Gianni Infantino tries to convey confidence in the future of the FIFA franchise. The president of the organization has reiterated that the brand will continue to move forward and consolidate a firm opposition to EA Sports FC, which will be the successor of those who were previously its developers.

"The new FIFA game - the FIFA 25, 26, 27 and so on - will always be the best egame for any girl or boy," Infantino declared during his speech at the Rwanda Congress. "we will have news on this very soon." At the moment it is not known which studio will take the reins of the project, although the president promises that we will know the details soon.

From FIFA to EA Sports FC

FIFA as we knew it during these years will be renamed EA Sports FC. It will be next July when the first details of the project will be shown to the public. The structure, modes and gameplay will be adapted to the new brand, without changing one bit the content that has always been offered. Of course, without the World Cup and the tournaments organized by FIFA.

When the move was announced, Infantino responded with a message similar to the one he shared today: I can assure you that the only authentic, real game that has the FIFA name will be the best one available for gamers and football fans.” At the time, he noted that they were in negotiations with "leading publishers, media companies and investors" to create the new simulator.
