Electronic Arts have filed a new patent that would seem to suggest the imminent change of name of FIFA, the famous football series that is the king of sales. Immediately after the launch of FIFA 22, Vice President Cam Weber stated that the studio was thinking about the change of name and a re-evaluation of the agreements with FIFA. A few days ago, the company registered the EA Sports FC (Electronic Arts Sports Football Club), which appears to be the new name chosen for the series.
EA filed the patent with the UK Intellectual Property Office on October 1, 2021, and with the European Union Intellectual Property Office three days later, on October 4. Cam Weber has already confirmed that EA will retain licenses for over 17,000 athletes, 700 soccer teams, 100 stadiums, and 30 soccer divisions, virtually all of the game’s content even in a name change.
Pending the official, we remind you that FIFA 22 is available on PS5, PS4, Xbox One, Xbox Series X / S, and PC. The series has sold 325 million copies since 1994 and aims to surpass 400 million in the next three years.
