The excitement for EA's next title is building, with the release date getting closer and closer!
If you've played FIFA over the last couple of years, you'll know all about the good old Piemonte Calcio.
EA's answer to Juventus has been in the game for the last two years, but could we see the Old Lady return for FIFA 22?
Latest - 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.
FIFA 22 will likely be released between Friday, 24 September and Friday, 8 October, 2021, judging by the release in previous years.
The reason that 'Juventus' hasn't featured in FIFA for the last two years is due to an exclusive deal that the Italian giants signed with Konami back in 2019.
The deal meant that Juventus were exclusively tied down to Konami and their PES franchise of games, which meant that whilst Juventus' players could feature in FIFA, EA were prohibited from using any part of the Juventus brand in their titles.
And thus Piemonte Calcio was born!
Will Juventus feature in FIFA 22?
Unfortunately, if you're hoping to see the famous black and white stripes back in FIFA 22, you better hope that Notts County get promoted!
The three-year deal that Juventus signed with Konami runs until September 2022, which means that there will be no Juventus in the next edition of the EA Sports title.
They will still feature - likely as their Piemonte Calcio alter ego - so there's no need to worry about a CR7-less FIFA title next year.
Unless another deal is struck in the meantime, Juventus will be back available in time for FIFA 23 but, in the world of exclusive deals, that could still be subject to change.
