FIFA 23 Review: Isn''t Heartless Even Trying
The record-breaking launch may come as a surprise to EA, who will rename its franchise to EA Sports FC. The decision comes after a dispute between the FIFA federation and the publisher Electronic Arts, which was unsatisfactory. As per EA, the FIFA''s branding and licensing were becoming too costly, with the footballing agency requesting $1 billion every four years.
According to a VGC report, EA CEO Andrew Wilson was willing to drop the FIFA''s branding from its titles, posing a handicap. He stated that the FIFA''s only advantage gained from the game was the four letters on the box.
The running contract expires next summer, after which the game is rebranded to EA Sports FC, retaining the same experience. Our unique licensing portfolio of over 19,000+ players, 700+ teams, 100+ stadiums, and 30 leagues that we''ve continued to invest in for decades will still exist, according to the blog post.
Ted Lasso, who plays with AFC Richmond in a wild collaboration with Apple TV, was included in the game. This year''s FIFA also comes packaged with two Women''s leagues, support for cross-play, and promises a World Cup mode in time.
