As some of you already know, EA stopped using the FIFA name on its football simulation games after FIFA 23’s release. The team was already preparing to release its 2024 title with its own name, and it was revealed as EA Sports FC. The game was in the making for a while, and now the team is ready for the next step. There are still not many details about how EA will continue without having the name-right benefit of FIFA, but one thing is certain now: the release date. The games are usually released in September, and now there’s a leaked release date for EA Sports FC.
EA Sports FC Release Date Revealed by Leaker
According to the trusted leaker billbil-kun, EA will start early access for the game on September 22. That will be available only for those who bought the Ultimate version, and the Standard version pre-orders will have to wait for the release. The release date for everyone is September 29.
EA Sports FC isn’t expected to be very different from the FIFA games we are used to. The changes will probably include different names and songs, but the gameplay will stay the same. FIFA announced that they would release their own football game, just like EA’s FIFA titles so far. It’s unknown who will develop the new game, but there will be a new competitor in the market, and that could be a threat to EA Sports FC.
It’s worth noting that the reported date isn’t certain yet. We expect to hear new details about the release date and the game itself from EA. The studios are likely preparing to announce the game officially in July, so the new details shouldn’t be far away.
