Man F2P with EA, you probably have to pay to go to a different menu, pay to turn subtitles on, etc.
No thanks.

I would like to bet against this happening. EA's licensing costs for FIFA have to be way higher than what Konami pays.

I played FIFA21 a while back and it's a fucking mess. The game is pretty much build for FUT now so this should be no surprise. I'll never buy a fifa again.

This would be insanely stupid.

You don't slaughter your cash cows.

I expect a limited freeplay demo at best.

If I am wrong I will play fifa 64 instead of iss the rest of the year.
what? theyre not slaughtering anything..it makes perfect sense..the cash cow is in the mtx of ultimate team..not the game itself. with this, they release the same shit every year, no stupid costs into physical versions, no fees, just straight up f2p bullshit with mtx. if anything, it should make them more money.

Because F2P mobile phones make a BILLION in one year, something like Sony Music game Fate/Grand Order that made in one year over one billion and probably passed 5 billion mark right now. More market penetration = more MTX = more money.
I'm absolutely gobsmacked that people still need to have this spelled out for them.

The user base of Fifa will double if it goes F2P. That is the hook to get you in and quite literally the point of free to fucking play. To get your ass in the ecosystem.

I'm rather surprised major sports franchises like 2k, FIFA haven't already gone full GaaS.
