FIFA 22 currently has plenty of promotions for us to keep busy with, but we’re turning our attention to the future to see what FIFA 23 has in store for us.
The 2022/23 season will be a very special year, with the World Cup in Qatar in November for the men, then the Women’s World Cup in Australia and New Zealand in July.
Take a look at what we know about the FIFA 23 release below and how it will cover some of the biggest events on the sporting calendar.
Latest – World Cup Content Confirmed
EA has officially announced that FIFA 23 will be the last in the series, with EA Sports FC taking over in summer 2023.
As part of the announcement, EA has confirmed that World Cup content will be included in FIFA 23.
“We are committed to ensuring that the next FIFA is the best ever, with more features, game modes, World Cup content, clubs, leagues, competitions and players than any other FIFA title.”
Exciting times, FIFA fans!
It’s still a long way off, so we don’t have an official release date for FIFA 23, but we still have a good idea of when to expect.
FIFA 22 was fully launched on friday 1 october 2021so if EA follows the same trend, then Friday, September 30, 2022 could be our FIFA 23 release date.
Expect to be able to access the game sooner than that through a possible beta or demo, then early access and the web app.
world cup year
Both men’s and women’s tournaments will be catered for in the game, with a separate game mode expected to be available.
FIFA 18 was the last game to feature a World Cup mode, which was released as free DLC and included all 32 participating teams and 12 stadiums.
We would expect a similar DLC release with FIFA 23, with the men’s tournament scheduled for monday november 21and the upcoming women’s tournament Thursday July 20, 2023.
Although women’s national teams have been included in the game since FIFA 16, you can only use them in kick-off mode, so FIFA 23 should be the most inclusive version yet.
