Video game company Electronic Arts (EA) has announced that it will stop making FIFA-branded soccer games. This is one of the most profitable franchises in video game history, but EA broke off the partnership claiming that the cost of the license is too high.

EA will continue to make football video games, but starting in 2023 they will be under a new brand, called EA Sports FC. FIFA says it plans to release its own games.

“The FIFA name is the only original global title”, says the entity.

EA Sports created the first FIFA game in 1993.
