The launch of FIFA 22 will take place on October 1, 2021 for Xbox Series X | S, Xbox One, PC, PlayStation 4, PS5 and Nintendo Switch. The next generation consoles will enjoy the innovative and new Hypermotion technology, which will bring us even closer to realism, making every moment of the game much more vibrant than ever. While during the afternoon today, EA will display the FIFA 22 first gameplay, of which we could already see some brief images through the announcement of said revelation, an insider has already FIFA 23 first details revealed months before the release of FIFA 22.
DonkTrading, an account specialized in FIFA via Twitter, has indicated that FIFA 22 could be the last paid game of the EA sports franchise, since it seems that FIFA 23 could be free to play, something that would not be so crazy after seeing the money that the American company generates only with the FIFA Ultimate Team mode. In addition, this practice on the free to play model is becoming fashionable in games beyond Battle Royale, as we saw yesterday in the new Tom Clancy’s XDfiant, The Division Heartland and many others.
FIFA 22 can only be upgraded for free from Xbox One to Xbox Series X | S with the Ultimate Edition

If this rumor turns out to be true, it is most likely that FIFA 23 will break records for active players and therefore increase the sale of microtransactions, since it would be the only expense in the game. In addition to this strange and curious news, said user has indicated that the monthly rewards would be back again. It will be many months until we know something about FIFA 23, now we only have to wait a few hours to see what FIFA 22 will be like on Xbox Series X | S.
