Kylian Mbappe in FIFA 22
FIFA is undoubtedly one of the most popular franchises in the industry of video games. EA has been able to profit from this license year after year, but according to the latest rumors – which include alleged statements from the company’s CEO – this situation could take a 180 degree turn.
the streamer Jeff Grubbreporter and presenter of the show giant bombrevealed that in October last year, EA filed the mark EA Sports Soccer Club or EA Sports FC. This could indicate that the American company is starting to prepare the ground to continue the sports saga, but without the FIFA license. In addition, the company would negotiate with several of the Main football teams and leagues to maintain licenses for the use of their names and players.
These last movements can be considered as way to put pressure on FIFAso that the agency lowers the price it asks for the renewal of the license, which it considers too high for the benefits they get most years.
A FIFA developed by FIFA
For its part, FIFA is also moving. The organism updated its internal brands to add video games, which could indicate that they are planning to develop their own video games in-house.
It should be noted that this information is based on rumors and neither of the two involved has made an official statement about it, so you have to take it with a grain of salt.
