In a move that will shock absolutely nobody, EA Sports and FIFA have agreed a licensing deal that will run until 2022. This, of course, means the publisher will continue to develop fully kitted out football games for at least the next nine years.
"EA Sports released the first FIFA-branded soccer game in 1993, and 20 years later our partnership with FIFA continues to be very strong," said Andrew Wilson, Executive Vice President and Head of EA Sports.
"Our franchise has become the benchmark for quality and innovation in the sports videogame genre, and we look forward to many more years of connecting with consumers around the world with our games carrying the prestigious FIFA name."
It looks like Pro Evolution Soccer fans will have to play as 'Man Red' a little longer.
