The highly anticipated release of FIFA 2023 is imminently upon us, and it’s looking like an exciting time to be a FIFA fan.
FIFA 23 will in fact be the last of the EA Sports’ FIFA video games, following an announcement made by the companies stating that this is the end of their 30-year partnership, a prospect fans will be disappointed about.
However, all hope is not lost just yet. EA Sports has confirmed that they will be releasing a game to replace the much-loved simulator called EA Sports FC early next year. There is also talk of FIFA developing their own game.
The release date is now confirmed and certain players could even get access to ordering the game early. Want to find out how? We have everything you need to know…

When will FIFA 2023 be released?
It has been announced that the official release date for the UK and worldwide of FIFA 23 will be as soon as 30th September!
However, players who pre-order the Ultimate Edition of the game, at the pretty price of £89.99, will get three-days early access and will be able to play from 27th September.
With the game being the last of the collaboration, fans are expecting big things from the creators. A few exciting features that have already been announced included Cross-play, women’s domestic football clubs and a FIFA World Cup mode.
Another way to gain early access to FIFA 23 is through EA Play, a subscription service that gives subscribers extra and exclusive benefits, including a 10% discount…we like the sound of that!
Fans on Twitter are ecstatic ahead of the release next week, with one stating: “Can FIFA 23 please just come out today as a surprise shock early release?”
It’s safe to say there isn’t much chance of that happening unfortunately!
