FIFA 21 Is Coming to EA Play

It's absolutely massive, really. FIFA 21 is coming to Xbox Game Pass on May 6 thanks to the service's partnership with EA Play.

It's the first time a title from the series has been added to the service, or something similar before the next iteration of the game has been released.

This might not be your cup of tea, as it's a sports title, but this could signpost the fact that EA games will join Xbox's Game Pass earlier than we think in the future.

The FIFA games are being removed from Game Pass due to them being delisted on EA Play.

EA Play is available for free to Game Pass Ultimate subscribers, adding around 90-100 extra titles to the already stacked roster of games.

Due to them being older FIFA titles we can't imagine anyone will be missing them.

But, if you prefer the older titles, you can grab them used for as little as 50p on CEX.

When Will The Rest Of The Games Be Announced?

We usually see an announcement within the first few days of the month, and then sometimes again further into the month, depending on how many games are being added.
