Electronic Arts took steps to ensure that their exclusive FIFA license would be going nowhere on Tuesday. The AAA company not only extended its license with UEFA for multiple years but announced that it would also be expanding its FIFA title through multiple mobile offerings. Additionally, EA’s free-to-download PC game FIFA Online 4 will be available in more than 15 new countries, namely Russia, Poland, and Turkey.
EA also announced FIFA 21 will be available on Stadia March 17.
“Our vision is to create the most authentic, social and connected football experience by bringing our games to more devices, more countries, and more fans around the world,” said EA Sports VP DJ Jackson in a statement.
FIFA Franchise Multi-year Extension
According to EA, the six new mobile offerings are currently in development with no date set in stone for when gamers will be able to get their hands on them. More details will be announced at a later time, but fans are told to expect a range of game types from arcade to simulation.
“This is the world’s game, and EA Sports is doing everything we can do to further connect players, athletes, clubs and leagues and grow the love of football, globally,” Jackson continued.
FIFA has been one of the most popular titles globally since first launching as FIFA International Soccer in 1993.
Anyone looking to scoop up FIFA 21 for next gen consoles can currently buy a copy for $20 at Best Buy.
