EA Plans to Rename FIFA Game!

The Federation Internationale de Football Association or better known as FIFA has indeed been quite attached to the name of the game that Electronic Arts has developed over the years. FIFA itself is present as a rival to Konami’s PES.

Instead of continuing to try to compete with PES, Electronic Arts and FIFA are rumored to be going their separate ways in the near future. Which means that EA will no longer use the FIFA name in their soccer games for so long.

According to rumors, FIFA is planning to make their own soccer game later. EA and FIFA have been partners since 1993 in developing soccer games. Since then, both EA and FIFA have benefited greatly from this franchise.

Meanwhile, to maintain the FIFA name, the Electronic Arts must routinely pay a license fee every 4 years. According to reports The New York Timesthis license fee has been doubled by FIFA from USD 500 million to USD 1 billion.

This large enough value became one of the triggers for the separation of EA and FIFA. What is your opinion about this? Give your feedback.
