The partnership between EA Sports and FIFA is coming to an end, with fans speculating on how that will affect the next instalment of the game. EA Sports FC 24 is expected to be the title of the next edition, and we can expect plenty of changes coming in the licensing department.

FIFA has also already announced they will be creating their own game. The goal is to become the best football game in the industry, which would subsequently dethrone EA Sports.

This can be great for the football video games industry. For the first time in many years, we might actually see EA Sports have some real competition. It will provide fans with more options when it comes to football games. Developers will also be forced to step up their game and deliver a great product.
