The recent events came as a shock to many fans of EAs classic football series FIFAbecause they suggested that it might not be mentioned FIFA much longer, and we now have a deeper understanding of why, thanks to a recent report that suggests that the problem is not just with finances, but with freedom EA has with the FIFA License.
A recent New York Times report discusses the issue and speaks to industry veterans like Peter Moore, who holds a senior position at EA Years before leaving, realizing that even the mention of negotiations is atypical and likely a sign in itself.
The main problem is that FIFA seeks more than double what they are currently receiving EA in their existing license agreement and that they want to limit freedom EA has with the FIFA License.
Name of change FIFA Franchise would be a monumental moment in the history of gaming, though the report points to it EA probably wouldn’t lose much as they are still realistically focused on everything EA Changes to and in the absence of competition, in particular due to eFootballs bad start, it doesn’t look like it EA would make the loss of the really work up a sweat FIFA Surname.
