While players recently met with FIFA 22, there are various developments regarding the future of the game.
Recently the name of the game was changed. This decision was finally made for the Konami company PES (Pro Evolution Soccer) and announced that the game would now be released under the name eFootball. However, the reason EA Sports decided to part with FIFA is different.
The 10-year naming agreement between FIFA and EA Sports has expired. Although the negotiations between the parties are ongoing, the manufacturers are skeptical of the new agreement due to the demands of FIFA.
According to the New York Times news, negotiations between the parties have been going on for two years, but no result has yet been reached.
FIFA WANTS EA SPORTS ‘WEALTH
The fee FIFA has asked EA Sports for the new 10-year naming contract has been announced.
Accordingly, under the new agreement, EA Sports will have to pay FIFA $ 1 billion for every four-year World Cup cycle. The 10-year contract will be worth $ 2.5 billion.
EA Sports Front does not accept this fee. Because of this, the name of the game has been on the agenda for a long time. If EA Sports changes the name of the game, it will also reveal many new features that Konami has adapted to eFootball.
Without a new agreement between the parties, the name FIFA will be history in the gaming world.
