Earlier today, Electronic Arts shocked the gaming world with the official announcement of its split with the football governing body, FIFA. However, with this news still settling in, the FIFA publisher released its financial report for Q4 and the fiscal year of 2022. Now, most of this stuff is a bunch of large numbers and highly intricate graphs; however, these reports hint at upcoming games EA has in store.
Two New Sports Titles
The graph below states that four new games plus PGA Tour are coming in Q4 of next year. In Electronic Arts fiscal year, Q4 is between January 1 and March 31. EA Sports PGA Tour was delayed earlier this year and is now slated for spring 2023. The other Sports Title could possibly be Skate 4.
Skate 4 has popped up every now and again with new trailers and sneak peeks of the game’s development. Developer Full Circle has stated that people have seen the game and that it’s launching soon. With the Dead Space Remake, Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order II, and possibly Skate 4, Electronic Arts want to kick off 2023 with a bang.
