FIFA series to be known as EA Sports FC!

In case you missed it, back in October 2021, EA filed a trademark for a new trending term called ‘EA Sports FC’. Reports revealed that it was because of the publisher reviewing its licensing agreement with the governing body, FIFA itself.

And recently, this ongoing news gained a possible confirmation as well. Because an account, that goes by the name Onion00048 on Twitter, shared a link to a recently filed trademark. When you go to this link, it mentions that EA has filed the trademark with the name ‘EA SPORTS FC’ earlier this month.

However, there’s no official announcement, so far, from Electronic Arts on anything related to this news. Either they are still negotiating with FIFA or waiting for a proper reveal in the coming months.

But it looks like the next game, currently being called FIFA 23, will also have a different name if EA decides to introduce an overhaul.
