EA Sports extends FIFA license until 2022

EA Sports and international soccer association FIFA announced today an extension to their current video game licensing agreement, which will now extend until Dec. 31, 2022.

Under this agreement, EA Sports retains exclusive rights to the development of FIFA-branded titles, while still maintaining the status of "presenting partner" of the FIFA Interactive World Cup.

This extension follows last month's news of a continuation of the franchise with FIFA 14, scheduled to release this fall to Xbox 360, PC and PlayStation 3. The series' last installment, FIFA 13, received a 9 out of 10 from Polygon in a review that states: "The infusion of real-life soccer developments throughout the game makes the experience come alive; you feel like you're part of a vibrant, passionate community of soccer fans. FIFA 13's mechanics bring that human element to the fore, and its connected experiences highlight our shared global identity as participants in the enjoyment of the beautiful game."

According to EA Sports, 65 million matches are played every week by users.
