FIFA 23 will be the last installment in the FIFA series alongside EA Sports, as next year the famous soccer simulator will be the first installment in a new series called EA Sports FC. Perhaps for this reason and for all the novelties that Electronic Arts has wanted to introduce in the game, its launch has been extremely well received by fans, and in fact it has broke a record within the FIFA franchise. In USA, for now in its first days it has beaten its two previous deliveries in sales.
As EA points out in a press release, FIFA 23 has had the biggest launch ever for a FIFA game, with more than 10.3 million players in its first week alone. Speaking about this huge achievement, Nick WlodykaSenior Vice President and General Manager of EA Sports FC, said:
“The response from our fans has been nothing short of incredible, and we’re thrilled that our community is playing their favorite players and teams in FIFA 23 in record numbers. With the Men’s and Women’s World Cups, and the exciting updates to our With women’s club soccer in the game yet to come, we’re only starting to offer players the most authentic and immersive experience to date.”
There is no doubt that together with the start of the Qatar 2022 World Cup in a few weeks, the year of FIFA 23 is on the way to being a historic milestone in sports video games.
