When is the FIFA 23 release date?
Lace-up your boots and get ready to take to the pitch, because the FIFA 23 release date is September 30th. It'll be the final game in the FIFA series to bear that name after EA announced that it would change the franchise's name to EA Sports FC starting from next year's installment. FIFA 23 will continue the core series' emphasis on realism and verisimilitude and will boast a wide range of licensed teams, stadiums, and brands, as well as the return of familiar FIFA stalwarts like Ultimate Team and Pro Clubs.

What's new in FIFA 23?
For the first time in the franchise's history, FIFA 23 will feature women's club soccer. Women's teams have featured in FIFA since 2015, but they've only been playable on an international level. Fret not, though; women's international soccer is also returning, and in another franchise first, both women's and men's World Cup tournaments will be available. It seems rumors of FIFA 23 crossplay were true, too, as you'll be able to play the game with your buddies on various different platforms. The game will also boast HyperMotion 2 technology to make its players' movements even more realistic, as well as new gameplay features and more.
We'll learn more about FIFA 23 in the weeks leading up to its release, as according to the game's official website, EA is planning to unveil more info about aspects like the career mode, Volta, and HyperMotion 2. Hopefully, FIFA 23 won't have quite the same focus on loot boxes that its predecessors were criticized for, but only time will tell. FIFA 23 launches for PC, PlayStation, and Xbox on September 30th.
