Latest - FIFA 22's new engine

FIFA 17 was the first game to make use of EA’s Frostbite Engine.

As we near the climax of FIFA 21, frustrations players had with the game and the engine all those years ago are still prevalent today.

However, a new console generation could come with a fresh engine for EA’s sports endeavours.


EA opted to stick to the Frostbite Engine for FIFA 21, as well as other recent games such as Need for Speed Heat, due to the COVID-19 outbreak.

This could signal that a new engine is waiting in the wings or at the very least being prepped for the new console generation.

A new engine for EA's next title could mean improvements to FIFA of an unprecedented degree.


Will we see a FIFA 22 Demo? We fully expect to, despite the heartbreak of last year's cancellation.

Things should be back to normal, with a limited game featuring some of EA's partner clubs.

The game modes will be limited like always, but it should still be our first chance to get a feel for the new game.

The Demo should be available on all platforms too, so get ready for PS5 and Xbox Series X|S gameplay.

FIFA 22 Release Date

Unsurprisingly there has been no word on when FIFA 22 will officially be released, but we can have a pretty accurate guess.

Will Kylian Mbappe continue as FIFA 22 Cover Star this year?
