Of course, fall isn’t officially here until the proper influx of EA Sports titles are rolling out. Already, Electronic Arts shipped EA Madden 24 earlier on this year. Not to mention the recent launch for NHL 24 as well. Additionally, Codemasters is also playing its part with EA Sports WRC as well shipping in November too.
One of the biggest launches is EA Sports FC 24. This marks the first entry negating the FIFA branding for Electronic Arts’ annual futbol simulator title. As we can expect, with Electronic Arts attached it will sell well regardless. What was a bigger surprise was the recent delisting of countless FIFA titles ahead of the new game launching last month.
In a new press release from Electronic Arts, the firm shares the game faced good milestones in its first two weeks brandishing its new ‘EA Sports Fc’ moniker. The first day alone welcomed roughly 2.2 million users for the mobile game. As for the flagship release, over 11 million users purchased EA Sports FC 24 in the first two weeks.
We’re thrilled to have so many fans jumping into The World’s Game in both EA SPORTS FC 24 and FC Mobile in just the first few days since launch. In addition to welcoming back millions of our longtime players, new players in FC 24 are up nearly 20% year over year, showing the excitement of football fans everywhere to join the Club. We are building the world’s biggest football community through EA SPORTS FC, and we’re just getting started.Cam Weber, EA Sports President
Noted, Electronic Arts also indicates users that play before November can earn unique in-game items. “Fans who play EA SPORTS FC™ 24 still have the opportunity to become an FC Founder. Play by November 1, 2023 and unlock exclusive benefits including in-game vanity, and objectives and tasks in Ultimate Team, including a Founder Evolution experience.
“As a one-time offer, fans can be there at the beginning of a new era for EA SPORTS FC and claim their title as an FC Founder to join the club with style,” the press release adds. It is also worth pointing out this achievement marks the biggest release for a new IP for this year, technically. Niko Partners analyst David Ahmad shares via X.
