However, it may be another title, EA Sports FC, which will replace this title. The video game company will rely on more than 300 partners from the world of football.

“It was really about how can we do more for gamers, more for fans. How can we give them more ways to play, how can we bring more partners into the game, and how can we expand beyond boundaries,” said EA CEO, Andrew Wilson, on the decision to end the partnership, according to the New York Times.

The new game is expected to be similar to the old one for the millions of FIFA players around the world, as many of the most famous football clubs and stars will continue to be playable due to separate licensing agreements with their teams and leagues. But major FIFA events such as the World Cup will not be included.
