FIFA 22 has received very positive reviews among players, as evidenced by the popularity results. Within a few days of the premiere, the game was played by more than 9 million people, who made up as many as 7.6 million Ultimate Teams. EA is also considering the possibility of renaming its popular series.
FIFA 22 with great results
Just six days after the premiere of FIFA 22, EA Sports boasted of the game’s sales results. The latest production of the American developer has reached more than 9 million players worldwide. This is the other time that millions have played in FIFÊ around the premiere. This confirms the dominance of this title on the sports simulation market.
Other impressive statistics too. According to EA Sports, players have already created 7.6 million teams in Ultimate Team mode. The number of matches played is even more impressive. According to the data, people around the world played 460 million matches, all within a few days after the premiere.
The end of FIFA as we know it
Besides the good news, EA Sports is also bringing to the community other, less expected news. The producer is considering changing the name of the world football games in the future. This means that FIFA’s naming rights agreement is under review, and is separate from all other official licenses and partnerships in world football. The first game with the word “FIFA” was created in 1994 and started the legendary series. It has since appeared on the pages of the Guinness Book of Records as the best-selling sports video game in history.
What does this mean for players? We don’t know yet. However, EA Sports, in an official announcement, ensured that it has a license for thousands of other products. Thanks to years of building our global franchise, we also know that authenticity is an essential part of the experience. This is why we dedicate so much energy to the collective strength of our more than 300 licensed partners. They give us access to more than 17,000 athletes from more than 700 teams, 100 stadiums and more than 30 championships around the world. We constantly invest in the most important partnerships and licenses for players, making our game the only place you can play in such popular competitions as the UEFA Champions League, UEFA Europe League, CONMEBOL Libertadores, Premier League, Bundesliga and LaLiga Santander. Our extensive partnership and licensed content system will allow us to continue delivering unparalleled authenticity to EA SPORTS football games now and for many years to come, we read.
