Coming as no surprise to anyone, EA Sports have extended their license agreement with FIFA until December 31, 2022.
The agreement extension will mean that EA Sports will maintain the exclusive rights to release FIFA simulation and management games. Furthermore, EA Sports also keeps the exclusive rights to release the official FIFA World Cup™ game and the rights to present and manage the FIFA Interactive World Cup.
Andrew Wilson, EA Sports’ executive vice president said;
“EA SPORTS released the first FIFA-branded football game back in 1993, and 20 years later our partnership with FIFA continues to be very strong… Our franchise has become the benchmark for quality and innovation in the sports videogame genre, and we look forward to many more years of our games carrying the prestigious FIFA name.”
So rest assured FIFA fans, EA Sports will continue to produce the official FIFA game for at least the next 9 years!
