 21.
So, we think that EA will change Messi's position in FIFA 22 to a Centre Forward (CF).
When is FIFA 22 coming out?
FIFA 22 is still a couple of months away from release, so we do not have an official release date just yet.
FIFA 21 was slightly delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic, but this should not impact this year’s release date.
Judging by previous editions of the game, we are expecting FIFA 22 to be released in late September, potentially Friday, 24 September.
Unlike FIFA 21, we expect a demo to be released beforehand giving us a first taste of the new game.
When is FIFA 22 Demo coming out?
With a release date, hopefully, back to normal this year, we should see a demo come out in early September of 2021.
With the expected release date of FIFA 22 being between Friday, 24 September and Friday, 8 October, the demo should arrive between Friday, 10 September and Friday, 24 September.
