As you probably know, every year, we are the first website in the world to predict the FIFA release dates correctly. We have been doing it since FIFA 13, and this year, it will not be an exception. Unfortunately, due to the Coronavirus situation, we took a bit longer to accurately predict on which day the new title will come out. Still, we are now secure about when it will happen and want to share it with you. Find out on this page the most likely FIFA 21 release date.
FIFA 21 Release Date
FIFA 21 is a football simulation video game published by Electronic Arts. The 28th installment in the FIFA series is expected to be released on October 09, 2020 (Friday), breaking the pattern of the last years. We estimated the FIFA 21 released date based on many factors, like release dates of previous years, EA meetings of stockholders, interviews, and, most important, internal leaks.
The community is very excited to know the new game, mostly because it is confirmed as one of the launch titles for the new-generation consoles. Opposite to what will happen to Pro Evolution Soccer, a FIFA videogame will be released this year for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S. You can also expect versions for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One and Microsoft Windows. A legacy edition for Nintendo Switch is also on EA’s plans. It is not officially confirmed, but we believe that FIFA 21 will also be played on the Stadia service from Google, a subscription-based cloud gaming platform with streaming video games up to 4K resolution and at 60 frames per second.
Except for new-gen consoles, the EA Sports FIFA 21 release date on all these platforms should be the same. Just like it happened in the last years, it will be a worldwide release. In other words, the FIFA 21 release date will be the same for the UK, the rest of Europe, the United States, Australia, Japan, or any other country. FIFA 21 is expected to be a launch title for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X, which may be out in the last week of November or the first week of December 2020.
FUT and Companion Web App for FIFA 21 are expected to be available for returning FUT gamers on October 1, 2020 (Thursday), more than one week before the official game release. Gamers will receive some welcome packs according to their FUT 20 activity. If everything goes normal, the FIFA 21 Demo will be launched on September 22 (Tuesday).
Another way to start playing FIFA 21 earlier is to subscribe the EA Access or the Origin Access, depending on the platform you usually play. For some dollars more, you will be able to start playing the new FIFA on October 1, 2020.
Last year, FIFA 20 was released on September 27, and EA sold more than 20 million copies.
Keep in mind that, except for the game release day and EA/Origin Access, all other dates indicated in this article are merely indicative. There is no official confirmation of when it will be possible to play FIFA 21 via Web App or demo. However, since the estimated dates of the past years were all correct, the odds of the estimated dates for FIFA 21 being right are high.
